During this module, you will look at the role and value of the arts (Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Art) in education contexts and make meaningful links between theory, research, policy, and practice.        Each art form will be individually considered and you will also engage in cross-arts/interdisciplinary approaches.  The module will go on to introduce you to understandings of the arts in educational futures and consider what alternatives they offer.  This will include both theoretical perspectives and practical applications within and beyond formal education. This will equip you with critical, reflective practice-focused approaches to developing possible educational futures in your own contexts.
