On the final day of the course, the course participants present how they have grasped their observations of educational settings at Bakkenteigen and creatively transformed them into dance, music, poetry, visual or embodied expressions. Kimber Andrews will briefly introduce the course and her arts-based approach to understanding university lecturers’ body language as form of choreography.   

The lecture will introduce arts-based methodology and show how such methodology can be practiced in contexts of education, and related to diverse social or cultural phenomenon. The lecture is relevant for bachelor-, master- and phd-students who deal with qualitative research or are curious about approach to “radical qualitative research”. Colleagues from “Faculty of Humanities, Sports and Education” are welcome – as well are colleagues and students from other faculties!
