COVID has caused a deep educational crisis in many ways and also given rise to the need for teacher training and learning wellbeing literacy. Wellbeing literacy is about an individual’s knowledge about wellbeing (Oades, et al, 2021). “In the same way that a person can be literate (i.e., have knowledge, be educated) in the arts, history or politics, a person can also be literate in wellbeing” (Waters and Higgins, 2022, p.23). However, while cultural heritage is a fundamental source of societal wellbeing (Gallou, 2022), how to engage family communities with cultural heritage has been focusing on conventional practices associating museums, exhibitions, festivals, etc. with teaching in-school classroom or out-school study tours. This workshop will be focusing on exploring PBL (Project Based Learning) pedagogy and using cases on vocal music teacher education and training to link PBL with families and social community engagement.
