Home is where the art is: using design-based research to support arts engagement in Australian home education

Burke, Katie (2016) Home is where the art is: using design-based research to support arts engagement in Australian home education. Australian Art Education, 37 (2). pp. 133-150. ISSN 1032-1942


Home education is increasingly recognised in Australia as a legitimate educational option. Given the significance of the Arts as an integral component of a quality holistic education, developing insight into how this rapidly growing educational sector is engaging with the Arts is a timely issue. This paper explores a doctoral project which is focusing on understanding and supporting arts practices in Australia’s home education community. Motivated by a desire for research to have a beneficial impact, the researcher is working with home educators to develop an arts website and communication space that responds to the needs of home educators and is underpinned by the principles of quality arts education.
