Fighting Words and Dublin City University - Partnership Extended!
Fighting Words is delighted to sign a new Memorandum of Understanding with Dublin City University in March 2022, to extend our teacher education and research collaboration with the support of the Institute of Education.
Since 2018, Fighting Words has contributed to existing courses and modules as part of the primary and post-primary teacher education programme. We have recently launched the exciting new online module Creativity and Creative Writing in Education.
In parallel, our collaboration also focuses on researching and documenting the experience and evidence emerging from the application of the Fighting Words creative education methodologies.
We are looking forward to continuing and expanding this important work to build understanding of the importance and benefits of creativity for learners and to strengthen confidence and interest in creative engagement and creative writing.
