In this unit students will construct, implement and evaluate learning experiences through engaging with and exchanging different forms of knowledge, including the arts, language and numeracy. Students will participate in research that involves them in critical engagements with a range of sign systems. Commonalities between the arts and numeracy will be established including colour, shape, line, form, tone, space, rhythm, time, texture, tactility, motion and various approaches to problem-solving. Students will examine, critique and design interdisciplinary and integrated curriculum.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. develop an understanding of integrated curriculum as a pedagogy;
  2. critique integrated curriculum as a pedagogy;
  3. design, plan and evaluate integrated learning experiences for a range of learners; and
