INTRODUCTION
Among the many forms of literary expression, one which has enjoyed varying fortunes according to the time and the culture is that of condensed expression, reduction and simplicity (though this does not imply either conceptual or formal simplicity).
In some cultural contexts, for example, in eastern poetic traditions brevity and condensation contain an extraordinary complexity and richness which unfolds in its entirety through reading and interpretation. In other traditions, and not only strictly literary, the brief note, the condensed thought or the aphorism served many authors well in the presentation of their ideas, sometimes very complex. Also in narrative, very brief stories ("micronarratives", "pocket tales" or "plain stories") suggest a new way of narrating and reading which appeals to subtlety, imagination and often the transgression of genres.

In this workshop, participants will learn all about the mechanisms of creation and reception of short poems (through haiku, tanka, and haibun). microstories, and aphorisms (in different thematic and tonal variations). The workshop will have an important practical component based upon the analysis and study of these literary forms as an initial stimulus and encouragement to individual creation.

WHO IS AIMED AT?
Nursery, primary and secondary school teachers. Open to anyone interested in learning how to prepare interactive materials.

INTRODUCTION
The workshop will explore the possibilities of different materials used in educational activities. During the course, participants will be guided towards defining and designing, and will finally be encouraged to make, their own material for use in teaching. With this course, ACVIC opens up a new space for educators, artists, and other interested members of the public, which will be available by appointment in order to prepare their very own materials. A workshop space, tools, and an assortment of difficult-to-find materials, will be available. You may also ask for advice on improving your projects in order to increase their classroom performance.

COURSE CONTENT

1st day
Presentation session in which participants may learn about the materials, handle a number of working tools and find out about a few simple resources for designing and finishing projects. Find out how to bring variety to your teaching aids using materials such as magnetic plastics, rigid supports, technical stickers, or even certain online or computer-based resources.

2nd day
Practical session in which each participant or group of participants will settle upon how they wish their project to develop, and will look for the best resources to ensure its completion.

3rd day
Closing session in which participants will finish their projects, and experiment with alternative techniques to improve their designs. After this session, the workshop space will be open and available to everyone. Participants may arrange a time to finish their work, if they were unable to finish during the workshop.

Toni Cirera, educational materials and project designer.
