The prerequisites are: ART (Including the areas of Art, Craft, Computer-generated Art, Sculpture, Photography, and recognising expertise in materials such as pottery, ceramics, textiles, wood and metal) Major study in relevant area(s) of Art which includes at least one quarter of a year of practical Art content.

3 hours per week or equivalent and off campus equivalent
To be read in conjunction with prerequisite requirements above.
1. Major: A total of three-quarters of a year of successful full-time higher education studies, usually comprising sequential discipline study taken over three years, e.g. a part in each of the first, second and third years of study, or equivalent study. In most programs this equates to six units, with no more than two at first year level and no less than two units at third year level.
2. Sub-major: A total of half a year of successful full-time higher education study, usually comprising sequential discipline studies taken over two years, e.g. a part in each of the first and second years of study, or equivalent study. In most programs this equates to four units, with no more than two at first year level. Students undertaking a Visual Art double methodology must choose this unit. For advice contact unit chairs or course advisers.
ECA733 students should note that arts discipline methodology specialisms are available for on and off-campus study strictly as follows:
• Visual Arts – available on-campus at Burwood and Warrnambool or off-campus
• Music - available on campus at Burwood, or off-campus
Music Education (Middle years curriculum) (B, X)
This arts methodology specialism will focus on the compulsory years of schooling. As double music education students, participants in this module will undertake both research and classroom application of the European teaching methodologies of Dalcroze, Orff-Schulwerk, and Kodaly and of the African musical repertoire. Students will consider how inclusive approaches encourage cross cultural engagement. They will apply processes associated with the principles of these music education methods to practical activities which incorporate a range of classroom instruments (melodic and non-melodic). The activities and tasks students develop are designed with accompanying assessment strategies ready to be implemented in their music programs.
Visual Arts Education (Middle years curriculum) (B, W)
This arts methodology specialism will focus on the compulsory years of schooling. As double visual arts education students, participants in this module will address the challenge of designing a visual arts program that is inclusive of a range of social and cultural perspectives in our global context. Students will explore a range of art forms in order to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the visual arts/art elements, principles and concepts in preparation for developing tasks and activities for the visual arts program. Students consider the contingencies required for studio-based as well as general art classroom contexts. Students develop strategies for implementing the curriculum and assessment of student responses using a broad range of media, equipment, techniques and processes. Research is used as a means of understanding how art works by men and women can reflect and lend insight to a broad range of visual arts/art and cultural contexts, traditions, perspectives and styles. Students view and discuss, critically analyse and in keeping with Postmodern thinking in the visual arts, appropriate from and parody art styles and cultural communications.
Visual Arts Education (Middle years curriculum) (X)
This arts methodology specialism will focus on the compulsory years of schooling. Participants in this unit will address the development of contemporary visual art curriculum, and the skills required to design and implement motivational and student-relevant art learning in a range of settings including art galleries and virtual learning environments. It will cover developmental theories and philosophies of art education and explore a range of issues with respect to curriculum design, including the inter-disciplinary relationships between artists and art teachers, and their impact for the ways in which the curriculum operates as a focus for deep learning. Students will examine ways of fostering creative expression among learners, the creative process and individual expression. Through exploration of practical studio techniques in specific art making disciplines, students learn the reciprocal influence of the arts and their cultural, social, and historical contexts. Students will develop teaching and learning strategies for implementing art curricula and to design and produce teaching resources relevant to these learning experiences. This includes ways to incorporate selected forms of ICT in order to broaden knowledge of artistic possibilities and to design and guide experiences in which learners with different skill levels, backgrounds, and learning styles can achieve.
