Mary Beattie, OISE/UT

A Narrative, Arts-Based Pedagogy:  Connecting the Arts and Humanities to Programmes in Higher Education

Narrative approaches to research and pedagogy are gaining prominence across the disciplines of the university – education, history, art history, sociology, psychology, literary studies, engineering, nursing and medicine.  This is because of the growing recognition of the importance of narrative in the development of self–knowledge, in human communication and interactions, in creativity and culture, and in intercultural matters.  Criteria for professional accreditation and innovative university programmes reflect these changes as we acknowledge that practitioners, who work with human beings, need to know a lot more than the specialized knowledge and current practices of their fields of study.

This presentation will focus on the Narrative Pedagogy developed for the education of researchers and practitioners who will:

  • experience Narrative Inquiry directly through the processes of doing Self-Study Research and Writing a Narrative.
  • Learn the Methods of Narrative Inquiry Research through this, and through collaboration in each other’s inquiries.

Mary Beattie is Professor Emeritus of Education in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at OISE/University of Toronto. She is an internationally-renowned scholar working in narrative and arts-based approaches to research, pedagogy and curriculum. She’s particularly interested in a humanistic and holistic approach to learning and teaching at all levels.  She teaches a course for Masters and Doctoral students at OISE/UT called Narrative in Research and Professional Practice.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.  For more information, and to RSVP, contact Mary Fenessey (416) 586-4800 x 8714
