Lost & Found is a research project investigating pedagogies at UAL and its constituent colleges, 1975-2015. This forty-year period witnessed major changes in the governance and funding of Higher Education modifying and, in some instances, transforming pedagogic aims and approaches. The Neoliberal policies that circumscribed this process have been much discussed, however, the changed pedagogies within the arts university remain somewhat tacit and under-theorised. The research team utilised descriptive, analytical and archival methods to map these shifts. In particular, the research looked at instances of ‘rupture’ to identify moments of change but also to detect and understand continuities.
The report is dues to be published in the New Year and a link will be made available online in due course.
In this seminar Nick Addison (PI) will discuss key findings by inviting responses from participants, and (given time) examine the changing profile of reflexive dialogue within the arts university.
Nick teaches on the Teaching and Learning Exchange’s MA in Academic Practice. He is particularly concerned to map the possibilities of arts practice as a mode of research within arts education, and led the Lost & Found research project.
