[Yasmin_discussions] The best argument for STEAM you will ever read

Dear Yasminers,

Here is a link to an editorial that came out in the Guardian
today -- and it is the best argument for STEAM you will
ever read:

The protocol document for interdisciplinary research at the crossroads of
art, science and technology aims to provide useful references and
guidelines for institutions, funding bodies, individual researchers and
interdisciplinary research groups. The document takes into account a wide
number of experiences and visions on interdisciplinary work. It is an open
document under ongoing reviewing and discussion.
This document presents guidelines for institutions, funding bodies,
interdisciplinary researchers and groups. It is the result of the exchange
of experiences and the theoretical discussion among the participants in two
workshops
The first draft was edited by Simon Penny, based on input from participants
in Synergies Workshop on Interdisciplinary Research June 28-30 2013, and
especially Roc Parés, Mara Balestrini and Swen Seebach.
The second draft was edited by Tere Badia and Marta Gracia, based on inputs
from participants in WIRKT Workshop on Interdisciplinary Research and
Knowledge Transfer July 10-12 2014, and especially Swen Seebach and Josep
Perelló.
The Writing group on the Interdisciplinary Research and Knowledge Transfer
and participants of the WgIRKT Workshop in April 15.-17., 2015 are: Tere

The Protocol for Interdisciplinary Research and Knowledge Transfer was
developed within the framework of the European Culture Project SOFT CONTROL
(2012-15) in under the lead of HANGAR Visual Arts Centre.

Re: [Yasmin_discussions] How to train STEAM teams

Yasminers

For a long time I have used multi-discipline group projects for this. Always important to teach something about team working as a preliminary and to take an active role in team selection - not just a collection of friends but a balanced set of skills and interests. The information below is a bit old so some URL links no longer work but the relevant things are there.

Both of the examples below come from masters courses that allowed any discipline to enroll, so the working together across disciplines was easy to include as a major feature.

(1) In a course on interactive art the project report is specified here:
http://research.it.uts.edu.au/creative/eae/intart/reports.htm
The course specification said:
"When the project is undertaken in a group, for the second assessment, students will be assessed as a team, where each member of the team will receive the same mark for the assignment, plus an individual mark determined by your tutor taking your individual report on the work into account. If you have trouble with the operation of your group, ask the Subject coordinator for advice (preferably ask as a group). If some of the group feels that other member(s) are not contributing, the tutor should be informed and a group meeting held to produce a solution."

(2) In a multimedia course the assignment was as specified here"
http://research.it.uts.edu.au/creative/eae/MM/MMass2.htm
"The students were also asked to:
Reflect and report upon your role in the team project. What have you learnt?
length: 1-2000 words"

Hope this might help.

Ernest

Re: [Yasmin_discussions] How to train STEAM teams

Hi

During the project Nil by Mouth which focused on food we brought together
scientists from the Scottish Government's Strategic Research Programme Food
Land People Environmental Change with selected artists. Documentation is
here
http://creativefutureshq.com/projects/nil-by-mouth-food-farming-science-and-sustainability/
Through Alex Toland we presented a poster which shows the 'pattern of
interaction' - it was as with too many things done during projects it needs
updated -
https://www.academia.edu/8683547/Nil_by_Mouth_an_art_science_collaboration_on_sustainability_focused_by_food_and_farming

Nil by Mouth has led to further work between the teams and probably to
enduring relationships.

I've also worked on 'design innovation' projects and sandpits/chiasmas can
be effective starting points.

But through that work I discovered the evaluation approach of Nutley and
Meagher focused on Knowledge Exchange which I believe is particularly
relevant. They look for 5 forms of impact:
Instrumental
Capacity Building
Conceptual
Cultural/Attitudinal
Enduring Connectivity

Now we might debate whether the UK Policy around Knowledge Exchange has
anything to do with STEM to STEAM or multi/inter/trans disciplinary
collaboration, but I believe that Nutley and Meagher are offering a
robustly analysed range of possible outcomes which can help in thinking
about training as well as project development.

We wrote up our work here
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/306107259_Impact_by_Design

Re: [Yasmin_discussions] How to train STEAM teams

Dear Roger during my years in Sweden I worked for an Institute called the Interactive Institute. The Institute was financed by the state and by the city of Stockholm. I was a senior research there and we worked active to develop software and applications where scientists artists and ppl from many different fields converged to create clusters of collaboration.
We used the hive as social model and we were working at many fields, digitalización of museums, making clothes adapted to surgeons and health personal loaded with chips recognising their voices and faces etc etc.

[Yasmin_discussions] 1 million $ awarded to 11 art science projects by NAS Keck Futures- good news for stem to steam !!!!

yasminers

some really good news for a change !!

1 million $ awarded to 11 art science projects by NAS Keck Futures- in
USA !!!! this
is part of the larger stem to steam discussion underway internationnally

see:

http://malina.diatrope.com/2017/02/04/1-million-awarded-to-11-art-science-projects-by-nas-keck-futures/

these grants resulted from working groups that met at the keck futures
conference

see for details:

http://www.keckfutures.org/conferences/art-sem/grantees.html

if you check out the descriptions of the projects - it would be great
to have your reactions to this discussion

i guess steam condenses !!!
