BOSTES has produced a professional development video for HSC Visual Arts teachers as part of our commitment to helping teachers improve and maintain their teaching practice.
The video was filmed at the Visual Arts marking centre for the 2015 HSC, and focuses on the use of “critical dialogue” in the marking process. The critical dialogue involves two markers discussing the qualities of a body of work, before individually considering the work’s relationship to the marking guidelines and awarding an independent mark. The critical dialogue facilitates a deeper engagement of the conceptual strengths, meaning and resolution of a body of work than may be possible for a marker or teacher viewing a work by themselves.
BOSTES strongly recommends that all HSC Visual Arts teachers watch the video to gain an understanding of the HSC marking process.
Further information can be found in the Visual Arts syllabus and related documents.
