    Welcome! We’re so glad you have joined us for this new short course on visual arts in ECE. The course officially started with an introductory webinar with course director Vicki Hargraves on October 18. A recording of the webinar is available to watch on the first page of the course.

    How to access the course

    You will be able to access the course from Monday October 18 from this page, or from your Profile page, as shown opposite, below the bookmarks section. Each time you return, you can pick up where you left off.

    To access your Profile at any time, either choose ‘Log in‘ next to The Education Hub logo at the top of the website, or click on your user name in the same location if you are already logged in.

    Please note, the course is best used on a laptop, tablet or desktop computer, and is not optimised for use on mobile phone.

    If you have any technical issues, please email us.

    The course comprises 8 parts across 5 modules. Each part is estimated to be about one hour’s work, not including additional tasks that you will complete in your early childhood setting. Please work your way through each module in order, using the ‘Mark complete‘ buttons to keep track of your progress.

    You will find the following elements throughout the course:

    • Videos to watch and readings to introduce key ideas.
    • Questions for reflection, to help you engage as much as possible with the course content. We encourage you to use these questions as a stimulus for personal written reflections.
    • Activities, which have you planning, implementing and evaluating visual arts experiences for children in your own setting with specific goals in mind.
    • Online discussion boards in which you can share some of your experiences, thoughts and reflections. We hope you’ll benefit from hearing each other’s ideas. You will be able to see the forums for each module in the sidebar, and each forum will contain a topic for each part of that module. You will also be able to access the forums from your Profile page.

    In the last section of the course, we will ask you to provide feedback on your experience. As you go through the course, please note any issues or mistakes, and include those in your feedback to help us to refine the course experience. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    We look forward to working with you. If you’re enrolled, you can get started on Module 1 below as soon as you’re ready.
