Examining preservice primary teachers’ potential for teaching art in primary schools
Preservice primary teachers may not implement the presiding mandatory art education syllabus if they are not confident to teach art. Outcomes-based education may provide a basis for examining preservice primary teacher’s potential for teaching art. Eighty-seven final-year preservice teachers were surveyed on their confidence for teaching primary art education. The items on this survey were derived from outcomes in a presiding state art education syllabus. Although results indicated these preservice teachers believed they were prepared to teach art education in primary schools, many believed they were less prepared for discussing artists and their work, and organising meetings to talk with artists. The preparation of preservice teachers needs to be aligned with a presiding art syllabus, and the potential for preservice teachers to teach art within an education system may be measured using a survey with items associated with the syllabus outcomes. Survey data can provide valuable information for further enhancing tertiary education coursework in art education.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
