Strathclyde Visual Arts Studio - Portfolio Preparation Course

Description

The Strathclyde Visual Arts Studio is a new facility set up to support students interested in pursuing a career in Fine Art or Design.

 

The University of Strathclyde and Glasgow City Council Education Department are delighted to support this new course that builds on the success of The Tramway Visual Arts Studio that enabled students to gain acceptance to all of Scotland’s main art schools and other British institutions including Goldsmiths and The Royal College of Art.

 

Willie Nelson, Art & Design Manager for GCC Education Services, Ashlaigh Byrne, Associate Lecturer and Wilma Eaton, PGDE Lecturer in Art and Design, run the course.  It employs the unique approach, developed over many years, of teaching students a wide variety of skills, encouraging them to engage in an experimental and creative process enabling them to produce a highly individual and imaginative portfolio focussed on their specific area of interest.

 

The course is designed to concentrate on skills and creativity and will cover all of the main disciplinary areas including drawing and painting, printmaking, sculpture and environmental art as well as in depth support for jewellery, textiles, fashion communication design, architectural and interior design.  There will also be opportunities to consider more specialised areas including computer graphics and animation.

 

Students applying to higher education will have focussed support with expert guidance on upload processes, personal statements and advice on interview processes and techniques.

Emotion Coaching: moving from behaviour management to emotion regulation approaches in practice

Description

The refreshed narrative of CfE (Education Scotland, 2019), places children and young people at the heart of education, recognising relationships as fundamental to learning. This training session introduces an approach of Emotion Coaching (Gottman, 1996), which identifies that emotions matter to learning and provides examples of how this may be facilitated in practice. Grounded in theory relating to emotion regulation, Emotion Coaching offers a practical, empathic and brain-nurturing approach to supporting children’s emotions and subsequent behaviours.  This course is suitable for adults working with children who wish to move away from traditional discipline and behaviour management techniques towards an emotionally regulatory approach.

Introduction to Complex Additional Support Needs for Practitioners

Description

This short course gives an introduction to the field of Complex Additional Support Needs (CASN) within the current framework of Scottish Education. This course will consider Scottish policy and how it relates to this unique group of young people and the ways in which their CASN present themselves in the classroom context. An overview of considerations (both practical and theoretical) for practitioners will give a rounded picture of what it is like to practise in this field, followed by pedagogical considerations to ensure that young people with CASN are offered equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of education and realise their capabilities. Examples of the practical considerations that will be covered include, individuality, the importance of postural care, and communication.  These will be linked to underpinning theory and data where appropriate.

The importance of professional networking will be highlighted, and suggestions will be offered to assist with the creation of a professional network via a selection of signposted opportunities to take forward. In addition, approaches to teaching, learning and relationship building such as intensive interaction, sensology and technological supports will be introduced. Participants will be guided towards further information on all of these.

Inclusion and ASN: theory, policy and legislation in practice and pedagogy

Description

This short course is intended to address some of the key recommendations from this report and help participants build capacity and self-efficacy in working with ASN pupils by connecting theory, practice and policy. Participants will explore how to improve outcomes for children, families and wider communities (in accordance with the GIRFEC practice model) through participatory approaches, shifting from deficit models of ‘additional support needs’ towards strength/asset based practices. Respecting teachers as agents of change, participants will be encouraged to consider how they might utilise their own creative approaches to promote inclusion, equity and social justice in classrooms and other educational contexts.
