About this conversation:

In this conversation we will be exploring the potential of collage making as a tool for academic development, and for teaching and learning more widely. Drawing on the work of Daphne Loads (2010; 2016; 2017) I will be discussing the importance of such arts based methods for connecting learners with their own perceptions, and enabling connections between individuals to enhance learning communities.

I will be describing my own experience of using collage in the first module of a PGCert Learning and Teaching and reflecting on how my understanding of the practice has developed through time and experience. I will also be identifying different ways in which collage can be used to support student learning and engagement, before widening the discussion to include arts-based strategies more broadly, considering their value for facilitating critical self reflection in learners.
