This two-day training is open to all artists interested in arts education and with a desire to further develop their pedagogical skills through practical training.
The first day is comprised of several modules, each with a particular focus. These include:
• lesson planning,
• fostering authentic engagement,
• developing techniques for classroom management,
• connecting learning to a specific text or arts experience, and
• creating ensemble-based exercises.
The second day begins with refining the participants’ plans and culminates in putting what they have created into action by facilitating workshops for children and young people.
Throughout, participants will work alongside one another and in concert with the invited youth to reflect on what makes an engaging workshop.
Both novice and experienced Artist Educators are welcome. This program will provide professional development for those working in school and community settings across arts disciplines, but with a focus on theatre.
This program is made possible through funding from the Ada Slaight Education Centre at YPT and the Ontario Arts Council.
Registration Deadline: January 19, 2018
Applications for bursaries and travel subsidies are due by January 11, 2018.
