Didactic Lab Presentation, 7th ELIA Teachers Academy, Tilburg, The Netherlands, May 2015

Presentation entitled ‘Re-enact: creating an active living archive’, at the 7th ELIA Teachers Academy, Fontys School of Fine & Performing Arts, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

The changing landscape in higher education has seen the evolution of the learning spaces that reach beyond physical and/or time boundaries. Could the creation of a digital archive that depicts student practices be useful as a learning resource? An archive which reflects more holistically the contexts in which practice happens; inclusive of the students, their environment, the surrounding sounds and possible visual markers of the time. Could it act as a tool for self and peer reflection? Demonstrate students’ knowledge and understanding of arts practices? The creation of such an archive with students in Belfast School of Art was discussed, as were the key themes emerging from the evaluations over the past two academic years that the archive has been in existence.
