Learn how to teach any subject through creativity

In this hands-on workshop you will learn practical skills to teach any subject creatively by exploring the tried and tested techniques underpinned by the Sydney Opera House Creativity Framework, used by the artists and educators in the nationally recognised Creative Leadership in Learning Program.

You will experience firsthand five exercises that you will master and then adapt to your specific learning environments. The Sydney Opera House facilitators will ensure you are adept at delivering the specifics of each exercise. You will leave inspired by your own ideas and those of your colleagues as each member of the workshop adapts the exercises to serve their teaching needs.

Be prepared to have fun, laugh, think and take play very seriously as you apply these practical skills to subjects such as Science, Math, Geography, History, English and others.

These exercises and the supporting pedagogy support PBL and STEM projects, driving engagement, inquiry, curiosity and courage in learning.
