Anna is the co-applicant of two successful grants recently on using the senses in educational environments, from primary school through to higher education, which will enable her to develop some of the work she has done through the Making Clinical Sense project and A Sensory Education especially.
SensesSquared is funded through the Erasmus+ Cooperation partnerships. It’s full title is “SensesSquared: Becoming through the senses: towards artistic ways of being in the world”, and it is led by Hans Van Regenmortel from Musica Impulscentrum voor Muziek vzw (BE). The project explores sensory interventions in teaching in primary schools in Belgium, Portugal, Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands.
Senses-Based Learning is funded through the NRO Comenius grants, and the PI for that project is Emilie Sitzia, and includes Ilse van Lieshout from Marres and Joost Dijkstra from Maastricht University as the other co-applicants. This project will look at how training the senses can be given a more prominent role in higher education and how you can assess students in this field. Eventually it will lead to an online platform and set up an actual physical space (the Sensory Learning Lab).
