Liz Macfarlane will open conference with an invitation to reclaim our art galleries and re-connect our learners with the works within. Liz makes the case for the off-site visit as an opportunity to cross the threshold into spaces of awe and wonder - an essential foundation for learning in art, craft and design.
Ofsted HMI for Art and Design, Jennifer Gibbs will share her thinking on what should be prioritised in a curriculum to support creativity and pupil learning. She will explore concepts of knowledge, memory and expertise in the Art and Design curriculum.
Dr Eitan Buchalter will present his work to develop an evidence-based method (Nurturing Creative Thinking) that uses the art curriculum to empower teachers to look after and grow their students’ creative abilities.
We will be joined by CEO and Creative Director of Access Art, Paula Briggs for a discussion chaired by Liz Mc Farlane. Liz will ask the panel to respond to questions from NSEAD members on the theme 'knowledge, practice and the power of process – should the Art and Design curriculum be a vehicle for well-being and personal development?’
We hope all participants enjoy the presentation, panels and discussions. Our aim is to be an accessible organisation, to build conversations to be learned and learning and we hope that by taking our national conference online, it will help and not hinder debate.We will also share a feedback survey with participants next week – please look out for this. Every attempt will be made to make the event accessible to many but we know that technology is not always reliable – with regret we cannot take any responsibility for any network or software outages. We very much hope that if you have booked a ticket you are able to attend and you enjoy taking part – we look forward to seeing you there.
