An in-depth investigation into an important, controversial but overlooked subject in learning and teaching practice.
The primary focus of this research is an exploration of ways in which we might align and enrich our appreciation of ethics as a relational attitude that underpins teaching, learning and the preparation for professional practice in dance. Valuable contributions have been gathered from a range of practicing academics with current experience of teaching in the disciplinary field of dance in UK Higher Education institutions. Particular attention has been given to the value of the use of touch as an important feature of dance based lifelong learning. The report also includes a literature review detailing pertinent references to philosophy, education, ethics, and dance. The aim of this inclusion is to build an open field of thinking in order to underpin further developments of the project.
