Julie Ballantyne - School of Music

“Finding my voice”: fostering independent identities through transformative learning and assessment design in music teacher education.

With a carefully designed suite of learning and assessment strategies across the music education program, Dr Julie Ballantyne facilitates students’ progressive development of their professional identity. Pre-service music teachers are assisted in becoming independent learners who can think critically, and creatively engage with the complexities of the profession. Dr Ballantyne’s sustained success in this area is evidenced through student nominations for awards, academic publications and presentations and the esteem of teaching colleagues and graduated students.
