This subject was previously known as EDE262 Visual and Media Arts for Early Childhood.
Through engagement with Visual and Media Arts, this subject focuses on the principles, planning and delivery of authentic forms of arts education in early childhood settings. Inquiry-based learning that embraces creativity, self-expression, meaning-making and the communication of ideas is presented within a child development context. Planning for arts learning is examined within the framework of the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care, and the Australian Curriculum; and organising programs, environment provocations and pedagogical documentation around a cyclic process of observation, study and responsive planning are practised. Integral to the subject are experiential learning opportunities designed to enlarge students’ understanding of the scope and nature of arts learning across the early childhood years; and also, to develop their own visual and media arts literacy to a foundational standard for teaching.
