Group for Learning in Art and Design Symposium

The GLAD symposium will discuss the pedagogy of art and design against the new conditions of a market-driven sector in which teaching and learning practices will also confront notions of value, cost and price.

Confirmed speakers include:

National Teaching Fellows Dr Alison Shreeve and Terry Finnigan, Sally Taylor Director of the London Centre for Arts and Cultural Exchange, Steve Harvey Managing Director, FoundationCampus, Cambridge Education Group and Dr Alison Prendiville, Deputy Director of Centre for Competitive Creative Design, C4D.


  • Working more routinely in partnerships and in new configurations of practice;

  • Working with business models within HE art and design and what this means for our practice;

  • Resilience – the way academics, leaders and managers will learn to respond to the new environment;

  • How we sustain our commitment to innovation, diversity and widening participation.
