Teaching Visual Arts 3B (EDSE4022)


This unit builds on the core unit EDSE4021 through a deeper exploration of the knowledge base underpinning the principles and practices of learning and teaching in the Visual Arts in Stage 6 course by investigating the aims, objectives, outcomes, content, key terms and course requirements of the Stage 6 Visual Arts and Content Endorsed syllabi. This unit further explores issues and perspectives of the HSC written examination through mapping and planning a Stage 6 program of learning. Additionally this unit considers the relationship between teachers and the wider community and further explores professional communities within and external to the school environment. In particular this unit facilitates candidates' experiences to contribute to these communities of practice and using their resources, knowledge and experiences to further enhance student learning in a school environment.
