thesis
posted on 2023-05-26, 08:08 authored by NAN ZHANG
This thesis with publications explored the impacts and implications of dance education in second language education. This qualitative study was underpinned by a phenomenological framework in which case study, autoethnography, and educational connoisseurship and criticism were used. The participants included me, students, educational leaders and teachers in Victorian community schools, government and independent mainstream schools. The data collection methods were interviews, observations and documents. Data were analysed using thematic analysis. The findings provided pivotal evidence regarding the significant role of dance. This study also revealed the challenges of including dance in second language education, suggesting a need for teacher training.
