Mobile Phones and Creativity
This seminar shares our initial findings from the current LITE Fellowship project which seeks to explore the use of
mobile phones in the curriculum. How might basic functionalities as well as bespoke applications allow for the
development of vernacular creativity? Focusing on outcomes from student-focused projects at University of Leeds and
recent research, we will explore how mobile phones might be seen as an enabling device rather than a distraction to
teaching and learning. Lunch and refreshments provided.
This event is part of the University of Leeds Festival of Teaching
Scott and Maria will be presenting aspects of their research at the International Federation of Theatre Research World Congress in Belgrade on 13th July 2018.
Maria will be delivering the Sonic Body Project, as part of the Being Human: A Festival of the Humanities in November 2018. The Sonic Body will employ Sonolope in developing a multisensory engagement with selected sculptures at Leeds Art Gallery.
