STEM + Choreography: Ensemble, embodied resources for sensemaking and learning


This talk centers how embodied theories of learning, informed by the artistic practices of dancers, can reframe what is learned in STEAM spaces and how it can be learned (and analyzed). Across three studies, Vogelstein demonstrates how incorporating ensemble-based, choreographic practices into STEM learning environments expands learners’ sensemaking resources (e.g., movement proposals and responses) and supports learning by both youth and adult researchers alike. Choreographic inquiry practices offer new ways to support embodied STEM learning that center equitable forms of ensemble participation, while broadening the domain-specific conceptual terrain in ways that are generative for the Learning Sciences.
