The experience of using digital technology tools and platforms for auto-ethnographic research into the creative process
I am interested in reflective practices and processes, digital technology and how we teach and learn the creative process. My background is in fine art with a developed specialism in textiles, focused on drawing and mixed media. I am a lecturer for textiles, fashion, interior design and design disciplines at University Centre Blackburn College. I am also a PhD student based in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow and a Hunterian Associate with The Hunterian museum where some of my digital auto-ethnographic research took place. My research area is education research and interdisciplinary approaches focusing on technology, the arts and reflective process. The PhD explores themes around conversational reflection and how technology can support and enhance creative and reflective processes.
What you'd like to gain from the day:
Contact details of those interested in conducting their own digital auto-ethnographic research into their practice:
• To reflect on creative practice
• To form creative practice
• To communicate creative practice
Potential participants will be encouraged to share their own auto-ethnographic journeys with others through a community blog/via process arts. With appropriate consent forms future interviews with participants for my PhD research.
