CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN | Deadline 9 April
CAN YOU HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF PERFORMING ARTS EDUCATION?
Do you have a new idea or approach? A new take on an educational trend? Or a report on the very latest research?
Maybe you have an inspirational story that will motivate our delegates and re-invigorate their teaching? Or a set of warm-up exercises and ice-breakers that will engage even the most challenging of students…
If you have an idea or a story you can share with our delegates – across both music and/or drama – then we’d love to hear from you!
Please take a look through our call for papers guidelines below, and if you’d like to share a session idea, please complete the form at the bottom of the page. We look forward to reading your submission!
SEMINAR SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
At the core of the show is our CPD programme. Our aim is to inspire and motivate our delegates, reinvigorating their teaching practice and keeping them informed of the changing landscape of performing arts education.
We are looking for stimulating, thought-provoking sessions with clear ‘take home’ messages and learning objectives, covering:
- Hands-on, practical workshops, with plenty of great warm-up activities and ideas for performing, improvising, composing/devising and appraising in the classroom
- Music/performing arts technology; how best to utilise this in the classroom, studio and on the stage
- Education psychology
- Curriculum & exam preparation
- New educational trends and approaches from around the world
- Examples of best practice; peer-to-peer learning from leading performing arts departments, teaching studios, ensembles, clubs and organisations internationally
- SEND and inclusion
- Politics, policy and funding; debates and panel discussions on the challenges ahead
Please note that seminars should not be used purely as a promotional tool to advertise products and services. Any submissions deemed to be of this nature will be rejected by the content committee.
We are looking for engaging speakers with a strong, confident presentation style. Speakers should be experts within their chosen field and comfortable taking audience questions. We welcome applications from practising teachers, heads of department etc as part of our peer-to-peer and best practice programme stream. Please note that as the Expo is free for delegates to attend, unfortunately we are unable to offer a speaker fee or cover expenses.
Seminar slots will last between 30-45 minutes (including any Q&As), so please ensure you plan your session accordingly.
Please submit a photo of all speakers (hi-res, min 300dpi) to email@example.com This is for inclusion in our Show Guide (if successful).
The deadline for receipt of submissions is 9 April 2017.
