|Subject Overview:||This subject investigates the distinctive forms of knowledge and understanding characteristics of learning in the arts, together with their outcomes and how they are evidenced, and explores strategies for implementation and advocacy. |
Through critical observation and close analysis of their own or another arts-based educational context, the students identify the integral connections between arts, play and creativity; the role of the arts in shaping the development of understanding of the external world and cultural, interpersonal and individual identities; and arts-specific forms of cognitive, critical, sensory, emotional and kinaesthetic understanding
This leads to exploration of the manifestations and outcomes of art-based learning – and how these outcomes are evidenced in research, literature and practice.
This in turn leads into addressing the strategic imperatives for arts-based learning in terms of implementation, policy change and advocacy in micro- and macro-social contexts
|Objectives:||The students will: |
