Evaluation of professional development to support the arts in the New Zealand curriculum

Report on an evaluation of how the professional development, offered on a national basis to schools over a two-year period commencing 2001, supported the initial implementation of Arts in the New Zealand Curriculum.

This included a survey of participants on their views of the issues they and their schools faced in implementing the curriculum and how they considered the professional development assisted them in addressing these issues.

There are 3 overarching aims for this research:
1. to provide information on the extent to which the providers incorporated effective professional development practices in the programmes they designed to support the implementation of The Arts in the New Zealand Curriculum;
2. to describe specific school-based factors that lead to successful curriculum implementation; and
3. to explore how the Arts curriculum is being planned for and implemented in New Zealand schools. This final aim is intended to inform the Ministry of Education's ongoing Curriculum Review processes.
