Practices of Enquiry is a two-year institutional enhancement project, exploring how we create the conditions for enquiry to flourish within our ‘creative, curious, critical curricula’ (Learning Teaching and Enhancement Strategy 2015-2022).

Since summer 2016 a team of students and graduates has been collaborating with teaching staff on a research project, creating case studies of excellent enquiry-based teaching practice across UAL. These case studies have been translated into a series of artefacts that attempt to visualize the teaching practice, whilst provoking reflection on the process of teaching in the arts. These artefacts have been curated into UAL’s first exhibition of teaching.

This event will take place within the exhibition space, and forms part of the associated programme of staff development, co-ordinated by the Teaching and Learning Exchange.

Drop in to see the exhibition at Chelsea any time in the week of the 14 November.

Hope you can make it.
