    PhD candidate Valeria Paz Moscoso talking to students about ESCALA artworks

  1. 1


21 February 2014

This short introductory workshop, run jointly by ESCALA (Essex Collection of Latin American Art) and Learning and Development, works on the premise that you don’t have to know a lot about art to use it effectively in your teaching, whatever your discipline.

Art-based learning has been used in Higher Education in a range of subjects to promote students’ critical thinking, communication and professional reasoning skills. With a particular focus on the University’s world-renowned Latin American Art collection, this interactive workshop will give you the chance to:

• try out some simple techniques for using visual art to prompt discussion and inquiry
• find out how your colleagues have used works from the collection to enhance their students learning
• discover the resources and support available to you through Learning and Development and ESCALA.

For those who are inspired, we will offer a follow-up session later in the term where you can work with advisors from ESCALA and Learning and Development to develop in more detail ideas for introducing art-based learning into your own modules.

For more information, please see the University of Essex Learning and Development site here.

Date: Friday, 21st February
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
Room: 4SA.6.19
Audience: Academic/teaching-related staff
Facilitators: Gisselle Giron, ESCALA and Kate Dunton, Learning and Development
