Artswork, the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in the creative industries at Bath Spa University, aims to innovate arts education and enhance students’ employability. At the core of our development work is a major longitudinal research project into ‘Learning in the Arts’. This research has three main purposes: it establishes a baseline for Artswork to measure its progress; it enables Artswork to be better informed about creative industries students, their expectations and aspirations and how these change over time; and it enables Artswork to use the student experience to inform educational development across and between departments. Our approach to staff development involves teachers interpreting the data about the student experience and asks them to reflect on the students’ responses, in order to reflect on their own teaching practice. This session will share this model through exploring ‘real data’ with participants and will also reflect on the range of attitudes and responses from teaching staff to research findings.
