Music-ITE: Using a composing workshop as an opportunity to explore pedagogy
'Understanding music through composing' was a workshop run for trainee music teachers and music subject mentors at Birmingham City University on 29th January 2009. As shown on the Music-ITE website, the aim of this workshop was: To identify pedagogy that will help young people to think creatively through music and to understand how composers think. The workshop was based on the findings from a school based composing project with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG).

Mentoring, observation and interviews are three important strategies in developing student teachers. This unit, which gives a flavour of the Open University's flexible PGCE course, introduces student–teacher centred strategies both inside and outside of the classroom involving mentors, pupils, tutors and others to develop student teachers' professional skills and understanding.

1.4 The artist's ‘Life’ as a historical source
Accounts of Caravaggio's life are filled with suggestions of murder and intrigue. But does knowing more about this dark artist's experiences help us to interpret his art? Or does understanding his motivations cloud their true meaning? This unit explores the biographical monograph, one of the most common forms of art history writing.

21M.732 Costume Design for the Theater (MIT)
Intermediate workshop designed for students who have a basic understanding of the principles of theatrical design and who want a more intensive study of costume design and the psychology of clothing. Students develop designs that emerge through a process of character analysis, based on the script and directorial concept. Period research, design, and rendering skills are fostered through practical exercises. Instruction in basic costume construction, including drafting and draping, provide tools
