    InArtES: Intercultural Art Education & Society

    The international reputation of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerpen attracts both students and teachers from diverse countries. Through one-to-one coaching, artistic practice and international projects and masterclasses the Conservatoire creates an open attitude towards a multilingual population. The number of international students is increasing year by year, they easily find their way to the Music and Dance programs (40 to 75% presence of international students). The Drama department on the other hand has the ambition to attract more students with a diverse background following the growing diversity in the city of Antwerp. The InArtES-project aims to find ways of dealing with issues concerning diversity and interculturality in the teacher’s and student population and program. Its goal is to create more awareness of the multilingual and intercultural practice in the Conservatoire and to innovate and professionalize classes further.

    The approach is to create an open dialogue between teachers, teachers and students, and among students. How can we think out of the box and avoid a we-them-frame? How can we include works from non-western countries in the sources we use in class? How do we conserve our cultural heritage and be open to new influences at the same time? What kind of barriers do we experience in an intercultural biotope? What is it like to be a stranger? How do we deal with strangeness in ourselves? What are our needs, fears, assumptions towards other cultural identities? How can we work with our multiple identities? How can we engage the administration of the Conservatoire in working multilingual? Which teaching tools are relevant in this field?

    The InArtES research group consists of teachers, co-ordinators and researchers and would like to exchange experiences with interculturality and diversity at your institution. We are open to tips and tricks and best practices concerning the program and look forward to an empowering dialogue. 

    Session 4.3: How to coach researchers from project idea to grant application?

    Wednesday 25/04/2018 - 11.00 – 13.00 h. 
    Location: Campus Meistraat
    Lecturer: AP Research Office

    For a lot of researchers the road to a successful grant application can turn into an obstacle race. What are the most frequent obstacles and how can we remove them? What are the most effective ways to coach researchers in the process of applying for research funding? Are there methods that do not work? By exchanging our experiences we end up with a list of do’s and don’ts that can be helpful in your future work with researchers.  

    Session 4.4: Structural Mobility: Workshops and Best Practices

    Wednesday 25/04/2018 - 11.00 – 13.00 h. 
    Location : Campus Meistraat
    Lecturer : All participants

    Structural mobility is becoming more and more important. After the introduction session to structural mobility by Mr. Jacob Mentz in the previous session (session 3), partners will in this session have the opportunity to share best practices and discuss possibilities of structural mobility with the other participating partner organisations.

    Challenges and opportunities will be discussed in workshops and maybe this will be the start of future structural mobilities between your institution and one of the other participating HEI’s.

    As session 3 and 4 are complementary, we recommend to register for both sessions. This is however not mandatory.

    If you are interested in sharing a best practice regarding this topic during this session, please contact stephanie.goovaerts@ap.be.

    Location: Campus Ellermanstraat
    Lecturer: Herman Van de Mosselaer, Project Manager Educational Research at AP University College Antwerp

    The BEEHiVES project addresses cooperation between higher education institutions, employers/the world of work, and students. The central research question is: How can a strategic cooperation between HVET/PHE (Higher Vocational Education and Training / Professional Higher Education), employers and students be strengthened? The project uses a peer learning approach to operationalize the research design, which consists of desk research, focus groups, surveys, and national validation meetings in the participating countries (Czech Republic, Flanders, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom).
    Initial results find an increased policy emphasis on VET within all countries to address future skill needs. Despite this, all members of the strategic triangle in the participating countries feel that more needs to be done to fully address future skill needs, and that the key to addressing these needs is establishing stronger, more consistent and long-term collaborations and partnerships between the groups. The study observes what methods are currently used for this collaboration and points out success factors and key performance indicators. A first draft of these results will be presented during this session.
    The partners of the project hope to inspire and stimulate HVET institutions as well as employers and students to use the results of the study to strengthen their strategic partnership and to innovate educational practice and thereby improve student retention and graduate employability.

    Lecturer: Tom Peeters, Silvia Van Aken, Kristof Timmerman, Frederik Marain, and other researchers - researchers of Show & Tell! Immersive Storytelling, the first multidisciplinary research project of AP which is a collaboration between Management & Communication, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Royal Conservatoire, Science & Technology.

    Immersive storytelling is a strong emerging technique that is currently finding its way into new spaces such as theatres, games, documentaries, advertising and journalism. The aim is to give people the feeling of really ‘being there’, in 360° video. Opportunities are almost unlimited. For both journalists and artists a whole new world is opening itself in which virtual reality is becoming more and more important and relevant. Our goal is to find a way how a story (with a fiction, non-fiction or artistic subject) can be injected with graphic, technical and narrative elements to enhance public experience? How can virtual reality and other new technologies increase the quality of journalistic and artistic productions?
