Mantle of the Expert Workshop North Island Tour July 2020
Imaginative Inquiry across the New Zealand Curriculum
Mantle of the Expert is a teaching approach developed from the work of celebrated educator Prof. Dorothy Heathcote. It combines drama, inquiry and the positioning of participants as ‘experts’ in fictional contexts to produce
meaningful, engaging, creative, authentic cross curricular learning experiences.
Participants learn collaboratively, build empathy, think critically and explore multiple points of view. Ideally suited to the NZ Curriculum, Mantle of the Expert is listed as an ‘effective pedagogy’ on the TKI website. These one-day workshops will be tailored to your needs: whether you’re a beginner looking for first ideas or a more experienced practitioner keen to deepen your skills and knowledge, you will leave inspired with new things to try in your classroom.
Workshops will run 8.30am–2.30pm
Lunch is included.
