We are all experiencing a time of crisis and change during the Covid-19 pandemic. The immediate matters are health and safety, however, there are other long-term concerns that need to be addressed. In this project we try and explore the impact of Covid-19 on Creative Higher Education and more specifically on creative subject degrees taught at higher education level in the UK and Internationally. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic most higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK and abroad have moved their teaching and work online and academics are now providing teaching support from home. However, while this is feasible for subjects where teaching tends to be lecture-base, the impact might be different for degrees where physical and material practice, equipment and spaces play a very important role in learning development and the acquisition of skills. With this project we would like to address the following questions:
- What has been the impact of Covid-19 on your teaching practices?
- What are the limitations / differences of online work in relation specifically to creative subjects?
- What aspects of your teaching are not possible in the current social isolation/ home-learning context?
- What new modes of engagement and opportunities have this crisis promoted?
