CMCI’s Dr Nick Wilson hosted a one-day conference on The Pedagogy of Ambiguity at the King’s College London Strand campus. Delegates attended from across the UK to share thinking on creative practice arts-based approaches to learning and assessment. The event heard how colleagues and students within King’s, ranging across liberal arts, humanities, nursing, midwifery, dentistry, bioethics, culture, media and creative industries (that part presented by CMCI’s Dr Jessica Rapson) were adopting novel approaches to foster and motivate creativity in an educational context.
Dr Arthur Burns – our Vice Dean Arts & Humanities (Education)- opened the event, and announced that the Faculty had awarded funding to The Pedagogy of Ambiguity research project, which Nick is leading, to develop guidance and further understanding of creative and arts-based learning and assessment within the Faculty over the coming year.
Further events and publications are planned, as well as the continuing development of nABLE (the Network for Arts Based Learning & Education), which Nick launched in 2011.
