As Naomi reflects: “As an arts educator, I am not prescriptive, I see my role as the‘ guide on the side. ’I offer students a range of options and encourage them to take charge of their education. I encourage learners to:
observe their surroundings, learn and apply skills across other learning areas, in an Authentic transdisciplinary way.
develop their own interpretations,
develop ideas, and put those ideas into action, and have the confidence to test their ideas regardless of the outcomes,
use failure positively, as a springboard, a learning opportunity,
work together and express themselves confidently and share ideas,
learn and apply skills across other learning areas, in an Authentic transdisciplinary way.
I hope you will be able to develop methods and techniques that you can apply to your teaching and learning after this course. "
