Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


This course encourages individual and co-operative development of foundational knowledge, understandings and skills for teaching in drama, dance, media, music and visual arts. Students will have the opportunity to engage in experiences to develop personal expression, aesthetic judgement and critical awareness, in order to become more responsive to children's creative needs. Students will experience constructivist approaches and focus upon play and inquiry-based pedagogies, reflecting upon their learning and critically analysing the use of these pedagogical tools for creativity. At all times during the course the inclusive teaching environment and aspects of safe and ethical practice will be considered. The use of information communication technologies will be embedded throughout this course. NOTE: Minimum enrolment numbers apply to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the WEB offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
