Tertiary and Teacher Programs
Bundanon provides a great location for teacher professional development and tertiary retreats. The unique and relaxing setting facilitates the sharing of professional knowledge and developing skills and approaches to teaching and the arts.
Bundanon’s experienced education staff are able to develop teacher professional development retreats aimed at your specific needs, or you are welcome to use our outstanding facilities to conduct your own teacher retreats. From time to time, Bundanon Trust conducts its own teacher professional development retreats utilising the experience of artists in residence and partner organisations.
Bundanon Trust partners with the UOW to deliver relevant practical experiences for its Masters students in Visual Arts Education. In this workshop students develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in making artworks inspired by their investigations of the world as subject matter. They use expressive art forms such as sculpture, printmaking, drawing, collage and painting. They also develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in appreciating their own artworks and those of others, recognising some relationships between artists, artworks, audiences and how the world is interpreted. Planning for a range of student ages and abilities are also discussed.
The Master of Teaching (Primary) provides a professional course of pre-service education for aspiring primary school teachers (K-6). The Master of Teaching program aims to combine the practical and theoretical elements of teaching by immersing students in both classroom and university studies from the commencement of the program.
