Transforming Diversity Tensions: Shifting Knowledge through Arts-Based Practices
Macdonald, Geraldine; MacDonnell, Judith A.
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v1 p35-39 2008
In this paper, the authors engage in a dialogue to illustrate their teaching practice with experiential arts-based diversity learning. The adult education theoretical frameworks of transformative learning/unlearning and experiential learning frame the paper. Examples of experiential arts-based diversity learning include: participating in experiential role-playing during the "animal game," creating paper figures that represent participant diversities, and creating an impromptu human installation.
