Cultivating Curiosity: exploring the design of teaching and learning at UAL

Curiosity is critical for learning in the arts and the current University strategy positions it ‘at the heart of our curriculum’. But how do we set up the conditions for it to flourish?

What strategies, environments, triggers, scaffolds, assignments and methods are being used to develop students’ appetite and capacity for independent learning? We know that UAL teaching and support staff are the highly-skilled architects behind hundreds of well-designed student experiences every day.

Connected to UAL’s enhancement theme of enquiry-based learning, this year’s Learning and Teaching Day sets out to explore the important work that goes into designing curricula that helps students to take ownership of their learning.

Keynote Speaker
We are delighted to welcome Simon Kavanagh of Danish hybrid Business and Design school, Kaospilot. Simon will talk about the necessity of incessant curiosity and how it drives the Kaospilot community.

Who should attend?
This event is open to all UAL staff.
