CCA & DLTC
play a prominent role in promoting arts education with interdisciplinary approaches. Our colleagues have been exploring various ways to infuse interdisciplinary elements into Music and Visual Arts courses to enrich course content and inspire interdisciplinary innovation for decades. In Hong Kong, STEAM is one of the important approaches to facilitating interdisciplinary learning and teaching in primary and secondary schools. Teachers and researchers may still find it difficult to infuse STEAM elements into Music and Visual Arts learning and teaching, however. This website will not only provide a useful platform for teachers and researchers to communicate, share ideas and contribute to interdisciplinary learning and teaching but also support STEAM research.
