Expertise in creative making processes – what is it? How do you get it?
This Research & Knowledge Exchange Doctoral Project brief summarises our priority areas of research interest under the heading of: Expertise in creative making processes – what is it? How do you get it?
We welcome all research degree applications aligned with and in response to this brief.
Project brief details
The creative sector is an expanding, economically valuable sector, across live and digital media. Universities are wanting to widen participation in their educational offer, to include lifelong learning, especially in postgraduate study. Following on from Richard Sennett’s early materialist work in expertise in design (The Craftsman, 2011), it is a useful time to revisit core pedagogical questions such as ‘What skills make up an expert creative in the fields of live and mediated performance? What discipline specific skills are needed? What is the difference between a keen amateur and a professional in the creative practice and process of a film maker, theatre maker or games creator? How are these questions refracted through the lens of questions of access, and equalities?
Projects deriving from this brief are expected to sit within the Research & Knowledge Exchange strategy and the following department.
All successful research degree project proposals must emphasise a clear alignment between the project idea and our Research & Knowledge Exchange strategy.
