INTEGRATIVE AND INTERACTIVE APPROACHES TO TEACHING THROUGH ART - COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

Introduction

This course is aimed at teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff as well as students and all those interested in innovative ways of teaching Art or using Art in education to stimulate engagment and critical thinking. Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.

 

Methodology

Methodology is based on theoretical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. Participants will learn about three corner stones of learning related to Art; learning about Art, learning for Art and learning through Art. The focus of the course will be in one part to learn how to use Art to encourage critical thingking and reflection and in the other part to learn relevant techniques of creating Art. This will be carried out through workshops, simulations and action learning. Some other tools used will consist of project work, museum visit, laboratory practice, reflection and evaluation.

 

Objectives

  • Learning how to teach the content of traditional school subjects through Art

  • Improving the participants’ pedagogical competences.

  • Understanding of the potential and opportunities of drawing and art activities for analysis and reflection.

  • Encouraging teachers to engage learners in practical learning mechanisms through a participative and creative approach.

  • Developing communication, collaboration, presentation, problem solving, negotiation, critical and creative thinking skills.

  • Enhancing understanding of the potential of art as an input for thinking critically.

  • Providing and exercising creative ideas for engaging students in innovative ways in the museum experience.

  • Learning new ways and developing dispositions for teaching and engaging learners with an eye to the role of Art.

  • Improving English fluency (official language of the course).

  • Promoting intercultural awareness.

  • Sharing experiences of art education from different organizations in order to help each of us to be more effective in our work.

  • Developing the online collaboration platform for preparation, dissemination and networking in order to develop future partnerships and projects.

  • Strengthening the European collaboration among people parntership projects in education in different contexts.

  • Providing insights into different education systems.

 

 

Preparation

After registration participants will receive pre-course questionnaire which will be used by the trainer to learn about participants’ teaching backgrounds and to assess their exact needs. Before the beginning of the course a basic reading list will be suggested to participants to prepare for the training. Participants will also be asked to publish a presentation about themselves, their professional context and their culture. The presentation will be available on the virtual collaboration platform. It will be used during the first meeting, but it will also be available online to the other participants so that they can have a preliminary knowledge of the group they are going to be part of. Participants will receive information about the country they are going to visit in order to prepare them for their cultural experience.

Follow up

 

After the course participants will be asked to share what they have learned with the rest of the staff in their schools. Since they will all join the virtual collaboration platform they will be able to further discuss and deepen the understanding of the themes of this course and therefore keep on learning. Moreover, they will be encouraged to share materials showing how they are using what they have learned in their everyday work in terms of ideas, photos, videos, lesson plans, assessment and self-assessment forms, etc. creating an open educational resource available to everyone else from the group. Thanks to the virtual collaboration platform they will all be networked which will provide greater opportunities to develop future partnerships and projects. Further books and articles to deepen the topic and contacts with some other practitioners all over Europe and in the world will be suggested by the trainer. The methods shared and explored and the bibliography given will allow the participants to complete and improve their educational path.

 

Certificate

 

Each participant will get a course attendance certificate and the Europass Mobility Document.

We also provide all the support with paperwork you might need for your Erasmus+ project documentation such as mobility agreement and regsitration letter.
