Artist-Led Learning in Higher Education

September 1, 2018 to December 31, 2021
40 months

The ALL-Artist-Led Learning in Higher Education project aims to improve the creative competence of learners, educators, and pracademics (practitioners + academics) by developing an experimental framework for arts-based teaching methods and a sustainable collaboration amongst partners and will be implemented in other higher educational institutions all over Europe.

The partnership involves people interested in arts-based methods and their application to higher education. The project is about building a laboratory for free and structured arts-based experimentation, in a co-creative partnership of leading academic experts who also have practical experiences with/in artistic practices.

The arts-based methods will be targeted to educators who desire a holistic and creative approach to teaching and who wish to stimulate their learners' creativity even in programs without art content. Artists are also expected to enhance their competence in applying artistic methods to non-arts contexts. We will broadly disseminate the material developed by means of open source and virtual platforms, making them publicly available. 


In addition to academic communications (articles) on the impact, benefits and leadership of ensemble creativity, this project aims to build a sustainable collaborative laboratory for supporting artist-led learning in higher education. To this end, the project will develop a handbook and e-book for arts-based training and guidelines; a publicly open data bank with learning resources; staged work demonstrations; and methods on how to assess and document creative competencies.
