Playing Well with Others: Research Studios at the Cornish College of the Arts

Cornish College of the Arts offers a distinctive blend of visual and performing arts grounded in a core curriculum of humanities and sciences. Cornish offers a Bachelor of Music degree and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in art, dance, design, music, performance production and theater.

With a focus on the visual and performing arts, and a faculty/student population of visual/aural/kinesthetic learners, our patrons’ interests are often “making and doing,” rather than engaging in conventional academic research. Consequently, our librarians collaborate with faculty to align students’ own practices in the studio/performance space with more traditional academic research processes.

This interactive panel will demonstrate three lo-fi pedagogical techniques that we use in our discipline-specific research studios. Use of the term research studio is intentional
-- the Library brings the concept of the studio as a place of creative practice -- into students’ research practice.
