Midland Actors Theatre and University College London present

DOROTHY HEATHCOTE NOW 2022

An International Conference

11-13 NOVEMBER 2022

at IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, London WC1H 0AL

Dorothy Heathcote was ahead of her time. Her work continues to provide models, inspiration, and challenges. Her vision of a revolution in the way we think about education seems even more urgent now than ever.

This conference will combine talks and practical workshops. It will explore the continuum between "process" and "product" in drama work. We will look at how we can work with theatre texts, and also draw inspiration from them in our teaching. There is an international line-up of presenters including Cecily O'Neill, Stig A. Eriksson, Maggie Hulson, Geoff Readman and Carmel O'Sullivan

HOW IT WILL WORK

On 11 NOV, there will be a one-day online event. There will be a range of speakers, discussing different aspects of Dorothy's work. On 12-13 NOV, there will be a two-day, in-person event at UCL in London, with a series of talks and practical workshops. You have two choices for the event:

1. BOOK FOR THE ONLINE EVENT ONLY (11 November)

ABOUT THIS WEBSITE

Dorothy outlined four “contexts” or “models” for active learning, using drama-based methods – with the aim of forging links between schooling and society. They are: drama used to explore people, circumstances and events; Mantle of the Expert; Rolling Role; and the Commission Model.

This website is dedicated to these four models. It provides teachers and practitioners with tools to use them in their own practice.

If you click on the following titles, you will find sections on:

The Core Principles of Dorothy's work, including: "now" time, "bondings" and "stewardship"

Drama for LearningThe "building blocks" of drama work, including "sign," "frame" and the "conventions"

A Guide to Mantle of the ExpertA guide to the Mantle system, including videos, and examples of schemes of work

 

The Commission ModelA practical guide to the Commission Model 

Rolling RoleA practical guide to the Rolling Role system 

This website is the home of the Mantle Network, which exists to support teachers and practitioners. It offers special events, projects in schools, and coaching and mentoring. Click here to find out more about the Network, and the projects we have done in schools. To contact us, click here
