CARE in the academic community

Last Thursday I went to a conference held by The Centre for Pedagogic Arts-based Research (Pedare).  This is a locus for pedagogic studies at Falmouth University researching e-learning, pure pedagogic research, performance based pedagogy and visual thinking. It aims to work collaboratively to advance the practice and theory of pedagogic research within the arts curriculum.
