Forming and Sustaining ITT Partnerships in Museums, Galleries and Archives in a Time of Change Adam Goldwater Learning Manager Renaissance NE Susan Edgar Senior Lecturer - Northumbria University A&S Slide 2 The University Experience BA (Hons) Early Primary Education QTS Yr 1 EYFS Yr 2 KS1 Yr 3 EYFS/KS1 Early Years specialism Great emphasis on the use of the outdoors Cross Curricular Learning Across all programmes BA, PGCE and PGCE Flexible S Slide 3 From Tiny Acorns 2009-2010 MLA: 20 Yr 2 students focus on KS1 the then anticipated Rose Areas of Learning 2010-2011 MLA: 114 Yr 1 students focus EYFS Areas of Learning S Slide 4 The Regional Hub Learning Team-set up to deliver innovative education development and delivery across NE. It employs specialists in teaching and learning to support the development of museum services (both hub and non hub) to schools, family organisations and other learning professionals The Museum Experience A Slide 5 A Slide 6 Aims of the partnership Supporting new ITE entrants to understand the richness of learning opportunities within MLAs Reciprocal sharing of practice between students and host venues Impact on host staff understanding of their provision for young childrens learning Impact on students understanding of potential for young childrens learning in off site venues. S Slide 7 Common benefits For students: Innovative pedagogies experienced: informal, Constructivist, experiential, enquiry based, child interest. For partners: Reciprocity of ideas and knowledge of the curriculum and where it fits. S Slide 8 Successful Grant Application Partnership project/ Museums / B-Ed Students Theme Curriculum changes/ integrated learning/ outside of the classroom Placements 20 yr 2 students hosted by 16 venues/ 5 day placement in total/ 3 week project Year 2 - Integrated Learning Across the Early Primary Curriculum A Slide 9 A Slide 10 What the Learning Staff Thought It was a great opportunity the input has been invaluable. Very enjoyable/useful experience. Feel that our venue has gained a lot from being involved. It has opened my eyes to the broad learning objectives that can be covered by a trip to our venue. Lovely to spend time with someone enthusiastic and with fresh eyes. A Slide 11 What the Students Thought I feel a visit to a museum can fuel an entire Medium Term Plan. I feel this placement is invaluable in terms of being a student teacher. Ive learned the value of partnership. Gave huge insight and opportunity for thought about how venues can be used both in and out of school to enrich topics. A Slide 12 A Slide 13 114 students 3 day placements on a rotating plan Autumn 2010. Yr 3 MLA students brief Yr 1 Launch Day Placements Final MLA Exhibition of Work. Year 1 - Integrated Learning Across the Early Primary Curriculum S Slide 14 A Slide 15 EYFS themes A Slide 16 Wonderful Outcomes! Museum Placement Exhibition Effective partnerships Multimedia resources, planning, activities, trails, guide books, videos ppts S Slide 17 Shipley Art Gallery Information video S Slide 18 Tensions Experienced During This Ambitious Project... Snow! Outlying venues.... Initially shortfall of host venues: 20 anticipated ultimately 15 Yr 1 students needed a little more support initially. S Slide 19 Previously I would not think that museums could link into teaching; but by attending placements it has opened my eyes as to how museums are structured and how this can be linked to a variety of learning areas It has opened my eyes to the potential for learning at all levels in a museum. Student Evaluation S Slide 20 Is there anything you would change? Id have preferred the opportunity to do a week long placement The days could have been closer so we did not have to wait so long to return Go in the springtime rather than the winter! S Slide 21 What advice would you give next years trainees? Forget your memories of maybe, boring, cold school trips! Keep an open mind and you will be surprised at the wide range of fun and effective learning opportunities! S Slide 22 A Slide 23 Evaluation We feel the aims, although ambitious, have been realised: Far greater understanding of the possibilities by both sides. Rich resources to be placed on the museum websites to support schools and settings in their planning. Greater confidence in creative planning S Slide 24 Looking to the Future - Lasting Partnerships Continued collaboration with University Tutors and museum colleagues This years BA Yr 2 Option in May: a Museums and Galleries placement for 10 students Museum venues embedded into our programmes: PGCE Cross Curricular Week and across the BA Museum colleagues to continue input into programmes Students remaining in contact with venues Sustaining relationships with the University e.g. Ford and Etal Estates in Northumberland S Slide 25 Learningrealm.org.uk A Slide 26 Slideshow & Any Questions?
