Description

Abstract
Designed to consider 'pedagogies of care' within the Fine Art / HE context, this session opens dialogic opportunities to reflect on pedagogic practice and think towards the approaching academic year: 2021/22. Following an unsettled seventeen months of ever-changing uncertainties, we find ourselves at a relevant moment to pause and consider the needs and progression of existing students and how we support the transition of new students into unfamiliar educational environments. The underpinning idea is to focus on what we understand to be ‘care’ and to question how we develop good relationships at such a complex and challenging time, with view to exploring caring teaching strategies and the actions we apply to create inclusive, welcoming spaces.
