Art, Design, Media Creative Learning and Teaching
5th Learning and Teaching Day

Registration is open until 18 November

The 5th Art, Design and Media Creative Learning and Teaching Day is this year being hosted by Ravensbourne and we shall be organising the event in collaboration with the new Higher Education Academy Discipline Leads, Carolyn Bew and John Mundy.

The day is designed for colleagues who are directly involved in learning and teaching in art, design and media: if you work in academic development, learning co-ordination or student support within art, design or media higher education this day is for you.

Presentations and workshops will provide opportunities to hear about current research, developments and innovations in art, design and media teaching and learning. Importantly, the event is a chance for colleagues to get together informally, share views, discuss opportunities and create future collaborative ventures.

A programme outline is now available online and a list of confirmed presenters. More information, including a full programme will be available shortly.

DPR12: Discourse Power Resistance: Impact
Plymouth College of Art
2–4 April 2012
Suggested date for abstracts: 25 November 2011
The conference considers what ‘Impact’ means for us, our work, our understandings and future developments. The social sciences, creative arts, education and humanities are currently under attack on a global scale as funding is concentrated on STEM related subjects; but the threatened fields of scholarship are themselves evolving new ways of thinking and practice and new sites and methods of enquiry. The conference explores the potential impact on each other of the creative arts and social sciences in terms of theory and practice.
