Collection of Projects 2005 to 2007
Creative Learning in Practice Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CLIP CETL) has been able to engage staff in many projects in learning in art and design, through offering a number of schemes to reward staff with time and space to undertake research, trial curriculum innovations and develop teaching resources. This booklet provides an overview of the projects undertaken between 2005 and 2007, the first half of the CETL's activity.
They are grouped under three broad headings; resources for teaching and learning, practices in teaching and learning and research into teaching and learning. These headings are deliberately broad, to encompass the richness of staff initiated investigation and some projects fit into more than one category. Where resources exist this is indicated, or if the reader requires further information which is not available on our website we suggest you might contact the holder of the award.
If you are a tutor in art and design we hope you will check out what is here and use the ideas and resources in your teaching and also encourage your students to make use of the available resources in their learning.
This is one of a series that address issues for students and tutors in higher education and we believe that other discipline areas would also find them useful. The series has been developed by the Creative Learning in Practice Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of the Arts London.
The booklet is designed for busy teachers and support staff working with students. We hope that it is a starting point to give you ideas to explore ways to address issues in learning and teaching; not giving you more work, but thinking about working in different ways to support your students.
The series as a whole tackles some key themes that have arisen through the work of the CLIP CETL and is not an exhaustive list. There are short case studies identified throughout the text to enable you to hear and see what colleagues have done in these situations. There are frequent student voices, telling us how it is from their perspective; what helps them to learn and what they find difficult.
