The Art of Meandering - Corrie Nagtegaal
The Art of Meandering is based on five aspects, which are seen nationally as the basic competence for higher vocational (art) teachers. These are translated into a learning outcomes classification, which forms the basis for the twelve considerations and is further refined in practice by the dialogue with students and colleagues. The chapter Foundations of Meandering describes the guiding viewpoints and related design principles, along with the design history and genesis.
The method is primarily intended for teachers in higher vocational (art) education, individually or as a team. It can also be used in training or professionalisation in other (vocational) education. The considerations offer teams the opportunity to conduct a hands-on mutual 'artistic and/or creative professional conversation' about education. The twelve considerations continually require choices to be made and actions to be carried out on the basis of various teaching roles within the context of courses, possible professional fields and social developments.
This method is a co-creation by trainers and participants from the HKU Basic Qualification in Didactic Skills course. The approach was written out by Corrie Nagtegaal. Having a heart for learning, a background in language and an interest in the opportunities for (digital) language-language, visual language, music and dance, she was delighted to work with artists within and outside HKU. She is convinced that teachers can make the difference and initially wrote this method for them. Hopefully, The Art of Meandering will inspire (art) teachers to teach well. In the designing of this publication, Corrie was assisted by HKU lecturer and designer Albert Hennipman.
