Robin Pascoe

Senior Lecturer Arts and Drama Education

About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education focusing on arts and drama education. I coordinate secondary units in teaching Drama – undergraduate and postgraduate –  and  arts education units in the B.Ed Primary, B.Ed Early Childhood and Primary and teach the arts in the M.Teach courses.

From 2014-2016  I was also the Academic Chair for Secondary Education in the School of Education.

I came to Murdoch University in 2002 following an extensive career in arts education with the Education Department of Western Australia where I was variously the Superintendent for the Arts with responsibility for Arts in schools K-12, Consultant for the Performing Arts K-12 and a District Manager for Curriculum. In my time as Superintendent for the Arts, I led the development of the Western Australian Student Outcome Statements for the Arts that involved extensive consultation and trialing in schools K-12 as well as professional development of teachers. I was writer for the Arts section of the Curriculum Framework [Curriculum Council of WA, 1998] and a member of the writing team for the National Statements and Profiles for the Arts [CURASS/Curriculum Corporation, 1994] with particular responsibility for Drama. From 2009-2014 I was a member of the advisory group working on the Australian Curriculum: The Arts (ACARA) and in 2013 a co-writer of the Drama section. I continued in 2015-2016 to be a subject mentor for drama for ACARA in the development of samples.

I have been Chair of the Drama Syllabus Committees (Curriculum Council of WA) and was Chief Examiner for Year 12 Drama Studies [TEE] and Drama (WACE) 1999-2005/2007-2014. I was Chair of the Assessment, Review and Moderation (ARM) Panel for the Drama Course  implemented as part of Post-Compulsory reform. I continue as a member of the Drama Curriculum Advisory Committee for the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA)

I was chair of the Steering Committee for establishing John Curtin College of the Arts, a selective entry gifted and talented arts college and also one of the first Independent Public Schools (IPS). I was Chair of the Board 2002-2016 and continue to have a vital interest in the College.

I am a Past President of Drama Australia and have held various positions on the Drama Australia Executive as well as President of DramaWest. I have been on the editorial boards of NJ The Drama Australia Journal and New Zealand Research in New Zealand Performing Arts and Education: Nga Mahi a Rehia. I am also a member of the Advisory Board of the International Journal of Education and the Arts.

In July 2013 I was elected President of IDEA, the International Drama/Theatre and Education Association at the IDEA20013 Congress in Paris. As President of IDEA I am a member of the Presidential Forum of the World Alliance for Arts Educators (WAAE). In July 2017 I was re-elected for a second term as President of IDEA at the General Council Meeting held at the University of Evora in Portugal – an occasion celebrating the 25 years since IDEA was founded in Porto Portugal in 1992.

I was the Co-Director of the Australian Government’s National Review of School Music Education (2005) and a member of the review team for the National Review of Visual Education (2006).

My research interests focus on teacher education, arts education; applied aesthetic understanding, creativity, imagination, story and play. I am currently researching making judgments about the effectiveness of arts education in schools as well the education of students with identified gifts and talents in the arts. I am a member of INRAE the International Network or Research in Arts Education and have presented widely at national and international conferences in arts and drama education (Kenya, Norway, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, Turkey, France, China).

2014-2017 I led and managed the AiR (Artist in Residence) Commission at Murdoch, a project designed to bring together Teaching Artists and Primary Teacher Education students through innovative, embodied practical workshops in Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts. Teaching Artists work alongside and with me in inducting teacher education students into practice and pedagogy. The website for this project is www.aircommissionatmurdoch.org. This project is funded by the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts and Department of Education with funds from the Australia Council for the Arts.
