This course aims to develop students' expertise in becoming confident and effective classroom teachers of Art. This is achieved by ensuring that students develop and extend their own experience and understanding of art and by relating that experience and understanding to the needs of the classroom situation.
Coursework links directly with school-based activity, and the study of educational theory is related to practice in all aspects of the course. Students will be given the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the role of art in contemporary culture, while reflecting on educational issues and contexts will help to explore the value of art education in the classroom.
Emphasis is placed on curriculum development in relation to the requirements of the National Curriculum, the school syllabus, and examinations. Other aspects will include technical methods, organisation and discipline, the management of resources including health and safety requirements, display, assessment, and recording and reporting. Methods of study include lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, and individual study.
