Resources – Case studies
The aim of the case studies is to share with the wider community tried and tested modules that accord writing a central place. The
case studies investigate the following aspects relating to the teaching and learning of writing in HE A&D:
for motivating and enabling students to write, to think dynamically and to integrate visual research with the written text.
These techniques should indicate research, critical analysis and synthesis with some applied method of rigour that overcomes the mismatches that
characterise the current structure of teaching and learning of writing in many HE institutions in A&D (for a more detailed analysis see our Primer
these can be described as ways of looking at the teaching and learning context. They should be student
centred, relevant and dynamic. They should indicate a range of stances, from the ideological (e.g. an outline of the teaching and learning pedagogy)
to the practical.
Models of teaching and learning:
these are models that address current mismatches in the teaching and learning of
writing in A&D in many HE institutions (see also our Primer Report). They should be dynamic, student centred, flexible. They should be inclusive in
that they should relate theory to practice and address the needs of visual spatial learning (including learners with dyslexia), and be inclusive in
embracing international and mature students.
these would be samples of student projects / writing that include both
writing and visual research; forms of critical analysis, which are both textual and visual, and a synthesis of the two, appropriate to the respective
module / unit / brief.
