This discussion will exchange ideas and consider innovative art and design pedagogic practices. It will explore alternative ways of discovering physical making and will debate digital making in our current landscape through innovative or less innovative creative methods during the COVID-19; and will inform the diverse and creative societies how our inclusive practices could produce graduates with extensive discipline knowledge and portfolios of high-quality standards.
