College One Educators: Microteaching

Words: Kate Dunstone

Students in College One’s Educator group work with the School of Art’s Outreach team to explore arts education through in-school placements, teaching training and workshop sessions. In two weeks they will be delivering full day workshops at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, introducing pupils to their own art practices and arts in higher education.

To prepare for these group workshops each student individually delivered their own ‘microteaching’ session, a 10 minute workshop about a creative subject. Microteaching subjects included paper cutting, Islamic geometric patterns, embroidery and lots more, and gave a great introduction to the teaching styles of students across the unit.
