Abstract

Students entering primary teaching programs at Murdoch University have consistently shown anxiety about teaching the arts. They indicate a lack of content knowledge, artistic experiences and pedagogical understanding to effectively teach the arts in schools. The authors report on introducing students to active, hands-on, practical and embodied learning; model "studio thinking" (Hetland et al) and focus on arts practice and aesthetic understanding.
