Overview

 On top of gaining practical experience of the educational theories used in today’s classrooms, you’ll develop a solid understanding of national literacy and numeracy requirements for children from Kindergarten to Year 6, while specifically focusing on subjects including visual arts, drama, music and dance.

During your second, third and fourth year of study, you’ll take a range of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) units which are taught on-site in primary schools, offering you the opportunity to connect with students across all primary year levels in subjects including English, science, maths, health and PE, technologies, humanities and social sciences, as well as via a specific arts education internship. You’ll graduate ready to inspire children aged five to 12, using creativity, imagination and ingenuity.

Study a Bachelor of Primary Education - Creative Arts from University of Canberra and you will:

  • gain appropriate scientific, literacy and numeracy knowledge
  • learn the theories and principles that are the foundation for educational practice in primary settings
  • demonstrate an understanding of student needs and differences, and the relevance of these to learning in inclusive, indigenous, English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EALD) and mainstream settings
  • plan and develop appropriate teaching activities for students from a diverse range of backgrounds
  • develop and implement effective assessment strategies and carry out evaluation of teaching programs, resources and your own teaching
  • apply the required content knowledge for all primary school curriculum areas to teaching, assessment and reporting methods, alternate/enhanced literacy and numeracy strategies, and the effective use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in teaching and learning
  • reflect on your practice and experiences, and engage in a process of continual improvement.
