Abstract

Over the last ten years we have been acutely aware of the culture of the students and staff and how it affects learning and understanding of international issues. This research aims to re-assess the international and cultural aspects of learning in the provision of art and design specifically from a post-graduate education perspective. Post-graduate education is a natural place to start in addressing the research; it is a microcosm of culture change within global perspectives. The intent of this paper is to explore and focus on some of the major issues, which we have either tackled or are attempting to tackle in developing and understanding this provision alongside global, governmental and institutional strategies. This ‘conceptual’ research is also informed by cultural identity and globalisation theories synthesizing with pedagogic research.

The workshop structure consisted of a short introductory presentation of the research; two case studies; an active participatory workshop session. Participants responded to two questions in two different groups, ‘What do you consider to be the ‘personal’ challenges you face in the international and cultural aspects of learning in the provision of art and design post-graduate education.’ What do you consider to be the ‘sector’ challenges it faces in the international and cultural aspects of learning in the provision of art and design post-graduate education. The participants subsequently presented their findings. The workshop closed with a conclusion of the research.
