Content

This unit introduces students to teaching and learning in, about and through the arts in early childhood. Students engage with creative theories and pedagogies by being immersed in music visual arts, and media arts. A focus of the unit is on students developing their competencies as teachers, artists and researchers in the arts. By exploring both discipline-specific concepts and knowledge and integrated curriculum approaches, students gain an understanding of how to plan and implement creative arts experiences in educational programs. Students will extend practical skills in the use of e-technologies and digital media both for creative expression and for the development of digital e-learning artefacts. Their work is informed by current national and international debate on creativity and arts education initiatives and research including, but not limited to, STEM to STEAM, Creativity and Innovation and Cultural identity.
