Overview

The second aim of the UNESCO Road Map for Arts Education (2006) affirms that experiences in arts education are the foundation for a balanced creative, cognitive, emotional, aesthetic and social approach for the development of people from birth to old age. The skills and expertise to provide high quality experiences for learners in both the conception and delivery of arts activities and awareness of their powerful ability to engage learners in a range of content areas is a central feature of this course. This course provides important knowledge, skills and understanding for pre-service teachers to maximise the effectiveness of the arts through integration with one another and also their ability to enhance learning in other key learning areas in the Australian Curriculum.

Building upon the foundation established in the first arts course this course encourages further in-depth exploration of the five arts subjects: Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts and provides pre-service teachers with the skills to both teach the Arts and to also understand how to integrate arts-based approaches to assist teaching in key learning areas of the Australian Curriculum such as: English, Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences, Technologies, Health and Physical Education and Languages. This course will enable pre-service teachers to teach with, about, in and through the arts and understand and utilise important knowledge relevant to arts integration.
