Mantle of the Expert – Antwerp

The Royal Conservatoire (AP University College Antwerp) & deSingel International Arts Campus present

Summer School Mantle of the Expert #2
Dorothy Heathcote’s dramatic-inquiry approach to teaching and learning

What if… your class becomes a team full of experts? This two-day training weekend is for teachers, school-leaders, classroom assistants, and teachers-in-training interested in using Mantle of the Expert across the Key Stages.

Run as a series of practice-based workshops, participants will be involved in a series of MoE contexts – experiencing ‘being inside the work’. They explore:
– how to build meaningful and engaging learning experiences for cross-curricular learning.
– how to use and apply Dorothy Heathcote’s dramatic conventions to develop immersive imaginary contexts.
– how to apply some of the more complex areas of the system, including building tension, sequencing and signing.
– methods for planning and assessment.

The weekend is led by Tim Taylor, a freelance teacher and author of “A Beginner’s Guide to Mantle of the Expert”.
