Mapping and Forecasting the Change Agenda in Scottish Art and Design Education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In part one of this paper I draw on Marshall McLuhan’s now infamous idiom ‘the medium is the message’ in order to help capture current art and design educational discourses and practices in Scottish secondary education. I then move in part two to capture the many initiatives that are beginning to point so positively towards a new era for Scottish secondary art and design education- the growth in uptake in Higher* photography as illustrated in Table 1.0 is an example of one such initiative. Central to this observation is the realisation that if you change the medium you somehow change the message thus allowing new discourses and new art and design practices to emerge.
