REGISTER HERE NOW - NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIES SECONDARY VISUAL ARTS TEACHERS ONLY

This one-day conference for secondary visual arts teachers in the NSW Department of Education and Communities is a joint initiative of UNSW School of Education and the NSW Department of Education and Communities.

It will examine suggested amendments for the Visual Arts Stage 6 syllabus and offer opportunities to reflect on changes in the artworld since the syllabus was first published in 1999. At this stage these suggested amendments have no official status. This day provides a way for teachers to consider what is proposed, that builds on the Literature Review for the National Review of Visual Education (Brown 2006) (known in recent VADEA conferences as The Matrix).

A keynote address by Dr Kerry Thomas will provide the means to examine the suggested new content for what are being called the ‘Expanded Frames’. Dr Karen Maras will then examine connections between these Expanded Frames and the Conceptual Framework, with a focus on relational and social practice.

Sessions on approaches to the increasingly changing domains of interactivity and multidisciplinary practice will also be explored. Teachers will consider their role as change agents as they contemplate new approaches to pedagogical practice in the secondary visual arts classroom.
