In their selected specialism, students will engage in the theoretical and practical application of a range of arts discipline forms within various social and cultural contexts. The emphasis will be on ways of implementing these in arts discipline specific lessons that also incorporate assessment and record keeping strategies. Within a studio and computer lab environment, students will have practical experience with a range of techniques, technologies and processes relevant to their chosen arts discipline. The outcomes of these practical explorations will provide students with teaching and learning support materials that may be incorporated into the development of arts curricula, for teaching within the Arts and in the broader curriculum. Students develop experiential knowledge and understandings that will assist them in designing and implementing arts programs within current State/National curricula guidelines and informed by selected international arts education best practice.
Assessment will vary according to the selected discipline-based arts curriculum area but will total 4000 words or equivalent. Assessment will focus on students' demonstration of knowledge and skills relating to the selected art form and to apply appropriate teaching methodologies to classroom teaching as well as curriculum design and development in the selected discipline art strand.
