Re-generating the praxis of academic staff development through arts-based learning : beyond paradox
Kerr, Cheryl (2010) Re-generating the praxis of academic staff development through arts-based learning : beyond paradox. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)
Effective staff development remains a challenge in higher education. This paper examines the non-traditional methodology of arts-based staff development, its potential to foster transformational learning and the practice of professional artistry, through perceptions of program impact. Over a three year period, eighty academics participated in one metropolitan Australian university’s arts-based academic development program. The methodology used one-on-one hermeneutic-based conversations with fifteen self-selected academics and a focus group with twenty other academics from all three years. The paper presents a learning model to engender academic professional artistry. The findings provide developers with support for using a non-traditional strategy of transformational learning.
