HM2063 - Education for Health and Wellbeing
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
Offered each year in Townsville only.
This subject is designed to lay a foundation for the teaching of health and well-being
education in primary and secondary schools. Interactions between the individual, peers
and community with their socio-cultural, physical, political and economic environments
will form the basis of analysis. Students will be introduced to the determinants of
health, health literacy, salutogenesis, and health promotion to understand the relationship
between young people's health and learning. The subject encourages students to become
critical consumers of health and wellbeing programs and initiatives through understanding
how health is socially constructed. Students confront key issues within health education
and develop ideas on how to deal with what are frequently sensitive and controversial
areas of the curriculum.
- develop analytical skills and approaches to critique health programs, initiatives
and strategies and their implementation in schools;
- evaluate your role as a teacher in the implementation of a range of policy documents
and health promotion strategies within school contexts with a view to improving the
health of all Australians;
- develop knowledge and understanding of the social construction of health and wellbeing
for individuals, peers and communities.
