The CA²RE for... final (online) multiplier event on 16 June 2022 will look back on the CA²RE+ project and its impact; and look forward to continuing a meaningful dialogue within the ever-growing Community for Artistic and Architectural Research Evaluation. Highlighting the outcomes of the CA²RE+ project, the event will give a live demonstration of a CA²RE+ presentation and review concept, provide a space for reflection and discussion and feature a panel of PhD candidates, reviewers, project coordinators and policy makers exploring the future of Collective Evaluation of Artistic and Design-driven Doctoral Training.

CA²RE stands for Community for Artistic and Architectural Research Evaluation. The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership CA²RE+ was created to develop collective learning environments through the Evaluation of Design Driven Doctoral Training. Design Driven Doctoral research (DDDr) is presented as a multidisciplinary example of an experiential learning-through-evaluation model. Recognised as an appropriate model for identification and promoting the relevance of research singularity, it is valued for its transparency and recognition to award excellence in doctoral training for creative and culturally rooted solutions of contemporary design-driven developments.

The CA²RE community builds on and extends the work begun through the ADAPT-r network since 2012, and the CA²RE+ strategic partnership has enriched and intensified this network since September 2019. It has provided opportunity for a creative refreshment of qualitative research for doctoral researchers, creative practitioners, evaluators, multidisciplinary course/programme developers and education policymakers. Sharing and comparing doctoral training across research traditions and cultures within the core areas, dealing with creativity and culture, has led to transparency and the recognition of tacit skills and qualifications. The development of collective evaluation courses will contribute to promoting and rewarding excellence in teaching and skills development. The explication of tacit knowledge from evaluation experience through a multimedia database contributes to the consolidation and improvement of evidence-building within higher education.

Register to experience the live demonstration of the CA²RE+ concept in practice, and actively contribute to the discussion.

Registration is free of charge.

Who is it for?
