A new creative pedagogy for students to return to campus October 2020

Following an intensive period of development, in consultation with students and practicing artists, Plymouth College of Art is preparing to launch its extended creative studio pedagogy, a hybrid of live online and on-campus creative practice within the physical environment of the college’s rich diversity of industry-standard studios and workshops. Over the summer, teaching is being redesigned to take advantage of the new hybrid teaching model, supported by one-to-one and group workshops that will happen on and off campus in specialist workshops and live digital platforms. Alongside this, the college has updated its support and training materials, moving academic, pastoral, careers, library and other professional support services online. Click here to read more.
