Subject to the availability of staff in particular discipline-based arts education areas on each campus, the unit will include the following discipline-based Performing arts and Visual arts curriculum areas for study:
- Visual arts;
- Media arts.
This unit is designed to introduce students to the theory and practice of arts education, through the development of personal skills in arts practice and exploring responding to the arts and secondly, in the design and development of curricula materials in the Performing arts and the Visual arts. Throughout the unit students participate in studio class activities in all of the selected arts discipline in order to develop personal professional skills and in computer sessions that introduce them to the use of e technologies and digital media for creative expression and for developing e-learning teaching materials.
This work is informed by a study of current state, national and international arts education initiatives. Throughout the unit, links are made between relevant theories of teaching and learning and their application in classroom teaching in both the Performing arts and the Visual arts. For example, students develop a sequence of arts lessons as part of their seminar activities, which may be implemented during Professional Experience placements.
