Teaching Making / Making Teaching
- Year: 2017
- Website: http://www.digitallyengagedlearning.net/2017
Themed ‘Teaching Making / Making Teaching’, 2017’s conference seeks to explore digitally-engaged practices and processes of teaching, making and researching within the creative disciplines. By ‘digitally engaged’, we are referring to practices that are actively with, about or in digital tools and spaces. We take the creative disciplines to refer to a wide range of areas including (but not limited to) art, design, media, performing arts and music. We understand teaching, making and researching as uncertain ‘crafts’ that involve processes of self-discovery, experimentation, enquiry, reflexivity and development. They can be understood as ‘emergent, dynamic and serendipitous’* as much as they are carefully designed, structured and planned.
This year we have not defined conference tracks. We hope this encourages submissions that resonate with the overall conference theme, but that make sense in the context of the many disciplines and practices participants may be coming from.
