Taught as a three-hour block. To meet the agreement we have established with our industry partner, The Art Gallery of New South Wales, this unit will be taught as a three-hour block. This structure allows us to engage in focused and extended object-based learning activities, the logistics and pedagogy of which require an extended block of time. Teaching in a three hour block means less disruption to the gallery's schedule.
