Geographical Regions of Interest

  • Finland
    I am proposing a two phase international arts education research project to be completed over two years with a team from Aalborg University. Phase 1 includes: Sharing of articles, videos, interests, and research via CANVAS. Skyping in focus groups to generate: webinars where the international team writes a video-based mutual competence development tool for university teachers/lecturers, based on exchanges of teaching experiences, teaching methods, as well as educational progression and facilitation. We will experiment with ways in which facilitating creative learning processes may be possible by means of video-conferences. The purpose would be to develop cross-cultural knowledge on creative and innovative teaching and learning, and how arts and cultural production contribute to learning. Implementing a project based on our questions and experiments that emerge from our competence development to compare and contrast creative learning processes in diverse classrooms. Phase 2 includes: U of U team travels to Denmark (or to a conference abroad) to collaborate, share, implement, present, teach in local classrooms, and/or research further investigations.
