MA Creative Arts in Education 2015/16 update

Spring may finally be in the air here in the UK and our MA Creative Arts in Education team is turning their attention to fine-tuning your course for next year.  We are excited about our new Policy and Practice module as well as honing relationships with local arts educators and organisations who are connected to the course.
This time of year finds Creative Arts students beginning work on their dissertations – this time next year this will hopefully be you! 
The CREATE Research Group is also providing provocative sessions which include our students – look out for information about an event at Plymouth University in May 2015, being co-hosted by CREATE, considering issues of creativity and democratic education, including the arts. These are issues that are likely to be debated across your course next year.
Please do keep an eye on our Facebook page:
We hope your preparations for joining us are going well too and if you need any advice or help, please do get in touch. 
Warm wishes

For offer holders 2015/16


Now that we have entered 2015, our Creative Arts team are excited to both be beginning work with this year’s students on their dissertations and to be turning our attention to preparing to welcome our new Creative Arts students later in the year. Our course has a long history of nurturing innovative thinking and practice within arts education for both home and international students and is closely connected to the work of the CREATE research group.  Please do keep an eye on this blog, and the MA Creative Arts Facebook group – there you can find out what is going on with this year’s students and lecturers.  This will give you a taste of the kinds of learning experiences that we are looking forward to offering you next year.

If you have any questions in preparation for registering with us and joining the course please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Kerry Chappell, the Creative Arts Specialism Leader.

To offer holders for 2014/15

Dear  offer holders

We are delighted that you have applied to Exeter and look forward to working with you. We are a small dedicated team of tutors who can use our arts teaching and research skills to create rich learning experiences for you. You will develop close working relationships with your fellow students on this course and also work alongside students on other arts education programmes.

At this point in the current year our students are beginning to plan their dissertations . They decide individually what they want to focus on and their specialist supervisor guides the research and writing process. We encourage student to find a topic and a research question which is relevant to their professional work and can develop their understanding and knowledge for the future.  Topics that students on the course have chosen in recent years include:

  • The creative potential of Music Technology in the music classroom;
  • The confidence of general primary  class teachers to teach the Arts;
  • The role of risk in teaching for creativity in Dance
  • The potential of museums and galleries to support  learning
  • Drama in early years education
  • Drama’s contribution to inclusion  in special educational needs
  • Collaborative creativity
