Supporting teaching and learning in art, design and media
Networks is an online publication hosted by the Faculty of Arts at the University of Brighton. Written by, and distributed free of charge amongst, colleagues involved in higher education teaching and learning in art, design and media subjects.
Networks offers the opportunity for contributors to share their teaching and learning research with a broad audience where it can have genuine impact.
Networks aims to:
· Support a network of colleagues involved in higher education in art, design and media subjects;
· Help share knowledge between colleagues working in UK art, design and media higher education;
· Promote and share effective practice in learning and teaching.
Networks magazine was first published by the Art Design Media Higher Education Academy Subject Centre (ADM-HEA) in 2007. The Subject Centre, based at the University of Brighton and funded by the higher education funding councils, was established in 2000 with the aim of supporting and enhancing teaching and learning in the creative arts and media higher education in the UK.
The Higher Education Academy has been restructured as a result of funding cuts and the Subject Centre will close on 31 March 2012. After this date a small team in the Faculty of Arts will continue to produce Networks and endeavour to maintain the network of colleagues in art, design and media higher education built up over many years.
Details of work undertaken and completed by the ADM-HEA Subject Centre, in collaboration with staff, students, subject associations and professional bodies - case studies, projects, publications, awards, research and events, including previously published editions of Networks magazine have been archived and are available at: http://www.adm.heacademy.ac.uk/
Networks is published quarterly and is produced by Jenny Embleton, Debbie Flint and Stephen Mallinder.
