Dr Raphael Hallett

Director, Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence
Changing Study Habits: Lone Scholar to Digital 'Bricoleur'
A damaged culture of student scholarship?
The Point? Digital Curation and Critique
Rewards
Do we need an Assessment Revolution?
The Online Curator. The Student Creator. The Digital Scholar.
Culture of Multi-Platform Research
'Bricolage'
A method of using available tools and 'tinkering' with diverse resources, information and methods to produce outputs.
"Our students are certainly more adept 'bricoleurs' than we are.

They are creative assemblers. They learn by appropriating culture, dismantling and putting it back together... students are comfortable sampling, ripping, mashing, and remixing as well as multitasking"

Papson, S.,
Intellectuals, Scholars, Bricoleurs
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education October 2014 (vol. 13 no. 4)

A new student paradigm?
the hyper-visualisation of
knowledge, ideas, arguments
A culture of online assembly and exhibition,
collectively
produced knowledge.
Students as co-designers of research
Claude Levi-Strauss (1966)
Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari (1970s)

1990s and 2000s:
Formalised as a research method:
Denvir & Lincoln; Kincheloe
"When we go online, we enter an environment that promotes cursory reading, hurried and distracted thinking, and superficial learning"
Nicholas Carr,
The Shallows: what the internet is doing to our brains
(2011)

Prof David Platten, Pro-Dean for Student Education,
Faculty of Arts, University of Leeds
Dr Adam Cathcart, Lecturer in Chinese History, University of Leeds
But how should we
expect
our History students to read
in a digital age?
and then what else...
Our responsibility:
To stimulate a new
digital craftmanship?
Digital Literacy For All!
ODLM1000
Studying in a Digital Age
University of Leeds
Introduces University's digital platforms

discipline-based online tasks

digital resources?







Students as Co-Designers

...and fresh
Learning Spaces
Nurturing Digital Literacies
Building a
digital curriculum
In this approach, the student tinkers his way – using words, sketches, guided trial and error... in an iterative exploration of complex visual tasks


James Clayson; Radical bricolage (2008)
A new student
persona
as (anxious, frenetic, competetive?) co-creator of knowledge
So...
should programme and curriculum designers police, mimic or promote this activity?
Creative
Visualisations
Multiple research
pathways, options
Knowledge remediated,
reconstructed
Plural

History Research Culture is changing too:
the power of
archival
infographics
LESS COMMON
Is student interpretation & engagement any better?
You've earned it

‘The act of curating at its most basic is
simply about connecting
… the task of curating is to create junctions, to allow different elements to touch’

(Obrist 2015)
C17th / C21st sites of knowledge:
reinvented cabinets of curiosity?
taxonomies and dendrograms
Connecting data revolutions: from Gutenberg to Google

Students as (digital) Curators
Rethinking research for a new generation:
Object-based learning is an effective way of realizing two key conditions of effective learning: turning learning from an
individual
to a
social
experience...


Curation Pedagogy:
Possibilities for Material History and a new
materiality
of History learning, concrete and digital

a new digital fascination with knowedge?
a fresh digital 'materiality' of research?
Nurturing Digital Scholarship
Return to a pre-text aesthetic?
A fresh opportunity to emphasise the co-production and collaborative 'design' of historical knowledge
It's certainly more
self-aware, self critical...
