The Visual Arts Part 3/Specialist AQ Course enhances professional leadership practice and the collective integration of knowledge and skills through critical reflection and inquiry. Candidates explore topics and issues of particular relevance to the context in which they work, focusing on change and innovation in Visual Arts practice.

Through a critical, pedagogical lens, candidates explore in a holistic and integrated manner the theoretical foundations of visual arts, learners’ development and the learning environment, program planning and implementation, instructional practices, assessment and evaluation. Critical to course implementation is the modeling of a positive learning environment reflecting care, diversity, and equity that supports candidates’ ongoing learning and enhancement of professional knowledge and instructional leadership.
