Tate Modern Course

Context and Critical Research Skills

© Tate (Oli Cowling) 

Develop your pupils’ critical and contextual research skills by working with a range of creative approaches in the gallery

Tate and University of the Arts London come together for this day long course led by an artist and an education facilitator from UAL Awarding Body. This course is ideal for those delivering art and design qualifications, especially GCSE, AS and A Level Art and Design and BTEC. This course will help you maximise the teaching opportunities afforded by being with art in a gallery setting, with a focus on exam assessment processes.

You will explore Tate’s collection through a variety of practical activities. The day will start by exploring the value of practice-based enquiry as a strategy for supporting the development of ideas and a meaningful learning experience for students. Strategies include; entertaining the possibilities of not-knowing, encountering the unexpected, testing, failing and finding out.
