|Subject Overview:||A study of qualitative methods of inquiry appropriate for researching arts education in a contemporary context. The subject examines interpretive research methodologies as they inform the reflective practice of arts educators. Current approaches to researching drama, dance, music and visual arts in educational settings are critically examined. Topics include qualitative methods of data collection, analysis and interpretation and the writing of interpretive and reflexive research reports. Arts practitioners as researchers in their own classrooms, schools and community settings are a focus of the subject. Students select an area of inquiry relevant to their arts education context and design and implement a small-scale study incorporating a reflective practitioner's stance.|
