Jo Milne, teacher on EINA's Bachelor in Design and artist in residence at the Centre de Ciències de la Vida (MELIS/ UPF), is to take part on Wednesday 29 March in the first day on education and creativity at Crea, the new group of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC). The event will consist of a round table open to the public in the afternoon, with the participation of speakers from three arts and design schools: EINA, BAU and the Escola Massana.
This round table on "Creative processes in higher education" will discuss three main themes: materiality and online media translation; documentation of the work and learning process, and qualitative evaluation and feedback. This will be followed by a short debate to explore what meaningful and critical pedagogical practices can be developed in this context. The aim of this activity is to reflect on the challenges and possibilities for higher education in areas related to creativity in a context of digitisation of languages and learning spaces.
