Reflecting on Learning and Teaching in the Performing Arts (RLTPA)
Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance Welcomes you to its Open Educational Resource: Reflecting on Learning and Teaching in the Performing Arts (RLTPA)
Overview: How to enjoy and benefit from this resource
The Open Educational Resource is intended to support and enhance the professional practice of those involved in Learning and Teaching in the Performing Arts in Higher Education. It is also intended to support students on accredited United Kingdom programmes of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and teachers who wish individually to apply for the Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. We hope that you will enjoy learning from others in your field through active engagement with the resources and we welcome you to Rose Bruford College.
As you enter the site you will find eight study areas. Together these areas cover the major topics of study on accredited Learning and Teaching programmes. As you engage with all eight study areas you will have opportunities to build a portfolio of evidence, a Reflective Portfolio, to meet the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) necessary to apply for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. The UK PSF and how its values, knowledge and activities relate to this resource is explained in the two documents below. In addition to these two documents, we have noted at the end of each Study Area the UKPSF Activities, Core Professional Values and Core Knowledge Areas that are related to the material in order to help you organise and cross reference your portfolio. In entering each study area you are encouraged to respond to the material you encounter, to reflect on how it relates to your own practice and to note your thoughts, recording them in writing, sound or visual means as a part of your Reflective Portfolio.
The Four Rooms
This resource has been designed with contemporary research on learning styles in mind. You will find reference to this research in the first study area of the resource. As you enter each area you will be introduced to the study topic of the area and be invited to enter its four rooms. Each room contains a particular type of resource which corresponds to a particular learning style. You can select material quickly depending on your preferred learning style, your mood or the time you have available.
