The post disciplinary digital practitioner.
Malins, Julian; Pengelly, Jon; Marshall, John
As new models of digital practice emerge, new pedagogies are being developed which are adopting a transdisciplinary approach to learning. The paper examines the concept of transdisciplinarity drawing on a range of examples from the USA and Europe. There are a number of institutional barriers and constraints that challenge progress towards a new digital Bauhaus. The tension between acquiring haptic and digital skills is also an important consideration. The tension we refer to arises from the need for students to acquire an understanding of elements of form, colour and spatial awareness, skills which are acquired through making, whilst at the same time acquiring digital skills. Examples of digital practitioners who have embraced a transdisciplinary approach are highlighted.
