Looking-Out is a major research project being undertaken by the Art Design Media Subject Centre (ADM-HEA) on behalf of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as part of the government’s Creative Britain: New Talents for a New Economy strategy paper published in February, 2008.

In the light of this growing recognition of the valuable contribution our Creative and Cultural Industries make to the UK economy, Looking-Out focuses on levels of engagement between Higher Education and the Creative and Cultural industries.

Organise a focus group within your institution to enable Teacher-practitioners, academics and students to discuss their expectations, perceptions and experiences.

Additional Information Additional Information : The Looking Out project was initiated through the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) Creative Economy Programme (CEP) in response to Commitment 4 of Creative Britain: New Talents for the New Economy, in which the university was asked to “undertake a major research project to survey the landscape of employer engagement in higher education subjects closely related to creative and cultural industries”. The Looking Out research project, undertaken by the Higher Education Academy Art, Design, Media Subject Centre (ADM-HEA), was initiated to discover how and in what ways Arts HE does engage, how effective the engagement is and what might be done to enhance its effectiveness. In particular, the research explored the work of teacher practitioners in HE, known to be a large number of individuals working within creative and cultural industry and contributing to the student learning experience through teaching, acting as external examiners, work-based learning coordinators, visiting lecturers and contributing to industry liaison panels.
