Ligia Pelosi

DipTeach (Primary), BEd, GradDip Educational Studies (Music), MEd (The Arts), PhD Candidate

Lecturer, Creativity and the Arts

Ligia Pelosi has worked in primary schools as a classroom and LOTE teacher, but most extensively as a music specialist. She is a passionate advocate for the need to embed literacy learning within a creative arts framework in order to create a meaningful and authentic language experience for students.

Ligia's interests in education centre on literacy, creativity and narrative research methodologies. She is keen to explore creativity not only within the arts realm, but as a necessary catalyst for the ideas, skills and thinking processes needed to negotiate the rapidly-changing technological, economic and environmental factors of the 21st Century and beyond.
