Universities on the way towards a new, performative teaching and learning culture?
If in its most basic sense performative means ‘creative doing’: To what extent have forms of creative doing become part of our university curricula? This symposium aims at bringing together colleagues from different disciplines who wish to discuss and experience performative approaches to teaching and learning at third level. While the modern languages and in particular the development of a Performative Foreign/Second Language Didactics will be our main reference point, perspectives from other academic disciplines and fields of aesthetic practice are also welcome.
The symposium will centre on the following questions: What exactly do we understand by a performative teaching and learning culture? Wherein exactly lies the benefit of applying performative approaches? How can we make university administrators and lecturers more aware of the immense innovative potential of going performative in third level education?
The main conference language is German, but some contributions are in English:
c) 10-minute presentation.
Note that the symposium will kick off with several 10-minute presentations which will introduce symposium participants to performative practices in different academic disciplines/university contexts.
