INVITATION: Re-Imagining the Creative Arts Curriculum and the Creative Arts Canon Webinar Series

Dear Colleagues, 

I hope this email finds you well. This semester, at NUI Galway we are running a new webinar series: "Re-Imagining the Creative Arts Curriculum and the Creative Arts Canon". This is part of a wider project funded by the National Forum for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. You can learn more about the project here: https://www.teachingandlearning.ie/project/re-making-the-creative-arts-canon-re-imagining-the-creative-arts-curriculum/ 

Over the course of the semester, we will be inviting scholars, practitioners, and students across the Creative Arts nationally and internationally to discuss practical strategies for teaching and learning and how that effects professional practice in the Creative Arts. We invite you to join us in developing the conversation. 

I enclose the schedule for the first four webinars (below) and invite you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram for the roll out of the rest of our weekly schedule and to keep up to date with other project events.  

 The registration for all webinars will take place through Eventbrite. You can register for our first four events below.  

 If you have any questions regarding the webinars, please don’t hesitate to email me (Ciara.murphy@nuigalway.ie).  

 Please feel free to circulate these events widely.
