Promoting Resilience in Higher Education
The authentic case from Charles Darwin University is now available at - https://www.stayingbrite.edu.au/authentic-cases.
Among the artefacts there are insightful art works from students at CDU showing their thoughts about resilience, inspired by Lisa and Al's arts-based approach in professional learning workshops. Here's an example -
"Can’t all be made of brick because then you can’t grow"
"Need pants made of bricks to have a stable and strong bottom half. They can be heavy to walk in, so with strength comes difficulty.
You also need a barrier of self-protection on the chest, but not brick Armor because you can’t cover all of you because then you can’t be open to change and growth (so you need vulnerability) – the capacity to take risks.
You also have the sun, which is a source of support and allows trees and flowers to grow on the top half all the while the brick pants are keeping you stable."
