Title Immersive art pedagogy: (Re)connecting artist, researcher and teacher
Author(s) Burke, G

Abstract This study explores and describes Immersive Art Pedagogy (IAP). What IAP entails, reveals, and contests is examined via three sites of investigation. This leads to an evolving model through which IAP and its ability to (re)connect artist, researcher and teacher was developed. The three sites are understood as creative worlds and each creative world enacts IAP through its contextually unique location.
• Creative World 1 explores IAP within a community art context.
• Creative World 2 investigates IAP through an art elective for pre-service educators.
• Creative World 3 explores IAP through art making as an artist within multi-settings.
The study is presented as an Exegesis and an Arts-based Project. The Exegesis contains written and visual text that describes each creative world’s contribution to the development of Immersive Art Pedagogy through the lens of artist/researcher/teacher. The Project is presented as a Photo Book where the evolving model for Immersive Art Pedagogy both inspires, and is informed by, the candidate’s artwork from Creative World 3, and by reflexive a/r/tographic responses to the process. The Project is informed by the practical and theoretical data and by the evolving model through which each creative world is reflexively analysed within the Exegesis. An outcome of the study is the evolving IAP model and the concept of Sustaining Creativity and Creating Sustainability through IAP.
