SEDA Keynote Colin Beard
Overarching themes used in the SEDA keynote delivered by Dr. Colin Beard. Massification and marketisation is both problematic and opportunistic, forcing us to be open to new journeys and to (ed)venture out - into ‘other’ worlds. Argued for a unification of book-experiential learning. Argues for an increased sophistication of experience of learning by reflexive work on our practice. Continued work with traditional academic strengths.....what we are good at such as critical thinking, dissonance engineering, theorising. Greater connectedness of different ‘forms of knowing’ the world. A positive social-psychology with associated increase in awareness of and creation of space for dialogue about, sensory-affective pleasures of learning. Increase awareness of the pleasure from getting, doing, knowing, becoming......and being. Question scholarship as necessarily serious!
Some of the Overarching themes used in the SEDA keynote delivered by Dr. Colin Beard. Arguing for a closer exploration of the relationships between forms of knowing, cognition and space. Question scholarship as necessarily serious. Taking knowledge out with us....into new spaces not let go of academic strengths such as theorising, critical interpretations, dissonance engineering, etc. Outer space....infinite - beyond classroom, beyond local communities, hegemonic social understanding of world and learning – denigrates nature, role of body, also look at real world simulated world, service and community changing language words are bugles of social change(e.g. Placement). Inner space.....infinite - ontological self, being....developing sense of self of majority of our students... Form and formless, fear of silence.....and nature!
