MR510 : The Arts in Early Childhood Education

There are three threads woven into this course. These are personal arts experience, theoretical perspectives and educational research. You will reflect on your cultural identity within your personal engagement with one of the arts, consider arts education in the early childhood sector through involvement in research and critically discuss arts education theories. The selection of an individual pathway through dance, drama, music-sound arts or visual arts is encouraged. This personal arts-making journey and reflective process occurs alongside the observation and analysis of an infant’s, toddler’s or young child’s arts learning within an early childhood setting.
