This subject synthesises teacher candidate’s broad (and developing) understanding of Visual Art curriculum including VELS, VCE and Australian National Curriculum, with the realities of what they see happening in schools. Teacher candidates will explore how the wide diversity of secondary school students develop individual academic and social knowledge values and beliefs through visual art practice. Through the design and implementation of a “curriculum project”, teacher candidates will examine the role of the art teacher and her/his curriculum in this process, with a particular emphasis on the needs of a society representative of a broad panoply of cultures. This is done through a praxis model. In-depth discussion of professional literature and analysis of practicum experiences will allow teacher candidates to re-examine their personal epistemologies, and re-articulate their concepts of pedagogy. A “curriculum project” will require teacher candidates to explore these findings in a school or community setting, through a self-designed strategy.
On completion of this subject, the teacher candidate will be able to:
