9858 Arts Education Integration will expose students to arts education programs offered by arts institutions and out-of-school arts programs. These programs are an important resource for classroom teachers, and can be utilised in different ways to augment and enhance a classroom program based on the Australian Arts Curriculum. Students will elect either the same arts discipline as they chose in 9859 Arts Education Internship or an alternate arts discipline. Students will then be placed with the education program of an appropriate arts institution or out-of-school arts program. In this unit students will explore effective ways of integrating educational programs offered by arts institutions and out-of-school arts programs into a primary classroom and school-wide arts curriculum. Students will engage with technological and conceptual learning from the perspective of the chosen arts discipline as a human endeavour via understanding the place of the environment, Indigeneity, gender, information management, and design systems.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate a highly developed capacity to use the terminology correctly and demonstrate skills in their chosen arts disciplines as outlined in the Australian Arts curriculum (Foundation to 6);

2. Enhance their pedagogical approach, using external providers, to teach their chosen arts discipline and understand the implications of this approach for childrens' learning;

3. Deepening their understanding of the nature of the arts and its relationship to everyday life and its social contexts;

4. Recognise the significance of arts education as part of a whole school inclusive curriculum;

5. Develop an appreciation of the contemporary issues in arts education;

6. Enrich their understanding of the role of arts institutions play in the teaching and learning of the Arts; and
