Applications are still being accepted for the Postgraduate Certificate in Arts in Healthcare Settings at NUI Maynooth Kilkenny Campus. The course aims to provide students with an understanding of the key theories that inform teaching and learning in adulthood; to provide them with the knowledge and skills to work creatively with groups; to give them the capacity to critically reflect on their practice in the field of arts and health and to give them an understanding of what ‘arts and health’ is and the role of the arts in healthcare, both theoretical and practical.
The course is delivered in association with the National Centre for Arts and Health at Tallaght Hospital. There are four modules in this course: Group Work in Adult and Community Education, Teaching and Learning in Adult and Community Education, Arts in Healthcare Settings and The Reflective Practitioner.
