Professional Issues in Music Education - MUED4632

Year - 2020

This unit of study assists students in making the transition to music teaching professional. It draws on knowledge and skills derived from previous units of study, and provides students with a broader view of the social and professional contexts of teaching with reference to local, national and international educational settings. It focuses on special education, educational sociology and gender issues to explore aspects of individual difference (cognitive, social, emotional and physical). In combination with the practical teaching experience in the associated unit of study, Professional Experience 3 (MUED 4633), this unit provides a foundation and opportunity for students to become reflective practitioners in the field of music education. The focus on individual needs of school students provides a specific perspective on special education required for teaching in NSW schools.
