University of Exeter - St Lukes Campus

- Free, no advance booking required
All are welcome to attend an interactive seminar at which three members of the University of Exeter's Creative and Emergent Education Network (CEEN) will be sharing how they are/have been using creative methods in their research.
The purpose of this seminar is to provide a
forum for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars to share the ways in which they
try to use methodologies and methods that align with the desire to reflect
their interest in creativity in different educational settings, whether in
disciplines that are 'traditionally' thought of as creative or not. As the
title of the seminar suggests, presenters will use different ways to share
their ideas, each working with the audience for between 20-30 minutes, with
time for dialogue between each presentation:
- Nancy Katingima Day: Forgotten Educational Spaces: Music making in Contemporary Kenya
For over 23 years I have been involved with Music Education in various contexts within Kenyan urban educational contexts. I am now a part time PhD Education student exploring how Kenyan (in the broadest sense of the word) young people can capitalise on the vast richness of their cultural heritage while at the same time remaining relevant to their present reality as well as in negotiating an emergent future through music making.
- Lizzie Swinford: My Body Talks: What does dance have to offer children with English as an Additional Language?
I am a dance practitioner living and working in Devon. Recently my work has come to focus on early years and special needs children. Currently I am working on an ACE funded dance and story-making project for Devon Libraries with fellow dance and movement artist Pip Jones. I completed the MA in Education at St Luke's last summer and this presentation is based on my dissertation.
- Thomas Ralph: Walking with Pupils as a Strategy for Fighting Familiarity
It suggests that not only is the study of movement in school neglected, moving with children in school is a valuable means by which a researcher can fight their familiarity with that environment.
I recently completed his PhD which consisted of an ethnography that took place in a school in the South of England located on a social priority estate. This focused on investigating what kind of people the pupils wanted to be recognised as and asked what kind of place they wanted school to be. I am currently the Subject lead for the PGCE Secondary Maths course.
A light lunch is available at this event. Please RSVP through Frances Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org
