Continuous thematic training session for circus arts professors - INTENTS
The objective of the INTENTS continuous training sessions is to contribute to the creation of a new programme for continuous training for circus arts professors, and to the development of innovative educational tools for initial training (students) and continuous training (professors in circus arts).
The INTENTS continuous training sessions are the result of FEDEC’s work on continuous training engineering since 2005 (European educational exchanges - EPE in 2005-2007 and pilot training sessions in 2011 and 2012).
The INTENTS continuous training sessions have been developed with an innovative approach: interdisciplinary, thematic, interprofessional, international and intergenerational. By adopting an innovative interdisciplinary approach, the FEDEC hopes to develop new educational and didactic methodologies for a practical application in teaching a transversal topic.
With this project, the FEDEC aims to:
The first training session will take place in London from 13 until 17 April 2014. This training will focus on Occupying Space through objects manipulation. The call for participants is already available on the Members' Area (section 2.2.2).
The participants will have to look beyond the sharing of practice between professionals to showcase the artistic and educational innovations connected to the discipline, for the sake of developing the professional competencies of the teaching staff as well as the competencies of the students they are teaching. Transversal themes will enrich the teaching of each discipline using techniques of transmission and creation from other disciplines.
