Abstract

A growing body of research shows that artsbased teaching and learning has the power to energize and promote student engagement by
increasing opportunities for students to articulate their learning in many different ways. It is particularly effective for students who tend to
struggle with the fast-paced and highly structured nature of mainstream education, which favours primarily cognitive and verbal forms of teaching and assessment. This study contributes to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) by reporting on the learning experiences of third-year child and youth care (CYC) students from an arts-based self-portrait assignment.
