This course introduces participants into different ways of understanding and teaching creativity and arts, taking the best of the positive impact of Audio-visual production and art-related activities on their wellbeing.
During the first week the course will take a multidisciplinary approach to art and creativity. The course will analyse the creative process from a broader perspective, considering how creativity works at different ages and in different contexts. Participants will be involved in an active learning process, also focusing on personal experience and self-expression, combining cognitive and emotional elements to make the learning process easier and ensure long-lasting retention of the new knowledge.
During the second week, participants will focus on how audio-visual tools can support students and teachers’ involvement: participants will actively learn how to create and adapt audio-visual resources (photos, movies, music clips, documentaries, new videos…) to teach their subjects in a more effective way. All this helps students to absorb and retain ideas, and in the development of communicative, critical, social and creative skills.
Guided city tours and 1 full day cultural excursion (usually on Saturday) will also be part of the programme.
