Previous Exchanges

TUESDAY 4TH MARCH 5.30 - 7 pm E223 (E Block, 2nd floor), Chelsea

Ellen Sims, Director of CLIP / CETL at Chelsea, will be speaking about the dissolution of disciplinary boundaries as this relates to contemporary art education and art practice.

The 'Teaching Landscapes in Creative Arts Subjects' research project was proposed by Shreeve and Trowler (2006) to contribute to and extend the debate around learning and teaching in HE disciplines to include the creative arts subjects.

Research has been conducted over a period of about a year, engaging practitioner teachers from across the University of the Arts London (UAL) in collecting data on teaching and learning in their own art and design disciplines. The outcomes have sparked debates on the relevance of and future for the notion of creative subject disciplines; how the boundaries are blurring; and the impact on learning, teaching, research and practice. This Creative Exchange session is your opportunity to enter the debate!

This project was funded by the Creative Learning in Practice Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CLIP CETL) and co-ordinated by Ellen Sims.

Chaired by Mary Anne Francis, Chelsea.

File:Pechakucha.jpg Show your research QUICKLY! @ Pecha Kucha

As part of the re-formatted Chelsea Research Exchanges, we are planning a Pecha Kucha session. ‘Pecha Kucha’ is a mode of presentation that originated in Japan, and asks 20 people to show 20 slides (about their work) for 20 seconds a slide. (Pecha Kucha’ is Japanese for ‘the sound of conversation!’

We hope that the format will provide an effective way of presenting a number of people’s work in one evening, to be followed by discussion.

If you would like to take part, all you have to do is to upload your images as digital files (web-ready) to our flickr site. Details:/

Once you’re logged on it’s pretty easy to use

  • If you really don’t like / don’t want to do digital images, then just bring paper copies of your work…*

We’re operating a first-come, first-served selection policy. But anyone not accommodated this time will be included, in turn, on a subsequent occasion.

Any queries, (but sorry, we’re unable to offer technical support!) to Mary Anne or
