This workshop, by former IATL team member Phil Gaydon, will take radical virtue epistemology – which asserts that knowledge is not static, but a dramatic moment, a lived experience, and a passionate embodiment of our most deeply held values – and explore precisely what it entails for education, and its potential to engage students.
Wednesday 24 January 2018, 13:00-18:00 | Ramphal Building, R0.12
Open to all Warwick staff members and students, this workshop aims to establish an interdisciplinary discussion between academics and students on the basic ideas of ‘movement’, ‘motion capture’, and the ‘function’ of the human body. It will be informed by the student-focussed IATL Workshop on Movement held on 1 November 2017.
Photos of ICUR 2017, held 27 & 28 September, are now online; the conference covered a broad range of disciplines, connecting 100 Warwick students with 325 presenters from 10 institutions worldwide. The ICUR team in IATL would like to thank all presenters and attendees, the Monash-Warwick Alliance, and Warwick’s Audio Visual Services team. Check back here in 2018 for details of ICUR 2018!
