About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit focuses on processes of creative thinking and creative expression in children and introduces students to the theory and practices of using drama, music, dance, media arts and visual arts in prior to school and school contexts. Arts-based pedagogies, collaborative learning, multiple modes of learning and reflective practices are the key operating principles of the unit. The unit will encompass creativity both as it relates to the arts as well as its critical role in fostering creative thinking and teaching and learning practices. Students will explore the relevance of the arts in the development of children’s play and will engage with appropriate information and communication technologies for learning in the arts. The unit provides an understanding of the importance of the art forms both as pedagogical approaches across the early childhood and primary years and as creative arts in their own right.
