Country/TerritoryUnited Kingdom


This session aims to explore collaborative work underway in the University of Hertfordshire’s School of Creative Arts to identify, articulate and share the ways in which learning takes place across its many disciplines. The project was prompted by student feedback suggesting some insecurity and confusion about creative and independent learning in higher education. Participants will see an illustration of the processes of learning in the School, created by a graphic artist from staff reflection and discussion. The image, depicting figures in a landscape who are engaged in processes of learning, provides an accessible focus for discussion between staff and students. It also offers opportunities to inspire creative responses from students. Colleagues will be invited to add to the material by reflecting on key aspects of learning in their own discipline, and to take away an idea of how they might enhance the vibrancy and visibility of these processes in their own context.
