Ways of Listening

KS1 & KS2

Teachers Continued Professional Development

Wednesday 22 February / 2.30-5pm / Free

This highly practical and hands on session is aimed at primary school teachers wishing to focus on developing creative ways to enable children to lead their own learning in the outdoors. The session will be facilitated by James Aldridge, a visual artist with a wealth of experience in heritage education, of running arts projects with schools and community groups, of delivering professional development for teachers and artists, and acting as a consultant through project development, evaluation, presenting and writing for publication.

During the session James will draw on his vast experience in creative ecology. Creative ecology is about learning through creative interaction with your local environment - your cultural and natural heritage. It focuses on using a dialogical, democratic approach to learning, encouraging participants to develop confidence in their own creativity and apply that to their learning, through direct interaction with, and reflection on their experiences within, their local natural and cultural environment.
