The Inaugural Pedagogic Research in the Arts Slow Conference 2022

Pedagogical Innovation in the Arts after the Digital Pivot.

The Pedagogic Research in the Arts Centre (PRiA), Faculty for Arts, Humanities and Cultures, is delighted to announce our first online slow conference. The online slow conference will be held across the week of Monday the 28th of March to Friday the 1st of April 2022 with one or two events a day. We hope this format will make for a relaxed environment for colleagues to participate.

The theme of the conference is 'Pedagogical Innovation in the Arts after the Digital Pivot'. The Digital Pivot is the rapid transition to online teaching and learning due to the Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020. Two years later, what does pedagogical innovation in the arts look like?

For more information, please see the conference programme.
