Teachers Training Course | Premium Virtual Edition

From the 7th to the 9th of July, 2020, the EACWP launches a Premium Virtual Edition of its European Course for Teachers of Creative Writing. Worldwide participants are welcome to join us. Enrollments are already open until July, 6th, 2020

This Premium Virtual Edition of our Teachers Training Course will comprise three different masterclasses that will take place on Tuesday, 7th, Wednesday, 8th and Thursday, 9th of July from 18.00 to 20.00 (CET).

This year, Frank Tazelaar (The Netherlands), Daniel Soukup (Czech Republic) and Risto Ahti (Findland) are our three European teachers leading the different sessions. In this occasion, we have made extensive the invitation to this selection of our most expert European teachers that, for logistic reasons, would be more difficult, perhaps, to bring on spot for a week to Belgium.

As in the regular format of our Teachers Training Course, over these sessions, our three EACWP teachers will share their different methodologies, approaches and experiences in the teaching of creative writing by offering a so called “auteur workshop” by performing and explaining their own ars pedagogica and didactics from both a theoretical and practical approach. All the working sessions will be focused on pedagogical training and guidelines to empower the participants to develop their own teaching interests and new possibilities.

These are the three masterclasses of this Premium Virtual Edition 2020:

  • Tuesday, 7th: Understanding your students’ poetics / Frank Tazelaar (ArtEZ / The Nethelands)
  • Wedenesday 8th: How to work with literary tradition in a CW class / Daniel Soukup (Czech Republic)
  • Thursday 9th: How to protect, stregthen and empower self-expression / Risto Ahti (Oriveden Opisto / Finland)

The sessions will be celebrated through Zoom.
