19SU16 Teach for Tomorrow: Exploring arts-based approaches to development education

A course for primary teachers exploring arts-based approaches to development education

This course will help participants to engage imaginatively with emerging global issues. Through hands-on arts-based activities, it will examine the political, policy and ethical context for development education in Ireland. A combination of appropriate pedagogical approaches and fun creative exercises will enable teachers to bring global issues to life in the classroom. They will also reflect on their own rights and responsibilities as global citizens and consider the ‘teacher stance’ they might adopt when exploring controversial issues with children. 

The following global issues will be covered for a variety of arts-based methodologies including:

  • Creative writing
  • Storytelling and Poetry  
  • Drama and Simulation 

Topics such as:

  • Asylum, migration and refugees
  • Climate change, climate justice and climate action
  • Action, global citizenship and democracy
  • Global solidarity, human rights and interdependence

Methodologies will include research skills, handling sensitive topics, developing a toolkit, debate and speech writing.

This course is suitable for:

·         Primary teachers of 2nd- 6th class, with a particular emphasis on senior classes

·         Teachers interested in infusing innovative arts-based methodologies into teaching and learning

·         Teachers interested in global education and how to approach ‘difficult knowledge’ in the classroom
