Research output: Contribution to specialist publication types MagazineResearch

Abstract

Integrating creative arts approaches in higher education (HE) is high-impact educational practice which can improve motivation and attendance support students to better retain knowledge, develop skills in critical thinking, encourage team working and support personal development. However student perspectives of engaging in arts-infused teaching can pose challenges to participation with a perception of activity as “childish and irrelevant” to academic study. This case study report explores the issue of negative student perceptions on arts-infused teaching practice, context of the teaching scenario will be given, followed by an exploration of both the issues and potential solutions highlighted in the relevant literature. The chosen activity implemented will be described and reflected upon before findings and recommendations are outlined.
