|Subject Overview:||This subject examines through practice and associated reading the relationship between art-making skills & process, and artistry in teaching and learning. The students will firstly examine through discussion, lectures and readings the relationship between artists and teachers, and the concept of an aesthetic pedagogy. They will then engage in a piece of art-making of their own, documenting and analysing what is in effect an action-research/reflective practice process. The process will be analysed within the class, with ongoing feedback from the group and tutor; the students will then present live the finished artwork or work-in-progress with an accompanying commentary. |
The students will then extrapolate the implications of this personal process for either:
a. the artistic learning of students in a teaching context (eg their own students), or
b. the aesthetics of teaching, and of providing an aesthetic, dialogic and performative teaching context (eg their own classes)
