Civic Engagement and the Arts and Humanities: An Australian Perspective
Jones, Adrian
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v14 n3 p298-304 Jul 2015
An Australian scholar in the Arts and Humanities responds to recent US models emphasizing civic-engaged learning as a way to renew the humanities in undergraduate education. Policy contexts and curriculum initiatives of kindred trends in recent Australian undergraduate education in the humanities are contrasted in this essay. The Australian experience reiterates the worth of a turn towards engaging undergraduates in active learning contexts which take them out of classrooms and libraries.
