Mantle of the Expert Teacher Network

The Mantle of the Expert Teacher Network is run by Dr. David Allen, and Iona Towler-Evans, who are Drama in Education practitioners, and Dr. Kate Katafiasz, Senior Lecturer in Drama at Newman University. 

The network connects Newman's drama students and trainee teachers up with locally, nationally and internationally recognised Drama in Education practitioners, such as Richard Kieran, Head Teacher at Woodrow first School in Redditch; Professor Brian Edmiston (Ohio State University); Dr. Cecily O'Neil, Associate artist with the Unicorn theatre, and visiting lecturer and examiner at several universities in the UK, the USA, and Australia.

We hold several training events each year - see our website for details. These are linked to the popular undergraduate Drama in Education module:
