Keynote

Rachel Gartside, Royal Shakespeare Company education associate

Rachel Gartside, keynote presenter
Royal Shakespeare Company Educator, UK and International Workshop Leader
Keynote workshop - "Active and Dramatic Approaches for Engaged Learning"

Rachel has spent her career exploring the possibilities for learning through drama. She is an actor, director and experienced teacher of English and drama. After several years as a performer, she qualified and worked as a secondary English teacher, before moving back into the theatre as director of education at Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Co-author of the RSC Toolkit for Teachers and the Oxford University Press/RSC school Shakespeare series, she has been an education associate of the Royal Shakespeare Company for more than 10 years. Before that, she spent five years as a teacher/actor with The Playhouse, a resource for Birmingham schools. In this role, she designed learning across the primary curriculum, using drama as a teaching tool.  She has an MPhil in drama in education from Warwick University, where her research investigated changes in learning and teaching when drama is used to explore complex texts. She has been privileged to work with children aged 3-18 and their teachers in education systems across the world, and has seen many inspiring examples of how teaching through drama can lead to improved outcomes in writing, reading, speaking and listening.

Come and play a while! Stretch—or start developing—your creative muscles! This course is an arts-based collaborative and individual exploration of creativity, multimodality, and meaning-making. We will explore using a range of materials for meaning-making including traditional arts media (painting, drawing, sculpting, music, movement), digital media (photography, video, digital art apps), natural media (dirt, leaves, rocks, mud), and non-traditional media (shaving cream, cardboard, crayons, aluminum foil, tape). This course will challenge and surprise you. It will spark and support your personal development and inform your pedagogical and curricular skills and practices, as well as your own creative and artistic efforts. No previous artistic training, experience, or skill required (though artists and creative folks are welcome, too).
