MANTLE OF THE EXPERT: ADVANCED ONLINE CERTIFICATE COURSE

This course will provide guidance and training in Mantle of the Expert, a way of teaching the curriculum through drama. The course is aimed at teachers and practitioners (at primary or secondary level), who have some experience in using the system. It is a follow-up to OSD’s course, “An Introduction to Mantle of the Expert,” although it is not necessary to have taken the “introductory” course to take the “advanced” course.

Over 10 weekly sessions, the course will look at different aspects of the system including: teacher in role; teacher language; the language of MoE; drama conventions; working within timetabling and other constraints in school; and assessment. It will also offer guidance in planning, and individual and group support to participants in developing their own Mantle projects.

DATES: The course will begin Sunday 3rd March, with weekly sessions every Sunday at 9.30am-11.30am(UK time). There will be a couple of breaks for holidays (dates to be confirmed), and the course will end on 19th May.

There will be a maximum of 15 participants on the course.

There will be a Certificate of Attendance for participants who attend at least 8 full sessions.

Fee for the full course: £80.00 “Early Bird” rate (before 19 February); £95.00 after 19 Feb.

The Mantle of the Expert system was created by DOROTHY HEATHCOTE, who was a pioneer in the development of drama methods in teaching.

The course is led by DR. DAVID ALLEN, Artistic Director of Midland Actors Theatre, UK (MAT). David has published numerous articles and books on theatre and drama, including "Stanislavski for Beginners" and "Performing Chekhov." Dorothy advised the company on a number of Mantle projects for schools. David has also trained teachers in schools in Mantle, at both primary and secondary levels. He runs the Facebook group, The Commission Model of Teaching; the website www.mantlenetwork.com; and he is the convenor of the annual Dorothy Heathcote Now conference.
