Resilience and Ethics in Dance Education (REDE) is a research project initiated by the academy of dance, at Oslo National Academy of Arts (KHiO). The REDE project aims to empower dance students and strengthen their future professional potential. The project will approach this vision by exploring means and strategies for learning that can strengthen the learning environment in dance and educate resilient, reflective and ethically aware dance artists who can work sustainably and professionally, both independently and as part of collective processes.
The REDE scoping review is a sub-project within the REDE umbrella, an important step to create a research -based foundation of the state of the art for future REDE projects. Research evidence synthesis involves the aggregation of available information using well-defined and transparent methods to search, summarize, and interpret a body of research literature. The REDE Scoping review aim to answering broad questions and describe existing literature and other sources of information i.e., master and phd thesis) on REDE relevant topics and would include findings from a range of different study designs and methods. As the field of Dance Science is a relatively new research area, a scoping review can be a particularly useful approach as there exists few comprehensively reviewed topics.
Specifically, the REDE scoping review aimed at and have worked with:
✓ To examine how research is conducted in the two REDE topics (methodology)
✓ To identify the types of available evidence in the field of (a) teaching and learning in dance and (b) dance and mental health
✓ To identify key characteristics or factors related to the two REDE topics in order to inform best practice
✓ To identify and analyses knowledge gaps and to prepare future research
Format: The symposium will be a 2-hour session with presentation and discussions (hybrid; physical in auditorium and digital at zoom).
