APPENDIX : EDUCATIONAL INTENTIONS OF GENERAL EDUCATION
INTRODUCTION TO THE PROGRAM
The Fine Arts program reflects the constant change taking place in this domain and takes account
of the fact that students must satisfy the university-level admission requirements in arts and
educational sciences. It seeks to develop students’ creativity as well as their ability to produce a
work of art. It fosters a basic knowledge of fine arts and visual arts in general, as well as the
development of the skills needed for artistic creation.

Students’ creativity is developed by placing them in situations in which they are required to carry
out concrete activities. It is characterized by open-mindedness, curiosity, an interest in research,
an aesthetic sense and critical acumen and autonomy.

The Fine Arts program has been structured in accordance with the framework for the
development of pre-university programs of the Direction de l’enseignement collégial. This
framework:

       provides for genuine continuity between pre-university programs and university
       programs;
       favours a program-based approach;
       aims at an education focusing on the mastery of learning, using a “competency-based”
       approach;
       aims at an education that contributes to the development of the whole person.

This framework requires participation by partners from colleges and universities. Indeed, the
development of pre-university programs in terms of objectives and standards is carried out with
the cooperation of advisory committees composed of university representatives and academic
deans and teachers from colleges.

The Fine Arts program includes a component of general education that is common to all college
programs (16 2/3 credits), a component of general education that is specific to the program
(6 credits), a component of general education that is complementary to the specific program
component (4 credits) and a specific program component (32 credits).

This document has two parts. The first part presents an overview of the program, and the second
part describes the objectives and standards for general and specific education.
VOCABULARY USED

Program

A program is an integrated set of learning activities leading to the achievement of educational
objectives based on set standards (College Education Regulations, section 1).


Aim

The aim of pre-university programs is to prepare students for university through training
emphasizing the integration of general and specific education and the transfer of learning. The
aim must also reflect the requirements of an educational continuum oriented toward success in
university.


General goals

The general goals of pre-university programs guide the development of each program by
indicating outcomes that should result in consistency, integration and the transfer of learning. By
facilitating the coordination of the educational intent of general education with that of specific
education, the general goals clarify the aim of the program, which is for the students to acquire
skills essential for success in university.


Competencies

In pre-university education, competencies are based on knowledge, skills, attitudes and so on,
whose acquisition or mastery is necessary for success in specific fields in university.


Objectives

The objectives of pre-university programs determine the results expected of the students. It is by
attaining objectives and standards that the students acquire or master the competencies specific to
the college level that are necessary to pursue university studies in particular fields.

When pre-university programs are developed and presented by the Ministère, each objective is
formulated in terms of a competency and includes a statement of the competency and its
elements.
Statement of the competency

The statement of the competency, is the result of an analysis of the needs of general education
and those of university education.


Elements

The elements of the objective, formulated in terms of a competency, specify its essential
components. They include only what is necessary in order to understand and achieve the
competency.


Standard

The standard is the level of performance at which an objective is considered to be achieved
(College Education Regulations, section 1). It is by attaining objectives and standards that the
students acquire or master the competencies specific to the college level that are necessary to
pursue university studies in particular fields.


Performance criteria

The performance criteria define the requirements for recognition of the attainment of the
objective. All the criteria must be respected for the objective to be attained.


Learning activities

The aspects of learning activities which the minister can determine in whole or in part are the
field of studies, the discipline or disciplines, the course weighting, the number of contact hours,
the number of course credits, and such specific indications as are deemed essential.
PART ONE :

OVERVIEW
THE AIM OF THE PROGRAM
The college-level Fine Arts program is intended to give students a balanced education that
includes a general education component and a component specific to the fine arts. This will
enable the students to pursue university studies in arts and educational sciences.


GENERAL GOALS OF THE PROGRAM
The general goals of the program are to enable students to:
      integrate elements of visual language into an art work;
      demonstrate visual perception skills;
      demonstrate their capacity for expression and creativity;
      demonstrate the methodical skills needed to prepare and complete self-directed projects;
      demonstrate technical and technological skills associated with the fine arts;
      appreciate the main stylistic characteristics of works from different periods and cultures;
      integrate knowledge and learning into an independently produced work;
      situate the role and contribution of the visual artist in contemporary society.

Each college determines the ways in which the general goals of its program are taken into
consideration. And it can, at the implementation phase, also ensure that each subject it retains
reflects these goals by adopting their vocabulary and logic. Moreover, each course may
contribute to the attainment of one or more of these goals. It is essential that all of these goals be
taken into account in course development and that they become precise teaching and learning
objectives, particularly since they have been recognized as essential to the pursuit of university-
level studies in the fine arts and since their attainment is a condition for the granting of the
Diplôme d’études collégiales (diploma of college studies) in Fine Arts.


EXPLANATION OF THE GENERAL GOALS OF THE PROGRAM
Each general goal is explained as follows:

       To integrate elements of visual language into an art work.

   The integration of the main elements of visual language implies that the students are able to
   organize them in ways that take account of both simple and complex relationships, and that
   they can draw upon their power of suggestion to translate a creative intention into two- and
   three-dimensional works.




                                                  1
   To demonstrate visual perception skills.

The development of the students’ visual perception results from their capacity to improve on
their ability to apprehend the visual world, and to observe, memorize and interpret all aspects
of this reality.

   To demonstrate their capacity for expression and creativity.

The capacity for expression and creativity in the fine arts resides in the students’ ability to
translate an emotion or an idea into a visual work in a personal manner. This requires
imagination, an understanding of visual phenomena, an innovative treatment of conventions
and recourse to the students’ sensibility and aesthetic sense in the selection of themes or
visual stimuli.

   To demonstrate the methodical skills needed to prepare and complete self-directed
   projects.

The acquisition of methodical skills involves the students’ learning of different processes that
will enable them to organize their research and plan their work.

   To demonstrate technical and technological skills associated with the fine arts.

Technical and technological skills involve the students’ ability to execute an art work in a
dexterous and safe manner. This skill presupposes inventive exploration of the particularities
of the materials, tools and supports. Moreover, the students must have acquired a certain
degree of competency in the choice and use of software tools required for the creation of
images.

   To appreciate the main stylistic characteristics of works from different periods and
   cultures.

Appreciation of the main stylistic characteristics of works from different periods and cultures
fosters the students’ artistic development while adding to their stock of individual resources.
This implies refinement of their artistic perception and comparison of their practice with
those of artists from other periods and cultures, whose work the students study and critique.

   To integrate knowledge and learning into an independently produced work.

Creation in the fine arts is a process of integration based on the students’ capacity for
synthesis, analysis and critique. It requires that they take account of basic technical,
perceptual, cognitive and socioaffective knowledge. The competencies that the students have
acquired foster the creation of an independently produced work that involves research,
design, execution and distribution techniques. The students direct their critical judgment to
their own work, using appropriate terminology, and draw upon their experience to produce a
new work.


                                             2
       To situate the role and contribution of the visual artist in contemporary society.

   Determining the role of visual artists in contemporary society presupposes recognition of
   their commitment and of what they have done to enrich the culture. Students will learn to
   recognize the role of cultural institutions and groups in the production and distribution of art.


THE GOALS OF GENERAL EDUCATION
   In Québec, college is the next stage after the compulsory years of schooling (elementary and
   secondary school) during which students acquire basic knowledge and skills. It represents a
   major crossroads in that there is greater emphasis on the cultural aspect of academic subjects
   and leads students directly to the labour market or to university. The college system is
   responsive to current needs with respect to technical and pre-university education. It allows
   students to further their education without, however, narrowing their options, since they may
   switch from one type of program to the other. Finally, it provides students with a well-
   rounded, balanced education.

   Each college program features a general education component that is common to all
   programs, one that is adapted to the specific field of study, and one that is complementary.
   The goals of general education are to provide students with a common cultural core, to help
   them learn and develop generic skills, and to foster desirable attitudes. The desired outcomes
   are to educate students, to prepare them for their role as responsible members of society and
   to enable them to share in the common cultural heritage.

The common cultural core

Transmission of the common cultural core is aimed at allowing students to develop or acquire
the following:

   mastery of the language of instruction as a tool for communication and reflection, and
   mastery of the basic rules of rational thought, discourse and argumentation;
   the ability to communicate in other languages, primarily French or English;
   openness to the world and to cultural diversity;
   appreciation of the riches of their cultural heritage through familiarization with the
   accomplishments of human civilization;
   the ability to situate themselves with respect to the major schools of thought;
   the ability to think critically, independently and reflectively;
   personal and social ethics;
   mastery of knowledge relevant to the development of physical and intellectual well-being;
   awareness of the need to develop habits conducive to good health.




                                                3
Generic skills

General education allows students to acquire and develop the following generic skills:

   conceptualization, analysis and synthesis;
   coherent reasoning;
   critical judgment;
   articulate expression;
   the ability to apply what they have learned in analyzing situations;
   the ability to apply what they have learned in determining appropriate action;
   mastery of work methods;
   the ability to reflect on what they have learned.

Desirable attitudes

Cultural literacy and generic skills help students to acquire and develop the following attitudes:

   autonomy;
   a critical sense;
   awareness of their responsibilities toward themselves and others;
   openmindedness;
   creativity;
   openness to the world.

These outcomes apply to the three general education components, more specifically:

   General education common to all programs, which is allotted 16 2/3 credits distributed as
   follows:

      language of instruction and literature: 7 1/3 credits;
      humanities or philosophie: 4 1/3 credits;
      physical education: 3 credits;
      second language: 2 credits.

   General education adapted to programs, which introduces tasks or learning situations that are
   relevant to the field of study. The breakdown of credits, for a total of 6, is as follows:

      language of instruction and literature: 2 credits;
      humanities or philosophie: 2 credits;
      second language: 2 credits.




                                                 4
   Complementary general education, which allows students to complete their training with
   learning activities chosen with a view to achieving balance and complementarity in relation
   to the program-specific component. Students may choose courses for a total of 4 credits in
   the following areas:

      social sciences;
      science and technology;
      modern languages;
      mathematics literacy and computer science;
      art and aesthetics.

The general and the specific education components are designed to contribute to students’
education in an integrative fashion. In other words, the knowledge and skills transmitted in one
component are reinforced and, whenever possible, reapplied in the other.

Each college-level institution must provide such general education through learning activities
that are consistent with its educational project, within the framework of the stated outcomes, the
given subject areas and ministerial guidelines.

All the sets of objectives and standards in the general education component are developed in
keeping with the provisions of the College Education Regulations (R.S.Q., c. C-29, s. 18; 1993,
c. 25, s. 11). Revised Edition, August 1998.


EDUCATIONAL INTENTIONS OF GENERAL EDUCATION

The educational intentions explain in detail the contribution of each field of studies included in
the three components of general education (common to all programs, adapted to programmes or
complementary) to the achievement of the goals of general education. For the first two
components, the educational intentions include a general statement of the role of each field of
studies, the principles which underlie this role, the contribution of each field, in the form of
outcome objectives, to the achievement of the goals of general education in terms of knowledge,
abilities and attitudes, and an explanation of the sequence of objectives and standards.

The full text of the educational intentions may be found at the end of this document.
