Re-imagining data: Using arts-based methods for new perspectives in research, teaching and learning

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Explore the creative potential of new ways of reading and analyzing text in this two-part workshop on arts-based research (ABR). Through the ABR approach of “poetic inquiry,” participants will learn new methods for reading, assessing and analyzing journal articles, research and other written materials in a variety of scientific disciplines. The first session will introduce participants to ABR and teaching methods that support deeper meaning-making, connection and accessibility. The second session will explore how poetic inquiry and other arts-based methods can be used as teaching tools to support engaging students creatively and imaginatively with course concepts and practices. Participants will design and facilitate an arts-based learning activity between sessions, contributing to a collection of activities shared among participants. By the end of this workshop, participants will be prepared to:

  • Explore and engage with arts-based methods of teaching and research.
  • Discuss the value of poetic inquiry for synthesizing data, interpretation, meaning making, and presentation.
  • Create found poems from research and/or teaching data using poetic transcription and reflect on the process.
  • Design learning activities for using poetic inquiry in diverse disciplines and contexts.
