Dè an t-slighe air adhart an dèidh a’ phrògraim seo?

Bithear a’ cleachdadh soirbheachaidh san teisteanas seo mar fhianais den dealas a th’ agad do dh’ionnsachadh agus teagasg anns na h-Ealainean Gàidhlig.

What do participants say?

“I found the course to be transformational in a number of ways. Not just in giving you the tools to be a better teacher, but in my work as a writer. The way the course is designed lets you explore what you are interested in, it helps you find your feet as a teacher but also helps you learn about yourself, your work, your path ahead – sometimes unexpected aspects of yourself. I wasn’t sure about doing it initially, would it help my work? Would I get work out of it? The answer is yes to both – it’s turned out to be one of the most important things I’ve done in my career.”

Dè chanas oileanaich a rinn an cùrsa cheana?

“Nam bheachd fhèin, thàinig cruth-atharrachadh air mo shlighe-obrach ann an iomadh dòigh. Dh’ionnsaich mi na sgilean a leig leam a bhith nas fheàrr mar thidsear agus leasaich mi m’ obair sgrìobhaidh cuideachd. Tha cruth a’ chùrsa a’ leigeil leat na cuspairean anns a bheil ùidh agad a rannsachadh agus sgilean teagaisg ionnsachadh. Bidh thu ag ionnsachadh mu do dheidhinn fhèin cuideachd, mun obair agad, mun t-slighe air adhart – uaireannan mu rudan mu do dheidhinn ris nach bitheadh tu an dùil idir. Bha mi eadar dà bharail an toiseach an dèanainn an cùrsa gus nach dèanainn, am biodh e feumail nam chuid obrach? ‘S e a bhitheadh – tha e air aon de na rudan a b’ chudromaiche a rinn mi a-riamh nam shlighe-obrach.”

Programme Outline

 

What would I study and when?

Year one
In the first module, ‘Approaches to Critical Artistry’, you will develop critical and scholarly reflection by critically exploring your learning priorities as both a Gaelic artist and teacher. In the ‘Teaching Artist’ module, you will have the opportunity to critically explore your practice in light of the policies and learning theories that are relevant to your teaching context. You will deliver and evaluate two short teaching sessions designed to meet the needs of your learners.

Years one and two

‘Context and Culture (Gaelic Arts)’* spans years one and two. In this module, you will have the opportunity to explore your Gaelic arts discipline(s) over a series of self-directed learning experiences. Your subject mentor will support you in identifying the experiences that will address your learning needs as an artist working within the Gaelic Arts sector, such as professional placements, projects, masterclasses, RCS choice modules, placements in Sabhal Mor Ostaig in Skye.

Year two
In ‘Project (PG Cert)’ you will design, deliver and evaluate a practice-based research project that will enhance the development of identified learners in your Gaelic Arts context.

Year three
In the ‘Final Project’ module you will design your own final project to meet your educational needs and professional aspirations e.g. curriculum documentation, a strategic plan, a dissertation, a performance, workshops or the design and delivery of new dance classes. This self-generated project might involve creative and collaborative partnership, or be a solo project. You must design a mechanism for disseminating your project findings within the Gaelic Arts sector.

How would I study this programme?

The programme is delivered part-time over a three-year period, through a combination of online workshops, weekend seminars, independent learning, and work-based learning within your own professional context. From the outset, you will engage in a multidisciplinary arts education community of practice with students across all of the PG Learning and Teaching programmes. Within your specific pathway, you will join an Action Learning Set to share in peer support. A personal supervisor will work with you throughout your studies and you will engage with a subject mentor and professional mentor as you progress through the programme.
