Artswork media: a work-related learning environment
This workshop will focus on Artswork Media, a digital media enterprise emerging out of Bath Spa University?s Artswork Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). This workshop will explore the studio as providing the ?context? and ?practical means? for students to relate to themselves as potential media and cultural industries workers. This focus on identity and ?personhood? (du Gay, 2007) is concerned with how students make sense of their creative work and position that in relation to their understandings of ?work?. For example, findings from existing research with the studio (Ashton, 2010) signal ?professionalism? as a key framing, and this workshop aims to further explore understandings of creative agency and work as they are bound up with context and place. This workshop will encourage discussion and evaluation of: - The Artswork Media approach and the different models for facilitating creative work. The aim here is to explore the range of contexts and practical means bound up with creative agency. - Understandings of work and desirable attributes for working ?in industry? as articulated by students at AWM. Analysis of AWM is intended to be the starting point for reflection and sharing of experiences by workshop participants. Whilst analysis of existing findings will be touched on, a range of materials generated in dialogue with the students will be used to open up discussion in terms of the interests and experiences of participants.

Abstract

This workshop will focus on Artswork Media, a digital media enterprise emerging out of Bath Spa University?s Artswork Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). This workshop will explore the studio as providing the ?context? and ?practical means? for students to relate to themselves as potential media and cultural industries workers. This focus on identity and ?personhood? (du Gay, 2007) is concerned with how students make sense of their creative work and position that in relation to their understandings of ?work?. For example, findings from existing research with the studio (Ashton, 2010) signal ?professionalism? as a key framing, and this workshop aims to further explore understandings of creative agency and work as they are bound up with context and place. This workshop will encourage discussion and evaluation of: - The Artswork Media approach and the different models for facilitating creative work. The aim here is to explore the range of contexts and practical means bound up with creative agency. - Understandings of work and desirable attributes for working ?in industry? as articulated by students at AWM. Analysis of AWM is intended to be the starting point for reflection and sharing of experiences by workshop participants. Whilst analysis of existing findings will be touched on, a range of materials generated in dialogue with the students will be used to open up discussion in terms of the interests and experiences of participants.
