Creative Technologies: Dr Sophy Smith

This is an interesting clip where Dr Smith explains how she engages students from a diverse range of disciplines to engage in transdisciplinary learning for creative technologies. She explains how she works on breaking down discipline barriers to learning different approaches by getting the students to identify their own learning styles and processes.  This is done through ‘Adventure sessions’ which aim to build confidence in learning new disciplines.  She explains experiential learning and assessment using Flow theory as well Blooms taxonomy.
