Publication:SRHE News Blog
Publisher:SRHE (Society for Research into Higher Education) blog

Drawing on a keynote I gave last November to European League of Institutes of the Arts' Teachers Academy (ELIA, with 300,000 members from 282 HEIs), and my film on BBC iPlayer on a neurofuturistic 2050 (How to Thrive in 2050!, 2021), this op-ed Using Tentacular Pedagogy to change the HE culture outlines an inclusive and heuristic (co-) creative teaching/learning praxis that I term 'tentacular pedagogy' (TP), that aims to make creative arts in Higher Education more inclusive and socially-engaged, and for CA-HE to play a more (pro-)active leadership role within HE and beyond in nurturing a more creative and compassionate future, amid a moment of multiple, perma- and omni-crises within UK HE and beyond. The op-ed was published on the The Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) blog. Founded in 1966, SRHE is a UK-based international learned society concerned to advance understanding of higher education, especially through the insights, perspectives and knowledge offered by systematic research and scholarship. The Society aims to be the leading international society in the field, as to both the support and the dissemination of research. The blog has 187 followers, and SRHE has 5,300+ Twitter followers.
