(Re) making and (re) writing self into discourse through arts-based educational research

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


    Geraldine explores the photo book genre as central to her Australian arts-based PhD on Immersive Art Pedagogy. She shares how the photo book enabled her to feature excerpts that (re)make and (re)produce self into discourse from the inside/outside worlds of the artist/researcher/teacher. Sharing multi art forms beside reflective/reflexive commentary, the hybrid form of the photo book enabled her to build creative analysis alongside forward making possibilities while fore-fronting pracademic sensibilities. This presentation discusses Geraldine’s journey through research to define and articulate her teaching philosophy and practice, a pedagogy inspired by a/r/tography that emerged and continues to evolve through her work in schools and universities. Geraldine suggests that she is a practical academic, in her field of operation who seeks to disclose and amplify the creative freedom that exists in this space. It was her desire to expose the creative core of her pedagogy that largely determined the method and form of her PhD which comprised an arts-based project presented as a photo book, and an exegesis.
