January 25 – 28th, 2016 we will welcome Professor Peter Gouzouasis to the lab from the University of British Columbia, (UBC). Over the past 25 years, Peter Gouzouasis’ work at UBC has evolved through three connective strands: (1) teaching and learning in music (including digital media and technologies), (2) developing an understanding of learning in and through the Arts and general curriculum using Arts Based Educational Research methods and digital technologies, and (3) relational, developmental perspectives on lifelong learning. These strands, or themes, have shaped Peter’s current scholarship as distinctive and innovative; expanding the methodological and pedagogical boundaries of arts related educational research and pedagogic practice.
Peter has a wide range of publications. He is particularly interested in non-fictional story-telling using auto-ethnography and duo-ethnography and we will be sharing some of his papers and his favourite writers/ performers to help introduce Peter’s ideas and practices.
During his visit Peter will not only present on his work including opportunity for interactive workshops and drop in sessions, but he will bring his guitar and music to inspire and entertain. We hope his visit will encourage staff, students and researchers across campus to come and share / discuss ideas and perspectives around creative pedagogy, design thinking and poetic/ performance inquiry.
