Launching on 7 February, UAL Awarding Body are pleased to announce the release of a new weekly podcast, Teach Inspire Create. Building on a successful programme of online events for creative educators, the podcast will delve into 3 main themes of teaching, inspiring and creating.

Rob Gildon (speaking and clicking fingers):

‘So what I would probably do is just going around the room and just say names, so it would be Rob, Matt and then, just getting a pulse going..

Rob, Matt, Rob.. whatever.. and then maybe you'll add

..and Rob.. Matt..’ and then you're starting sort of asking and then everyone starts going, oh!, your toe wasn't tapping!’

Matt Moseley:

Montage of speakers:

‘So back to that moral thing about 'Oh isn't advertising bad?'

No, it's not. It's the best way to communicate. ‘

‘It's often about meeting the right people at the right time’

Matt Moseley:

..and how these can influence diverse ways of teaching.

Montage of speakers:

(speaker 1)

‘When I'm doing assessment early on in the process I ask them to draw their ideal island and that tells me a lot about their...’

(speaker 2)

‘All of these things representation, creativity, identity, arts, it all sounds very disparate, but it does centre in terms of creation.’

Matt Moseley:

Through these stimulating conversations, I hope you find some inspiration that will ignite your inner student.

Montage of speakers:

(speaker 1)

‘Well if mother earth was here, sat around the table what would she have to say about your fashion design?’

(speaker 2)

‘It would be nice to do a drawing a day for a week if they could on cheap paper..’

(speaker 3)

‘Do the odd day where it is 100% quantity over quality.’
