Juilliard PD 2019 attendees

BISW Hosts the Regional Juilliard Professional Development

BISW opened its doors to more than 30 Nord Anglia teachers and Juilliard facilitators for a weekend of professional development in music and dance as part of the collaboration between Nord Anglia and Juilliard.

The PD is a core part of the collaboration with Juilliard and brings together teachers and Juilliard staff to work together and reflect on good practice and exciting curriculum development.

Teachers were invited to watch demonstration lessons taken from the Juilliard creative classroom and reflect about the approach and what good teaching and learning is.

Much of the time was spent on thinking and exploring good teaching practice in general- “how do we use questions successfully in our classroom?”, “how  do we find that magic moment for students and develop it?," questions that all teachers can ask themselves regardless of subject.

They also spent time exploring the Performing Arts Learner Ambitions - a set of assessment criteria created by NAE teachers and Juilliard. These are very important to our performing arts teams as they are unique to NAE and really highlight the beliefs and importance of the transferable skills performing arts exposes our students to.

The conference even provide time for teachers to explore their own love of the arts and experience the Juilliard creative classroom as students would!

Having opportunities for our performing arts staff to reflect and develop good practice, make bonds across schools and develop their teaching artistry is a unique, exciting part of being a teacher with NAE and collaborating with Juilliard. It's one that not only has a deep impact on the teacher but also the community around them.

BISW was happy to have been the host campus for this program.
