Creativity in composition through alternative forms of representation
Many varieties of scholarly practice have emerged that reinstate the author as subject, embrace creative and storied means of representation, and deny ‘objectivity’ from the practice of fieldwork. Scholars have been encouraged to show rather than tell (Leggo, 2008, p. 11). A qualitative researcher is invited to not only place themselves in the text but also to “problematize” the form of academic discourse itself, and to use alternative and engaging approaches to create an art of scholarly inquiry.
Metaphor and metonymy are core renderings in a/r/tography (de Cosson & Irwin 2004) – an approach to qualitative inquiry that enables an artist-researcher-teacher to explore teaching, learning, and theoretical issues across a variety of disciplines. Because we are a visually oriented culture, most Arts-Based Educational Research (ABER), Arts Related Research (ARR), and a/r/tographic research has used text (poetry, narratives [tales, stories]) and visual art to represent data and make meaning of experience. This session will focus on sound, in the context of a form of music composition – the ‘soundscape’ – to explore different ways of interpreting and expressing human experiences. This session will also feature the use of a variety of creative tactics, strategies and graphic organizers to engage learners in student centered compositional activities.
Peter Gouzouasis’ visit to the Lab
January 25 – 28th, 2016 we will welcome Professor Peter Gouzouasis to the lab from the University of British Columbia, (UBC). Over the past 25 years, Peter Gouzouasis’ work at UBC has evolved through three connective strands: (1) teaching and learning in music (including digital media and technologies), (2) developing an understanding of learning in and through the Arts and general curriculum using Arts Based Educational Research methods and digital technologies, and (3) relational, developmental perspectives on lifelong learning. These strands, or themes, have shaped Peter’s current scholarship as distinctive and innovative; expanding the methodological and pedagogical boundaries of arts related educational research and pedagogic practice.
