CURRICULUM FOR EXCELLENCE: a study of art & design and the impact on Higher Education.
This small study was undertaken in two secondary schools in Edinburgh where art and design teachers were willing to be interviewed on video following a semi-structured questionnaire.
This study asked the questions:
• Will these pupils be better prepared for art college and university?
• Have they had time in the timetable to develop the necessary skills?
• What technologies are they using beyond paint, pencils and clay?
This study illustrates how existing pedagogies of art and design can embrace Curriculum for Excellence and be enhanced to meet the needs of higher education. There are clearly challenges facing timetables, resources and assessment, but these are perennial issues that will constantly require negotiation and campaigning.
