Out of the Box

‘Out of the Box’ was learning and teaching project that I ran with Dr. Kym Martindale and Sarah Jane (archivist), which investigated the value of using archives to enhance the student learning experience in Creative Writing. The project ran from January to July 2011 and was internally funded by a £5000 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Award at Falmouth University. We worked with screenwriting students from BA (Hons) English with Creative Writing, in partnership with the Combined University Archives and Special Collections Service at the Falmouth University and University of Exeter Cornwall Campus, and Cornwall Record Office to investigate the enhanced use of archives in creative and pedagogically powerful modes.
