#STU10 – Mark Ingham: “New Paradigms in Pedagogical Thinking for the Academy of the very near Future, or how the Wasp Became the Orchid”

WEDNESDAY, 21TH OF DECEMBER 2011, 8 PM GMT

Title: New Paradigms in Pedagogical Thinking for the Academy of the very near Future, or how the Wasp Became the Orchid.
Tweeter: Dr Mark Ingham, @ScopingPhD2010. Mark is visual artist who has been making work about and researching into ideas of autobiographical memory and its relationships with photographic images. This work is made up of a number of installations that use SLR cameras and LED light sources to create photographic projectors. They use photographic slides as their image source and are attempts to create a sense of memories being fuzzy narratives that can constantly change and be changed. These projected photographic images are an exploration into experiences of remembering and forgetting. They are attempts to evoke a form of ‘paramnesia’, whereby fantasy and reality collapse to create a sense of déjà vu. He is a Principal Lecturer at the University of Greenwich in the School of Architecture, Design and Construction. He is a Masters Programme Leader in the Design Future Despartment.
Description: The impetus for this lecture is how the works of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari can be used to rethink university level education especially in Art and Design. Taking two of their famous metaphors of the Rhizome and the Nomad, the discussion will circulate around ideas of how technology and social media are changing the landscape of how we learn and teach in a 21st century academy. To paraphrase Deleuze, ‘“A lecture is a brick. It can be used to build a courthouse of reason. Or it can be thrown through the window.” The lecture will be a series of ‘thought experiments’ or musings on how we can think differently about how we learn in today’s more connected and hopefully more collaboratively orientated educational systems.
