New book by Sinéad Ní Ghuidhir to spark creativity in education

95 Cluiche Drámaíochta do mhúinteoirí agus do dhaltaí is a handbook for teachers and workshop facilitators that  is packed with fun games and clever strategies to get everyone moving and thinking creatively.

It’s got something for small groups, big groups, icebreakers and activities for groups that have been working together for a long time. You’ll find activities to pump up energy and others to bring about calm. Whether you’re in it for the laughs or deep thoughts, there’s a game for you.

It’s great for drama leaders, youth club organisers, and sports coaches. And if you’re a teacher, it’s a goldmine of ideas to make learning more exciting. You can tweak these games to fit any age group or subject. 

The author, Sinéad Ní Ghuidhir, teaches Professional Studies on the Irish-language Máistreacht Gairmiúil san Oidechas (MGO) and subject methodologies on the Professional Masters in Education (PME) programme and on the MGO in the University of Galway.

She is a supervisor for students on School Placement every year. Additionally, she teaches a module on the Masters in Education, directing students from that program as well. From time to time, she runs practical drama classes on the Bachelor of Arts in Maths & Education.

Ní Ghuidhir has television, drama, and acting experience. She also set up a peer assessment of the MGO and is interested in active teaching and learning methods, as well as in setting up innovative ways to teach in the classroom and across the curriculum.
