From Medicine to Museum studies, from Physical Computing to Archeology (to name just a few), the education of experts involves attuning, developing and sharpening their senses. Senses-based learning is a pedagogical methodology for tertiary education focusing on exploring and developing sensory skills and critically reflecting on their importance in research and professional practice.

In this 90-minute workshop, Anna Harris and Emilie Sitzia want to open up possibilities for including the senses more in teaching across faculties. They first introduce senses-based learning and the theories behind this project. They then run a hands-on sensory “lesson” in which participants perform being undergraduate medical and art students. Next, participants critically engage with the conditions and possibilities for the lesson as well as share ideas for further sensory experiments/interventions in their own faculties/disciplines. Lastly, they try out some additional sensory exercises which hopefully will inspire participants to include the senses in offline and online teaching formats.​
