Still on the Agenda: Towards a contemporary concept of learning


                                       Learning is a creative process.
                                       What we learn depends on how
                                         and where and under which
                                           circumstances we learn.
                                      Creativity is an interdisciplinary
                                       guiding principle in education that is
                                       not bound to any specific subject
                                      Unfolding multiple potentials of an
                                       individual’s personality, the
                                       connection of “brain, heart and hand”
                                      Learning by means of art-based
                                       methods opens up specific spheres of
                                       experience and development
The essential questions and the four UNESCO pillars of education

                                           What we learn

     And the reaction of the European authorities
On EU-level: Cultural competences: cultural awareness and expression




                                               Cultural knowledge includes an
                                               awareness of local, national and
                                               European cultural heritage and
                                               their place in the world …

                                               Cultural Skills relate to both
                                               appreciation and expression …

Elliot Eisner: What education can learn from the arts

  There is more than one answer to a
   problem
  Form and content interpenetrate
  The importance of imagination
  The importance of relationships
  The importance of intrinsic satisfaction
  Learning is not just about literal
   language and quantification
  The importance of being flexibly
   purposive
  The importance of a flexible time

                                       Cultural/creative education
                                        is more than traditional
                                        music or fine art education

                                       Culture for school profiling

„Ruhratlas“ – Quality aspects




                                 There is no quality per se –
                                  excellence is about decisions

                                 The quality of learning processes
                                  depends on the formulation of
                                  transparent targets

                                 The need for networking or: the
                                  actors are not alone
                                              © Martina Gaigg
What kind of challenges do we see and how do we want to respond?

                                     The traditions of the established
                                      institutions are (too?) strong

                                     Persisting prerequisites like: What
                                      we can‘t measure is of no value or
                                      The utilitarian dominance

                                     The changing role of the state and
                                      the appearance of new players

                                     The undetected potentials of the
                                      learner

                                     The fear of professionalisation and
                                      the need of a common
                                      understanding of quality
Teachers are decisive (Hattie)

                                             The long way from detecting
                                             weaknesses to fostering
                                             strengths
                                             The teacher as facilitator

                                             The teacher as co-researcher

                                             The teacher as motivator
                                             The teacher to be assessed

                                             The teacher as a trustful
                                               backbone in risk-taking

 The teacher and the question of (mutual) assessment
Directions to go
 Towards

  a new culture of teaching and learning:
   cooperative, project-orientated,
   interdisciplinary

  a new combination of practice and theory:
   Learning is about doing and thinking

  The provision of a new generation of
   education programs in cultural institutions

  increasing importance of informal education
                                                 © kallejipp/Photocase
   provision

  broadening the range of qualification: from
   knowledge transfer to the acquisition of
   competences
Let’s keep in mind

  Good solutions do not come from
   above

  Take advantage of the arts

  You are not alone

  Be on a par with each other

  Choose transparent objectives

  Make use of mistakes

  Remain curious

  Be brave and enjoy

  instability and taking advantage out of it“

Editor's Notes

  1. Response to an unbroken practice of reactionary-monarchist organisational structure of school learning: scholars were Gottfesfurcht and unconditional submission to the given reality: chauvinism and militarism should produce warrriors and subjects willing to sacrifice. The children learn their native country one day as a brave warrior and industrious workers to serve
  2. Essential knowledge, skills and attitudes related to this competence: Cultural knowledge includes an awareness of local, national and European cultural heritage and their place in the world. It covers a basic knowledge of major cultural works, including popular contemporary culture. It is essential to understand the cultural and linguistic diversity in Europe and other regions of the world, the need to preserve it and the importance of aesthetic factors in daily life. Skills relate to both appreciation and expression: the appreciation and enjoyment of works of art and performances as well as self-expression through a variety of media using one’s innate capacities. Skills include also the ability to relate one’s own creative and expressive points of view to the opinions of others and to identify and realise social and economic opportunities in cultural activity. Cultural expression is essential to the development of creative skills, which can be transferred to a variety of professional contexts. A solid understanding of one’s own culture and a sense of identity can be the basis for an open attitude towards and respect for diversity of cultural expression. A positive attitude also covers creativity, and the willingness to cultivate aesthetic capacity through artistic selfexpression and participation in cultural life.
