with David Chapple
For: all teachers/educators
Focus area: using creative writing techniques across the curriculum
We often hear that storytelling and creativity are two of the most important skills for young people to learn, and they are also crucial skills for all teachers. In this specialised workshop, you will learn to utilise the power of creative writing techniques across the whole curriculum, and to tell the story of your discipline in a way that engages and excites even the most disengaged students.
