Pilot Testing

Testing the ECLN Core-Curriculum
The next step in the ECLN project was to test how the competences of the ECLN Core-Curriculum were used in practice by Artists in the context of Artist-Led Learning. The testing phase took place between April to September 2014 within 3 sub-groups of the ECLN partnership and with individual partners.The aims of this phase were to test the core-curriculum competences and to develop an ECLN Artist-Led Learning Activities Menu (ALLAM) – a compilation of all the examples from the individual partner countries and the 3 sub-group, thus demonstrating how the ECLN core-curriculum was used in Artist-Led Learning activities.

Partners were able to assist the process of compiling this document by recording their testing account using the ‘ECLN 6P Framework’.

ALLAM consisted of the following information:

a) The ECLN Core-Curriculum Artist-Led Learning Activities
This developed from testing results of all partners. This resource was then used by other Artists and Cultural Organisations to support and develop Artist-Led Learning activities; to build a portfolio of experience in Artist-Led learning; and to extend and develop individual and collective expertise in a range of Artist-Led Learning contexts.

b) PEOPLE and PURPOSES.
This demonstrated how specific elements of the ECLN Core-Curriculum were used to support Artist-Led Learning activities with different people and for different purposes. Partners described the people and the purpose of the Artist-Led Learning activities and then used questionnaires, blogging, video interviews, open questions etc. to evidence these.

c) PLANS and PLACES
This demonstrated how specific elements of the ECLN core curriculum were included in their plans for Artist-Led Learning activities and how these core curriculum items were adapted for specific places in which Artist-Led Learning activities occur. Partners described the plans and the places of the Artist-Led Learning activities and then used questionnaires, blogging, video interviews, open questions etc. to evidence these.

d) PROGRESS and POINTS OF VIEW
This demonstrated how specific elements of the ECLN core curriculum were evident or integrated in the progress made with the Artist-Led Learning activities and that these elements were observed, reported or experienced by contributors, participants or witnesses according to their own points of view. Partners described the people and the purpose of the Artist-Led Learning activities and then used questionnaires, blogging, video interviews, open questions etc. to evidence these.
