Partnerships in Creative Learning

Partnerships in Creative Learning PROGRAMME

Partnerships in Creative Learning is an online course designed to help teachers, cultural educators and creative practitioners explore how to make the most of relationships within all creative learning settings.

The short course has been designed by lead educators, Paul Collard and Di-Fisher-Naylor and developed in consultation with the University of Nottingham’s School of Education. It is underpinned by the extensive programme of international research into creative learning undertaken by CCE over the years.

Who is Partnerships in Creative Learning for?

This online course is for teachers, educators and anyone working in a creative arts setting who wishes to undertake professional development at a Masters level. It is a structured and supervised course which aims to challenge you to work independently, reflect on your practice and apply your new learning into classroom settings.

You will have access to a formal online learning environment to support you wherever you are in the world and you can also connect informally with peers and the course tutor to share ideas, experience and advice.

The course is currently only available in English but can be translated on commission for your territory.
