GLAD: Creative Pedagogies across Disciplines
Traditionally, the GLAD conference has offered an opportunity for the art, design and media community to share ideas and learn about innovative teaching and learning practices. With an increasing national debate on the meaning of excellence in teaching and learning and the introduction of the ‘Teaching Excellence Framework’ later this academic year, the 2016 GLAD conference will be looking out beyond the boundaries of art and design education in higher education. We will be inviting along new voices to enrich the debate and promote creative exchange.
Call for Papers/workshops
We now invite proposals to offer papers and or workshops, which address issues relating to the conference theme. Proposals could cover any of the following:
1. Reaching out across disciplines
What happens when art, design and media engage with other disciplines? How do these relationships enrich curriculum, teaching, learning and the student experience? What do art, design and media students learn from working with scientists, engineers, humanities and health professionals? What do their students learn from working with students in creative disciplines?
2. Creative pedagogies beyond the disciplines
How might creative teaching and learning pedagogies enrich and inform practice across the disciplines? What is their value beyond art, design and media? Are studio – based pedagogies of use beyond the art school and vice versa, and what do we learn from these experiences?
3 Art, Design and Media teaching and learning beyond the university.
How do partnerships with industry, business, communities and the creative / cultural sectors inform teaching and learning in art, design and media and enrich the student experience?
Paper/Workshop Format: Each paper/workshop will be 30 minutes duration, to consist of 20 minutes input and 10 minute discussion.
