Visual Arts Workday: Unfolding

May 11, 2019, HEP Vaud

On May 11th, the EBU Audits of Art and Technology at the HEPVaud invite visual arts specialists from Switzerland to a day of work on the teaching of the visual arts at the primary level (Harmos 1 to 8) and at the secondary level I and II. This initiative extends the meeting between: the Swiss Society for Teacher Education, the Association of Visual Arts Teachers of German-speaking Switzerland (Bildnerische Gestaltung | Bild und Kunst) and the CREAT Laboratory (Creation Research Teaching Arts and Technology). This day is open to all visual arts teachers and trainers of the Hautes Ecoles Pédagogiques and will be dedicated to the work of HEPVaud students.

This working day will allow to compare different pedagogical approaches related to the teaching of the visual arts as well as various training modalities in connection with the artistic creation within the institutions and associations of Switzerland.

The objective of this day of work is to create synergies between the various actors and to bring out common projects focused on the content of teaching in visual arts, on the different didactic approaches as well as on the different study plans for primary and secondary grades.

Three workrooms will be set up and will exhibit work by HEPVaud students:

1) Disciplinary and Practical Knowledge in the Visual Arts

2) Visual Arts Work in 1-4 Degrees Harmos, 5-8 Harmos

3) Visual arts work in Secondary I and Secondary II.

 The participants will be able to take part in a round table according to their choice and to express their points of view. The day will end with a pool and will inaugurate the relay race (Staffel) to discover other student work from other cantons.

The deadline for registration is 1 May.

Texte et images dans la littérature illustrée matinée d’études et table ronde

Friday 1st march 2019, HEP Vaud, 9h - 12h, salle C33-614

The illustrated book is a composite medium within which a single message is carried jointly by an object, a text and images. Didactically, the support appeals as much in its forms and its contents as in the pedagogical practices that it underpins: the writing, the read, the narrated, the imagined, the drawn, the connected, intimately lived, the felt, shared. In a wider socio-cultural perspective where the image has never been so present in communication, the use of support in school pathways must be able to decenter the text and consider its multimodality. This morning of studies is organized in two stages. The presentation of Hep-Vaud's partnership with the Fondation Les Maîtres de l'Imaginaire will introduce communications focused on the pedagogical and didactical aspects at stake in the illustrated literature. A round table, in the presence of teachers, educationalists, researchers, authors, illustrators and publishers, will close the morning to question the dialogue between text and images in this media.

Create in music course Mission impossible?

Cantonal day of continuous training


The Plan d'études romand (PER) now requires elementary school teachers to promote student expression through their own creations, particularly in the disciplines of the Arts field. If this prescription seems easily achievable in visual arts, it is clear that these activities are not often put into practice in music lessons.
How to encourage the creation of rhythms, melodies, soundscapes in music lessons while building the musical skills of students? How to put in place effective devices and manage the work of collective creation?
The three workshops this day attempt to answer these questions by providing practical examples that address the collective creation process according to a common model. The lecture by Marcelo Giglio (HEP professor, music teacher and researcher at the BEJUNE HEP), entitled "Supporting the students' creative drive without breaking it", focuses on the didactic aspects of these activities. Students' accompanying challenges will be illustrated by observations from different school contexts.

Cultures and Creation didactic approaches

Thursday 8 et Friday 9 february 2018

Winter Academy

Research-Creation and Didactic Methodologies in Arts and Technology
How to define the identity of research-creation in the area of ​​research and higher education?
Thursday 8 and Friday 9 February 2018, Conference Room, MISHA, University of Strasbourg

Organized by
The ACCRA EA 3402 Laboratory, University of Strasbourg
The Higher School of Teaching and Education
In collaboration with :
EBU didactics of art and technology
The EBU Psychology and Music Pedagogy
University of Teacher Education, Vaud

During the first Summer Academy1 (HEP Vaud, Lausanne, 4-6 July 2017), the speakers - researchers, artists, trainers - had explored the didactic perspectives of the artistic and / or technological creation, by questioning the territory of the research-creation for its methodological contributions. The central subject was the link between creation and research and its contribution to the teaching of artistic and technical disciplines. The debates developed around the process of creation touching a positioning at once epistemological, ontological and poïetic. The creation practices and the construction of knowledge in the framework of higher education (at the university or in a university pedagogical school) must today not only question the methodologies adopted in research-creation, but also widen the stakes of postures and objectives pursued in institutional spaces.

In order to prolong the exchanges and the work of the Summer Academy, this Winter Academy wishes to define the place and status of research in its relation to creative practices, the role of these in the space of research and interaction between research and training in arts and technology2.

A third component - a third Academy - will then, in the coming years, examine the possible bridges between research-creation, university training and professional training in arts and technology. Following the same dynamic initiated during the Summer Academy during the research workshops where a central question was raised by the speaker and then discussed with the audience - a sort of laboratory of experimental ideas - the Academy of winter wishes to find the space conducive to this format that gives the speaker the choice to propose a problem and that leaves us a range of time broad enough so that the debate and exchanges can be built collectively around these
Questions :

What is the posture and what are the means of action of teacher-researcher creators?

How can we profile this multiple identity and better understand the issues of research-creation and the teaching of arts and technology at the graduate level?

How can research-creation, in its creative manifestation, open up to meet an audience and propose original broadcasting situations in the space of research-creation?

How to question didactic methodologies in the context of training in
arts and technology?

The strength and originality of our line of research initiated jointly with the ACCRA and the research group of the HEP Vaud (CREAT) lies in the desire to make research-creation interact with the teaching of the arts and culture. technology. And to converse teachers, researchers and creators in order to produce the theoretical approaches needed today to measure themselves, as teacher-researchers in arts and technology, to the different institutional frameworks that manage the way teaching works. Higher Education and Research (Process of
Bologna, LRU, LMD, etc.).

This Winter Academy therefore proposes to continue this work in a plural team. Our wish is to set up a cycle of academies (summer / winter) whose centers would be Lausanne and Strasbourg, while preparing the ground to draw a network with other institutions and places of formation and research like for example the University of Western Brittany (Bachelor Arts - Brest) and the University of Aix-Marseille (LESA). Through these Academies, research in art or technology and creative / design practices draw new perspectives and propose
new forms of knowledge.

Recherche – Création : perspectives didactiques

Mardi 4 juillet - jeudi 6 july 2017

Organized by:

UER Didactics of art and technology
UER Musical Pedagogy and Psychology
University of Teacher Education of the canton of Vaud
In collaboration with :
The EA 3402 ACCRA Host Team
(Contemporary approaches to artistic creation and reflection)
and the Higher School of Teaching and Education,
University of Strasbourg
Center of competences of 2CR2D

Questioning the articulation between creation and research and its contribution to the teaching of artistic and technical disciplines requires first of all to situate the debate in relation to creation by positioning
epistemological, ontological and poietic.
The views on creation focus on the relation to creative practices and the construction of knowledge that flows from them.
Thus, our reflections and our research investigate methodologies
researches used to access and better explain the traces of
creative process.
This summer academy at the HEP Vaud explores didactic perspectives by focusing on a desire to create creators using training in arts and technology and questions the territory of research-creation for its methodological contributions.
The artistic and technical disciplines are related to practices and creative approaches that give rise to the production of objects and the construction of the subject. Thinking of formation to creation thus induces a paradigm shift in the very construction of teaching-learning situations.
