Content

This unit aims to provide students with opportunities to enhance and enrich knowledge, skills and strategic approaches to learning and teaching in their selected specialist discipline (Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Art). Students undertake individual and collaborative explorations and exercises to navigate areas of high relevance to creative arts education, and the application of the arts for learning. Digital technologies, methodologies and creative pedagogies are applied and tested within diverse educational, social and cultural contexts. Students have agency in negotiating an assessment project of relevance to their specific learning interests and aspirations. This unit also lays the foundations for future research-based projects of relevance to each student's chosen specialisation.
