Drama Conference: The Power of Make Believe
In the new era of curriculum innovations it is clear the new standards will focus on the motivation and engagement of learners in the hands of gifted teachers.¬†The use of the active¬†imagination is a strategy open to all teachers and, with guidance, any teacher can develop their skills in enticing children to play with their imagination, become deeply committed to their work and therefore make faster and greater progress. There is a mass of recent, powerful data confirming that drama based inquiry¬†methods can lift standards faster and with a wider impact on all learners. With this new knowledge we aim to introduce drama based methods to as many teachers as possible as well as broadcast the networks that are working nationally and internationally.
This one-day conference run by nationally recognised practitioners will offer a range of practical workshops and key-note speeches which will take a Ľfresh look ľ at current trends, long-established skills and offer teachers a range of exciting teaching methods and materials.
Professor Jonothan Neelands:¬†National Teaching Fellow, Chair of Drama and Theatre Education in the Institute of Education and Chair of Creative Education in the Warwick Business School (WBS) at the University of Warwick and Julie Knock Headteacher of Pound Hill Infant School, Crawley.
