This course closely examines the knowledge base underpinning the principles and practices of learning and teaching in the Visual Arts in the Stage 6 course by investigating the aims, objectives, outcomes, content, key terms and course requirements of all visual arts syllabi. In particular this Unit focuses on introducing pedagogy strategies for assessing for learning in the Visual Arts 7-12 and the other syllabi studied. Subsequently a range of strategies for teaching and assessing visual arts practices will be explored. In addition this Unit will introduce candidates to various pedagogy strategies for teaching Visual Arts 7-12, to meet the needs of all students, specifically Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and students with special education needs. Through thorough and critical research of contemporary models of pedagogy in the Visual Arts and exploring the professional standards framework and its impact on the work of a teacher, candidates will begin to develop a teaching philosophy.
Candidates may need to complete an additional unit of study in the Faculty of Architecture Tin Sheds program
