'Tell Us About It' Student Voices in Creative Practice
The 'Tell Us About It' project was a joint collaboration between CLIP CETL and the UAL Diversity Team to research into the positive learning experiences of students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
We were keen to learn from the diverse student experiences to enhance teaching and learning for all and extend the range of institutional strategies to support students effectively in their learning and progression.
This is a short publication created to support learning in the creative arts. 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.
