Group for Learning in Art and Design (GLAD)

This page is no longer being updated (as of January 2012).


The Group for Learning in Art and Design (GLAD) was established in 1990. It is a non-affiliated group of academics representing art, design and media from across higher education institutions plus colleagues from the specialist further education sector.

GLAD’s remit is to engender discussion about best practice in developing the student experience in art, design and media and, in particular, to promote and stimulate debate and consideration of developments in the teaching and learning of the subject.
