The College of Arts and Schooling is house to three of Deakin’s largest and most respected faculties – Training, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Communication and Creative Arts – as well as the Institute of Koorie Education. She started with Framing Schooling as Artwork: The Octopus Has a Good Day (New York: Academics Faculty Press, 2005); continued quickly thereafter with Why Our Schools Want the Arts (New York: Academics Faculty Press, 2008), Ordinary Gifted Kids: The Power and Promise of Individual Attention (New York: Lecturers School Press, 2010), and Why Our Excessive Colleges Need the Arts (New York: Academics Faculty Press, 2012).
The institution of the Arts Training Research Group is enhancing our capacity to prioritise its vision in a perception in the worth of arts and learning as an intrinsic part of human culture that deserves formal recognition in faculties and wider society, and as a method of remodeling and renewing instructional systems to attain precious private, social and cultural aims which can benefit all kids, younger people and life lengthy learners of all ages.
