The module will promote a questioning and analytical approach to the issues that affect small-group coaching, learning and assessment. In particular, participants will consider the roles and responsibilities of being an ensemble coach; eg providing inspiration, providing musical direction, setting the curriculum, creating performance opportunities, dealing with interpersonal problems, providing feedback.

The module aims to raise awareness of the wider benefits of alternatives to the master-apprentice model, eg autonomous learning, deep learning and intrinsic motivation on the part of the students, professional satisfaction and development on the part of the teacher, fostering creative communities of practice at the institutional level.

The module is taught through a 2-day workshop, taking place on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1

May 2012 at our central London campus. This may be taken as a stand-alone short course or as part of one of the Institute of Education's masters programmes, such as MA Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education, and MA Music Education.
