The punchdrunk learning collective
The Punchdrunk Learning Collective is an ambitious three year project exploring the application of Punchdrunk Enrichment practice in school settings. Over three years, teachers and schools will meet regularly, work with Punchdrunk practitioners to deliver new projects, learn and apply principles in their school and share knowledge with peers and the wider sector.
Teachers and schools will be taken on a journey with the ambition to equip them to become experts in immersive learning techniques and approaches. The project will explore what immersive teaching is, how it can be sustainably embedded in school life and will look further at the impact on teachers’ practice and pupil engagement and achievements. The project will be developed in partnership with Dr Angela Colvert, Senior Lecturer in English Education at the University of Roehampton who will be exploring the role of the teacher as creative practitioner, building on her research into models of immersive play in Punchdrunk’s practice.
We want to help teachers become immersive teaching experts, with the skills and ability to independently plan and create their own work.
Our techniques offer engaging and transformative experiences for pupils, making them more receptive, motivated, open and engaged with their learning. Working directly with schools over 3 years will allow for the development of deep longitudinal engagement, and equip teachers with a wealth of new creative approaches for their students.
There will be a number of opportunities for teachers outside of the network to take part in CPD and training sessions, so if you're interested, please email email@example.com or stay tuned for future updates.
