Content

This unit is the second in a sequence undertaken by students completing an arts methodology specialism for teaching in secondary schools. Building on foundations laid in Arts Education Discipline Study 1, this unit focuses on contemporary arts curriculum initiatives in the post-compulsory years 11-12 of secondary schooling (VCE) and where applicable VCAL, VET, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Industry contexts. Students will build on their understanding of curriculum development, to interpret and implement VCE study designs in their selected specialism. They will consider theoretical constructs underpinning the rationale and aims for the arts in designing curriculum, devising learning outcomes, evaluation, assessment, reporting processes and resources. Students will engage with learning technologies to inform critical and analytical discourse in classroom practices. Current national and international curriculum trends and future directions in specific disciplines will also be considered. Professional experience placement observations and experiences will be supported by class-based activities to encourage students to develop skills as lifelong reflective practitioners.
