Wilsmore, R, Alix, C and Dobson, E (2010) Collaborative Art Practices in HE: Mapping and Developing Pedagogical Models. Higher Education Academy Resources Centre.

This project asks ‘How is interdisciplinary collaboration "taught" in HE institutions?’ and ‘What pedagogical models can be identified and developed?’
Performing and Creative Arts departments in HE institutions engage students in collaborative practice within a singular discipline or across disciplines, through interdisciplinary or hybridised art forms, as curricula or extra-curricula activity. Where students are engaged with interdisciplinary collaboration within the curriculum, tuition may involve case studies of collaborative partnerships, psychometric tests, a trial and error approach to throwing creative individuals together, or any combination of these.
This project aims to bring together ideas and modes of practices used in HE institutions and to present, as far as is possible, an overview of the current practices where interdisciplinary collaboration is a focal point of the learning activity.
In brief, and in the context of Performing and Creative Arts departments in HE institutions, this development project aims to:
Take a snapshot of current practice in HE
Construct typologies of modes of practice
Consider how pedagogies may be developed
Disseminate documentation setting out, and commenting on, pedagogical approaches to collaborative practice
