VADEA NSW will work to build the profile of the value of student learning in the visual arts and design and communicate this understanding to visual arts and design and other educators, policy makers, parents, students and the community. Advocacy involves a professional commitment to maintaining the development of professional knowledge and practice and a commitment to the profession and wider community.
- This goal will be addressed through the development of alliances with key individuals and stakeholders, and state, national and international professional associations and organisations to strengthen policy and practice; contributions to state and national initiatives and debates; presentations at state, national and international conferences in art and design education and in the broader educational context; showcasing exemplary performances of students and associated practices in teaching and learning including curriculum design, assessment and teacher performances; publications in peer reviewed journals and other educational and visual arts and design/arts journals.
Research in Visual Arts and Design Education
VADEA NSW will work on expanding access to current research in visual arts and design education and emerging policy issues that affect the professional practices, knowledge base and values of visual arts and design educators. Research involves a professional commitment to maintaining the development of professional knowledge and practice and a commitment to the profession and wider community.
- Connect visual arts and design educators in a range of fields, including galleries, museums, universities, high schools and primary schools. And service the needs of educators in both metropolitan and regional areas.
