Synopsis

We foster innovative, arts-informed and creative research methods, integrated with more traditional methods across the University. We are developing multidisciplinary research that engages experts throughout the University’s faculties and schools to enable the pursuit of new pedagogical and methodological directions in research, and to build:

  • new knowledge in the arts, education and creativity
  • new possibilities for professional practice for the education sector and beyond
  • deeper partnerships with schools, arts organisations and other stakeholders
  • continued focus on collecting evidence and representing research findings through various art forms (including narrative, drama, song, artworks, film and dance) to reach a wide audience inside and beyond the academy and thus create a significant impact on the community and society more generally.
