The Future-Proofing the Creative Arts in Higher Education Scoping Study was established to provide evidence-based understanding of doctoral studies in the creative arts in Australian universities upon which future developments in research training would be based, thus advancing strategic leadership in the sector. This study examined the research training conditions primarily in the Australian context and with some selected international examples. The project: provided an evidence-based understanding of PhD and the professional doctorate programs in the creative arts, and more specifically the visual arts in Australia; investigated corresponding programs in a sample of overseas universities; gained a national and international understanding of quality research training methods; identified models of thesis submission for the PhD and the professional doctorate; provided information to enable the establishment of benchmark standards of high quality creative arts doctoral supervision, research training, examination and outcomes; provided recommendations for ongoing cross-institutional and cross-sector collaboration in the design and development of creative arts doctoral studies; and disseminated the project findings through a project web site, liaison with peak bodies and key stakeholders.

Creative writing is a responsive human activity. We use it to respond to the world, to our feelings, to ideas, to observations, to other people, to historical and cultural events, and to the wonders created in our imaginations. This book shows how we go about doing this responding. Contributors discuss practice-led research in creative writing. They look at the ways a writer can use language or employ genre and consider how we each define themes and subjects and use writing techniques to explore to these themes and subjects. In examining creative writing teaching, the contributions gathered here suggest that teaching can be more responsive, more engaged with student interests, and more successful. This book shows that exploring creative writing, through a variety of means, can produce inventive, energetic results that can improve our own creative writing, as well as substantially contribute to our critical understanding of creative writing.

Practice-led Research, Research-led Practice in the Creative Arts

This book addresses one of the most exciting and innovative developments within higher education: the rise in prominence of the creative arts and the accelerating recognition that creative practice is a form of research. The book considers how creative practice can lead to research insights through what is often known as practice-led research. But unlike other books on practice-led research, it balances this with discussion of how research can impact positively on creative practice through research-led practice. The editors posit an iterative and web-like relationship between practice and research. Essays within the book cover a wide range of disciplines including creative writing, dance, music, theatre, film and new media, and the contributors are from the UK, US, Canada and Australia. The subject is approached from numerous angles: the authors discuss methodologies of practice-led research and research-led practice, their own creative work as a form of research, research training for creative practitioners, and the politics and histories of practice-led research and research-led practice within the university. The book will be invaluable for creative practitioners, researchers, students in the creative arts and university leaders. Key Features*The first book to document, conceptualise and analyse practice-led research in the creative arts and to balance it with research-led practice*Written by highly qualified academics and practitioners across the creative arts and sciences *Brings together empirical, cultural and creative approaches*Presents illuminating case histories of creative work and practice-led research
