Presenter: Martin Matthews

Creativity in the professional lives of English teachers: voices through found poetry

Do secondary school English teachers engage in creative acts in their lessons? What barriers might exist to creativity in the English teaching space? With reference to a recent doctoral study, this presentation will reflect on the views of a group of English teachers in regard to the place of creativity in their lives. Their voices will be presented and discussed through the medium of found poetry that may help provide new insights into their experiences of creativity in their professional lives. The presentation will also contain reflections on the spaces in which English teachers work and how those places help to create, mould and normalise identities. Although the presentation will focus on the voices of English teachers, the ideas explored could resonate more broadly. Questions will be posed about what freedoms teachers may or may not have and consider whether identities can be considered anew allowing for greater creative freedoms to emerge.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
