Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Applications are now being invited from teachers of all stages and subject areas.

Immerse yourself in a creative environment for 5 days with a team of experienced creative educators, and like-minded peers, to inspire, challenge and support you to take creative risks within the curriculum. We invite you to focus on any subject area of relevance to you and your learners.

How do we support learners to take ownership of their own learning and thinking, in the context of CfE?

How do we develop the innate creativity of children and young people across the curriculum?

How could Scottish art support learning across the curriculum?

By the end of the week you will have found solutions to these problems and created your own work plan to deliver back in school.

The week will include:

  • Exclusive access to National Galleries Scotland collections and expertise
  • Creative provocations by Room 13 and Hidden Giants, including learner-centred techniques and case studies
  • Planning time and mentoring to help you design classroom activity that you will trial back in class
  • Active learning and team work
  • Lunch and refreshments provided

About You:

  • You should be willing to take risks and try new approaches
  • Committed to trialling approaches back in class, with support from one of our 'creative catalysts'
  • Willing to work with peers (we particularly welcome applications from more than one person per school; you may wish to apply with a fellow teacher / classroom assistant / parent council representative / janitor etc, with whom you would deliver work back in school)
  • Willing to participate in a showcase event, sharing your pupils’ works with a wider audience
  • Willing to attend a follow up meeting to review impact and identify opportunities to share the learning with the wider teaching community

Please apply by 4 June 2017. You will be notified by 6 June 2017 if you have been allocated a place.

Enquiries welcome.
