Course content

Portfolio: Research offers students tools to embrace, explore and analyse their own artistic identity in relation to the dance field. The main activities are reading, discussing and writing. The texts are read together. The texts are related to the dance field and are related to current and social developments.

Students are encouraged to contextualise their artistic practice by situating it within this network of references. Through a series of writing assignments and presentations, students are asked to link their own artistic practice to the propositions in the (textual) material. They are encouraged to clearly highlight some of their artistic topics and themes in order to initiate a more in-depth investigation, both in their artistic practice and in their artistic research.

Study material (text): Mandatory

  • Every student must have a laptop for blended learning (online and offline classes)
  • See Trotter (study guide)

Evaluation (text)

80% portfolio
20% permanent evaluation

The 'portfolio' part consists of four assignments:

Some remarks about the 'permanent evaluation':
The student must be present 2/3 during this course unit.
During this course, the permanent evaluation takes place.
The permament evaluation is both a assesment method and a partial examination.

With less than 2/3 presence in the classes, the student gets 0/20 for the assessment method and for the partial examination 'permanent evaluation'. For the assessment method and the partial examination 'permanent evaluation', a second examination is not possible.

Conditions of legitimate absence (legitimate absence are not counted inside the 2/3)
- An absence supported by a medical certificate
- An absence that was requested in advance and approved by the programme head/artistic coordinator
