Sensory Learning in the Visual Arts

Thursday 22 June, 9am – 3.30pm

Victorian teachers are required to build their capacity to teach learners with special needs. This professional learning program explores sensory learning and includes developmental learning activities that engage visual, auditory and vestibular senses. This program will support teachers in achieving standards descriptors 1.6, 1.5 or 4.1 for their VIT registration.

Rich sensory experiences are fundamental to wellness and healthy development. This experiential workshop aims to bring awareness to our attitudes and preconceptions of creativity in relationship to sensory learning as well as learning in the visual arts through the senses, providing teachers with professional learning for working with students with special needs and indeed all students!

Rebecca Knaggs is a practicing artist, facilitator and passionate arts educator with diverse experience (including disability and mental health services) engaging people from all walks of life in their own unique form of creative self-expression.

Recommended for Visual Arts educators and generalist teachers of all year levels.
