How to maintain currency of your subject specialism

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by kimclarkson, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. Hi.
    I am a trainee teacher, coming to the end of my PgCE and am currently considering ways in which I can maintain currency within my subject specialism - Fashion Design. I would love to hear from anyone (even if your subject specialism is completely different to that of mine) with thoughts and ideas about this. Many thanks.

  3. Artsist teacher pedagogy ?? great place to start, being involved in a really good network also helps a lot
     
  4. Throughout my career in teaching I have always attended exhibitions and workshops to keep me in the loop. Most art teachers secretly strive to be doing their own work and simply do not get the time however make the time.. I was considering a Masters in Art after teaching for nearly 15 years and then I changed to Masters in special needs with options in digital art. This was mainly because I had more chance of getting work in that area. There is a over abundance of art teachers here. I have found going back to college as a digital immigrant really worth it and extremely demanding but interesting.
    As a fashion teacher there are plenty of opportunities within school to self promote and also use those gifted and talented budgets to make things happen. Make contacts, arrange trips to london fashion week or the clothes show .. if it still exists.
    get together with the languages department and take a (virtual trip to Paris) or a real one. shall I go on?
    Oh and make sure you have a fashion show each year ..

    Good luck
