Call for contributions: The Inaugural Pedagogic Research in the Arts Slow Conference

Pedagogic Research in the Arts (PRiA) is delighted to welcome contributions to our first conference.

The conference will be held online across the week of Monday the 28th of March to Friday the 1st of April 2022 as a slow conference with one or two events a day. We hope this format will make for a relaxed environment for colleagues to participate. We'll be confirming details of events shortly.

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?
