Objectives: The aim of the Creative Arts Learning and Teaching Network (CALTN) is to support and strengthen learning and teaching practice, scholarship and benchmarking among the creative arts disciplines in higher education.

Deliverables: The network set out to stage two learning and teaching symposia in 2012 and 2013 to further promote the endorsed academic standards of the Creative Arts disciplines, and to create a forum for the development of assessment criteria for evaluating graduate outcomes in the creative arts sector.

Outcomes: The CALTN Papers, a refereed publication of the second symposium held in February, 2012, was published through iTunes. Several of the papers presented in the publication have been parts of larger on-going projects. These include the papers presented by the leaders involved in the Griffith University Assessment-in-Music project and those involved in the University of Canberra/University of Central Queensland project investigating examination practices in creative arts doctoral studies.

A longer term objective has been to ensure the network’s continuity beyond this project and this has been facilitated through the establishment of the Australian Council of Deans and Directors of Creative Arts (DDCA), part funded by the CALTN project. The DDCA will provide an umbrella organisation for CALTN and this has led to the establishment of the DDCA website, which will eventually become a hub and resource for learning and teaching initiatives, benchmarking activities and research, for the creative arts disciplines. The inaugural annual conference of the DDCA will be held on 1st October, 2014.
