Integrating Academic and Artistic Methodologies within a PBL-environment

04-01-2017

This is a call for papers for a special issue on “Integrating Academic and Artistic Methodologies within a PBL-environment” to appear in Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education (JPBLHE). The special issue is edited by Elizabeth Juchum, Falk Heinrich and Morrten Søndergaard.

Abstracts due 1 May 2017 · Papers due 1 September 2017

The themes that we suggest for this special issue are:

  • Can we envision an integration of academic and artistic methods that fosters an innovative methodology, or are academic and artistic methodologies fundamentally incompatible?
  • Do artistic methodologies supplement, broaden, or work against the tenets of the PBL approach?
  • Does PBL have a theoretical base through which we might conceptualize the integration of artistic and academic methodologies, for example, by allowing for different degrees or modes of integration?
  • What are the challenges or trade-offs of combining artistic and academic methodologies? What is gained and what is lost when we move across disciplinary boundaries?
  • How are artistic and academic methodologies defined historically, and which new perspectives and discourses make integration possible?
  • How can the integration of artistic and academic methods be realized in concrete teaching practices within an PBL environment?
