Using Art as Research in Learning and Teaching

Multidisciplinary Approaches Across the Arts

Using Art as Research in Learning and Teaching explores various multidisciplinary visual and performing art forms, including creative writing, as ways to provide a rich contribution and understanding to research, learning, and teaching. Key figures in the field share their art-based research, arts practice, and philosophy, bringing the arts to life within their taught and learned contexts across a variety of art forms and levels of post-compulsory education. Featuring a foreword by internationally-renowned proponent of art-based research Professor Shaun McNiff, this book will be informative and useful to arts researchers and educators, addressing key challenges and possibilities in a rapidly changing higher education environment.

"This book is a valuable resource for those engaged in ABR [art-based research], as it provides philosophical and theoretical conceptions to ground aspects of inquiry. . . . This is an important contribution that may help to foster the development of more rigorous and meaningful ABR in the future. The chapters that expand upon the ways ABR might inform learning and healing are essential contributions as they spark the imagination as to what might be possible if we were to embed arts inquiry in what McNiff (2018) mentioned were the ‘mundane places accessible to all’ (xiv). Finally, the book provides suggestions as to how art-based researchers might better sustain their work and offers insights into where the discipline might evolve."
