The D-TRACES will investigate the Siobhan Davies digital archive patterns of usage and develop a model for embedding the archive within the Personal Development Planning (PDP) element of the undergraduate dance curriculum at Coventry University.

Dance teaching resource and collaborative engagement spaces (D-TRACES)

The aim of D-TRACES is to enhance the students’ experience of working with online resources for application and transfer to other learning situations whilst providing a model for application in the wider HE sector and in disciplines other than dance. The project will illustrate ways in which students can engage meaningfully with resources which offer alternative modes of knowledge generation; in this case film content of dance rehearsals and performances, artist sketches, journals etc.

By embedding the resource within students' Personal Development Plan (PDP) , the project will address broader agendas including employability and provide expanded and imaginative means for students to capture, document, review and present their learning and their career aspirations.
