Pedagogy, Practice and Partnership: the future for dance education

Saturday 22 November 2014 / Birmingham Ormiston Academy


Making a difference to dance education through research

This year’s NDTA conference will focus on delivering high quality dance practice in and beyond the curriculum. Through keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops and seminars the day offers a stimulating professional development opportunity to support and inspire dance teachers working at all levels.

In collaboration with DanceHE, Pedagogy, Practice and Partnership will again feature research by and for dance teachers. Focusing upon or related to children and young people’s dance education we invite proposals for research led presentations that address (but are not limited to) the following areas:

• Approaching dance education pedagogy, including through partnership

• Dynamics of dance learning

• Dance education research methodologies

• Professional development for dance teachers

We hope the sessions will represent a mix of researchers at different points in their careers. So whether you are researching at M level, as part of a CPD initiative, a PhD, an early career researcher or experienced researcher we would like to hear from you.

Presentations will be 30 minutes within one of two research sessions followed by time for questions and debate. The two sessions will be facilitated by Dr Kerry Chappell and Professor Vida Midgelow.
