1) 'Teaching Playwriting'

    Wednesday 17 October 2007

     C4C Collaborating for Creativity CETL
      York St John University


'Teaching Playwriting' offers a stimulating and 
enjoyable opportunity to meet and work with a 
panel of distinguished playwrights. The panel 
includes Michelene Wandor (www.mwandor.co.uk), 
successful radio dramatist and editor of a number 
of Methuen's pioneering 'Plays by Women' 
collections, Naomi Wallace and Mike Kenny. 
Naomi's work has been produced in the United 
Kingdom, Europe and the United States. Her plays 
include 'One Flea Spare', 'In the Heart of 
America', 'Slaughter City', 'The Inland Sea' and 
'The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek'. Mike Kenny has 
written over fifty plays, mainly for children. 
Mike was the first recipient of The Children's 
Award in 2000 (UK) and winner of The Writers 
Guild's Best Children's Play (UK) in 1998.

Topics covered will include discussion of the 
principles and challenges of teaching 
playwriting, and examples of effective practical 
exercises for generating character, plot and 
dialogue.

The day conference is hosted by C4C 
(Collaborating for Creativity www.c4ccetl.ac.uk), 
York St John University's Centre for Excellence 
in Teaching and Learning, in central York.

The day will include a short presentation on 
C4C's 'Living Writers in the H.E. Curriculum' 
project.

2) 'Vocal Cords: connecting body and mind'

    Thursday 25 October 2007

    Studio Theatre
    Royal Northern College of Music, 124 Oxford Road, Manchester


As performing arts educators, how often do we 
consider the impact of our voices on those we 
teach or, indeed, if our own vocal production is 
healthy? Can the voice be used to 
greater/healthier effect in teaching and 
learning? How does the human voice connect us in 
group learning situations?

This day of workshops and seminars will give an 
overview of current research into the nature of 
the voice and its relationship to education and 
wellbeing. It will explore the human voice in 
terms of shared experience in (music) education, 
performance and healthcare. It will invite and 
stimulate discussion between performing arts 
professionals and scientists about the potential 
and meaning of the human voice in relation to 
bonding, learning and better being.

As the DfES has pledged 10 million over the 
course of 07/08 to develop a National Singing 
Programme through the Music Manifesto, this 
workshop offers a timely opportunity to review 
the role of the human voice from both educational 
and scientific perspectives.

Side effects of teaching and learning, even if 
they turn out to be very positive, are rarely 
acknowledged in education. This observation also 
applies to music, which has much to offer in 
terms of enhancing an individual's wellbeing and 
health. The aim of this event is to highlight the 
healthy side effects of music making, in general, 
and the value of singing, in particular, which 
too often escapes the notice of practitioners in 
the field of (music) education.

The participation of leading experts will provide 
state of the art information and prime examples 
of how artistic engagement at all levels may have 
a general impact on key issues particularly in an 
aging society facing increasing responsibilities 
towards using traditional resources for 
maintaining the health of every individual.

The event will also offer an opportunity to 
discuss issues of pedagogical interest and to 
network and make contacts with other academics, 
musicians and, more uniquely, scientists.

3)'Moving Matters: supporting disabled dance students in HE'

    Wednesday 21 November 2007

	Ellen Terry Arts and Media Centre
	Coventry University

This day will provide an opportunity for all 
those involved in delivering practical dance 
activities in HE to share successes, fears and 
aspirations in supporting disabled dance 
students. The focus will be principally on 
exploring strategies for supporting students with 
physical and sensory disabilities.

The aim of the day is to share good practice and 
different approaches to teaching and learning to 
enable teachers to develop expertise and 
confidence in this work. The day will include 
opportunities to observe and participate in 
practical dance activities, including tutor-led 
technique-based sessions as well as creative, 
choreographic workshops. Themes will include:

     * language and terminology in the delivery of practical classes
     * developing learning outcomes, assessment criteria
     * how learning is demonstrable and can be assessed
     * learning support; how to provide it and 
manage it within small teaching teams
     * entry onto courses and exit into the profession
     * disabled and non-disabled students working together

Contributions to the day are invited. These may 
be in a variety of forms including papers, 
practical activities and poster presentations.

The day will take place at Coventry University in 
the Ellen Terry Arts and Media Centre, home to 
the Performing Arts Department and the BA (Hons) 
Dance and Professional Practice course. The 
building has studio spaces as well as lecture 
theatres and seminar rooms, and is fully 
accessible.

The dance team at Coventry University has 
developed a wealth of experience and expertise in 
teaching and learning methodology within this 
field by working closely with disabled dance 
students on the course and their learning support 
assistants, and will share their experiences as 
part of the day. The event is a follow-up to the 
conference in March this year, held at Coventry 
University and hosted in conjunction with SCODHE 
and Independent Dance; 'Dance and Disability; 
Strategies for Inclusion in HE and Beyond'.

For further information about contributing a 
presentation at this event please contact: Ralph 
Brown, Projects Officer Tel: 01524 593545.
The deadline for proposals is 12 October 2006.
