Abstract

This research reports the impact of changes made to an Arts education module inAboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures within a Bachelor ofEducation degree, and the learning and experience of pre-service teachers inresponse to these changes. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music and visualarts making was presented in the module as rich and abundant material to bereflected on and introduced in the classroom. The authors showcased thetransformative possibilities for pre-service teachers of studying, reflecting on, andlearning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts practises. The authorswho crafted the module regarded it as a way to encourage two-way (or both ways)learning in which the celebration of Aboriginal creative knowledges in teachingwas encouraged. Pre-service teachers were surveyed, interviewed, and asked toreflect on their exposure to Aboriginal music and visual arts in their learning. Theresearch mapped the growth in respect and understandings that studyingAboriginal arts and Torres Strait Islander creativities developed in pre-serviceteachers. The research showcased visual arts making from non-Aboriginal studentsthat was produced in response to Aboriginal music and that demonstrated highlevels of empathy and understanding.
