Introduction to Arts Education EMT694

Hobart

Introduction

This unit provides an introduction to working with the arts in educational contexts. In this unit you will develop an understanding of the distinctive value of arts education, particularly the opportunities that it provides to deliver integrated and creative early childhood and primary learning experiences. By the end of this unit, you will be better able to articulate the value of the arts in education; engage with the essential elements and processes of each of the five art forms (dance, drama, media arts, music and visual art); apply the arts organising strands of making and responding across the art form areas; and understand the critical role of the teacher in initiating quality arts education in and across a school curriculum.
