1st Performative Teaching and Learning Symposium

13 Sep 2013

Exploring Performative Practices across Disciplines

  • Fri, September 13th 2013, 9.15 – 17.00, UCC Drama Lab (Connolly Building, Western Road)
  • Sat, September 14th 2013, 10.30 – 13.00, Main Campus, Alfred O’Rahilly Building, Room 1.23

The symposium centres on theoretical perspectives and practices which aim at paving the way towards a new, performative teaching and learning culture. Guiding questions will include: What is the essence of the ‘performative’? Are there indications of an increased ‘performative orientation’ in some of our disciplines? Could the ‘performative concept’ signal a whole new way of thinking and acting in the field of ‘teaching and learning’ (=new paradigm)? What are the characteristic features of performative teaching and learning? How does one learn to teach in a performative way?
