Workshop facilitator

Caroline Mortlock

Name of Workshop

Drawing out the power of texts

Who is it for

All teachers – but especially English, Humanities, PSHE

Brief synopsis of workshop :

Drawing, doodling and diagramming are brilliant ways to help students learn and understand concepts. The workshop will share a number of accessible ways in which you can make teaching, learning and revision more engaging and effective by unleashing the power of your own – and your students’ – visual sense.  I will be sharing some approaches I have used to support students’ revision of poetry, as well as materials produced in collaboration with our History department. I will focus on using hand drawn work in preference to internet-generated pictures.

What you will get out of it

Confidence with using more of your own visual approaches in your teaching.
