Presenting at 3rd HEA conference
The Lowry Theatre in Salford (UK) was well represented by the Teesside University staff and students at the 3rd HEA Arts and Humanities annual learning and teaching conference, this year titled ‘Heroes and monsters: extra-ordinary tales of learning and teaching in the arts and humanities’
Heike spoke about pedagogical research project undertaken with her BA Dance students in spring 2014. She considered the emotional culture that students operate in and if the values and norms develop and change during the course of their degree.
This was followed by Teaching Fellow Richard Sober and two interior students, first year Emily Hogg and second year Rebecca Hayman. They presented a paper discussing student perceptions of current Higher education debates including value for money, independent learning and developing a readiness for employment.
