ELIA Academy 2019 — Decoding Digitality in Higher Arts Education


        The theme of the 9th ELIA Academy is digitalisation. Many students (and teachers) are embracing new forms of digital arts and digital practices — these new, blended practices stretch our conceptions of creativity. This topic offers the chance to debate, analyse and reflect on the challenges and opportunities across all artistic disciplines and teaching approaches.

In addition to keynote speeches, the programme will feature interactive presentations focused on a number of common keywords, each connected to a specific aspect of digitalisation. Delegates will be able to navigate their own digital path through the Academy by exploring one or several of the following topics:

Emotional experience / immersion
Critical attention / scepticism
Societal impact
Developing digital pedagogies
Digital fluencies
Research / methodologies
Storytelling / narrative
History / foundations / roots

Paper Submission is closed. You can register here.

We look forward to bringing the ELIA Academy to Stuttgart! Fahim is in the steering group of the ELIA Academy 2019 and will act as chair for several sessions.
