Spotlight on PG Cert and MEd Learning and Teaching in the Arts during UNESCO International Arts Education Week

We’re turning the spotlight on our PG Cert and Med Learning and Teaching in the Arts programmes during the UNESCO International Arts Education Week.

These courses are for a passionate and diverse community of educators, who’ll embark on a journey of professional enquiry and development, designed to enhance their practices as arts educators.

Check out our podcast series with leading practitioners and watch the video, below, which offers an insight into studying on part-time postgraduate Learning and Teaching courses.

You can also find out what it’s like to study for a Master’s degree from 7,000 miles away, in this Q&A with student Julie Nicholson.

Julie was based in Singapore while studying on the online MEd Learning and Teaching in the Arts programme.

The International Arts Education Week is an annual campaign from the World Alliance for Arts Education.

This year, the WAAE invites educators to ‘draw a line’, ‘to play a line’, ‘to make a line’, ‘to sing a line’, ‘to dance a line’ that reflects your aspirations, your aims for arts education in your community.

Reflect on your – ‘line in the sand’, ‘your bottom line’, ‘your end of the line’, and determine what needs to be done to maintain and grow arts education.
