Workshops taking place in November and December 2013

Learning across disciplinary divides: integrating art and science through emergent curriculum design, University of Westminster, 20 November 2013.

Using the Broad Vision art/science learning project as a case study, this seminar aims to stimulate debate on the processes, successes and challenges of working across disciplines in higher education.

Exploring and examining expertise in Media teaching, learning and assessment; enhancing courses, developing resources, De Montfort University, 4 December 2013.

As the interdisciplinary Leicester Media School at De Montfort University establishes, media programme provision and related academics from arts, humanities and technology are coming together. This seminar will explore current learning and teaching practices, examine and share best practice, and develop interdisciplinary models for curriculum development across media in HE.

Philosophical enquiry: its method and purpose in higher education, Heythrop College, 6 December 2013.

Philosophical Enquiry is a powerful pedagogy grounded in Philosophy for Children (P4C), successfully established in schools. Delegates will be introduced to its theory, practice, and relevance to Higher Education. Examples of its use at Heythrop College and other HEIs will demonstrate its application in learning, teaching and the development of transferable skills and employability across academic disciplines.

Happenings and knowledge promenades: working cross discipline, University of Arts Bournemouth, 17 December 2013.

The workshop explores the value and potential of cross discipline collaborative activities and the dynamism of the Happening and the “knowledge promenade” in learning and teaching. Diverse case studies from a range of disciplines will provide inspiration and focus for interactive group activities that will develop further creative cross discipline ideas and collaborative opportunities that can make future “Knowledge Promenades” and Happenings . . . happen.
