Current Practice A (In-coming) FSX318


Drawing on multiple interpretations of the term current (belonging to the time actually passing; passing from one to another; circulating and flowing), Current Practice (In-coming) and its sister unit Current Practices (Out-going) provides a framework for significant modes of engagement with contemporary international thinking, practice and discourse.

Current Practice promotes mobility, contact and exchange for students with internationally respected practitioners and contexts.

Current Practice A (In-coming) is an elective unit structured to respond to interstate and/or international visiting practitioners/academics engaged at TCotA for a discrete duration to deliver an intensive and specialised master class program of study to inform and develop a student's self reflexive practice.

Current Practice A (In-coming) is co-delivered by TCotA staff, providing supportive activity around the intensive sessions.
