Between: Embodiment in Science Teaching
Workshop and Discussion
Between: Embodiment in Science Teaching is a free, discipline specific workshop sponsored by the Higher Education Academy and the School of Biomedical Sciences, King's College London.
The workshop will explore the definitions and role of embodiment in science
teaching and science practice. It complements the exhibition “Between” at the Inigo rooms, King’s College London, which features works by artists Susan Aldworth, Karen Ingham and Andrew Carnie.
The workshop will draw speakers from a range of disciplines with the aim of
developing a broad discussion on:
- How we talk about and teach science?
- How are aspects of expertise and knowledge conferred within the gestures, movements, depictions and objects of scientific practice?
- How can understanding these elements of embodiment inform science learning and teaching?
The discipline focus will be anatomy, the brain and biomedical sciences reflecting the themes of the Between exhibition, which will be open during the workshop.
An early evening discussion with the Between artists on the nature of embodiment in art and science will be chaired by Martha Fleming and will be open to both workshop delegates and the general public.
Numbers at this workshop will be limited to 30 and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
