NAFA TEACHING WORKSHOP 2017 - CULTIVATING THE SPIRIT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Description

* Update - Please register for Teaching Workshop 2017 via this link instead


The Teaching Workshop is an annual event organised by NAFA’s academic staff for all educators involved in the arts within and outside of NAFA. The annual workshops aim to explore curriculum design and delivery that promote deep and engaged learning in our classrooms, to enable collaboration among educators and art practitioners, as well as to inspire on-going dialogue and learning where we embrace change and openness in our teaching practice.


This year’s theme is Cultivating the Spirit of Entrepreneurship. In the morning session (Programme A), we are privileged to have 5 speakers who will share with us their thoughts on what entrepreneurship means in the arts, culture and design industries and whether entrepreneurship can be taught in a school.


In the afternoon session (Programme B), students from all 8 programmes will be presenting their insights into the topic of entrepreneurship and how NAFA can cultivate the spirit of entrepreneurship amongst its students. Following that, we will have a lecturer’s workshop facilitated by lecturers from all 3 schools. In this lecturer’s workshop, we will discuss topics such as the importance of entrepreneurship and brainstorm ideas of how entrepreneurship can be integrated into the curriculum.


It is our hope that through this one-day event, we can start to create authentic and rich conversations within and outside NAFA on the meaning, purpose, and actions needed to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs in the arts, culture and design industries.

All academic colleagues are required to attend Programme A.

Students’ Presentations: Learning Entrepreneurship

Venue: NAFA Studio Theatre

Over 4 weeks, 17 students from the 3 different schools and various programmes underwent mentoring to discover what the concept of ‘entrepreneurship’ means to them. Students explored the concept using the ‘5Ws1H’ method to articulate how entrepreneurship can be linked to their learning at NAFA. In their presentations, students will deconstruct the concept and give lecturers an idea of what and how they want to learn about entrepreneurship while studying at NAFA. They will also relay some ideas and examples of how entrepreneurship is taught or learnt at other tertiary institutions.

Lecturers’ Workshop: Cultivating the Spirit of Entrepreneurship

Venue: Rooms C5-17, C6-02 and C7-12

In this workshop, lecturers and students will be divided into 3 groups, to explore further how NAFA can help students meet learning outcomes with regard to entrepreneurship. The brainstorm session will enable lecturers to formulate ways in which students will find beneficial to help them pick up skills and knowledge related to entrepreneurship. The session will also try to enable everyone to think of new platforms in which entrepreneurial opportunities can be manifested in and around campus. All ideas generated at this workshop will be handed to the Entrepreneurship @ NAFA Executive Committee for its consideration.
