Visioning the Future focusses on the Artistic Doctorate in Ireland in the Performing Arts (Dance, Music and Theatre) and Film/Screen Media. The project asks how and what we can learn from previous practice and research into the pedagogies and potential of the Artistic Doctorate, and especially, how this relates to the unique ecology of Ireland. Informed by developments in the wider European environment, the project aims to contribute to the development of national policy and protocol supporting the establishment of best practices in the sector, including a collection of free downloadable Open Educational Resources for students, supervisors, and examiners.
