LOVE LETTERS AS RELATIONAL PEDAGOGIES OF ASSESSMENT


A book chapter co-written with Mark Ingham (UAL) , Liz Buntil (UAL) and Vikki Hill  (QMU), included in the book Towards Postnumanism in Education edited by Jessie A. Bustillos Morales and  Shiva Zarabadi and published by Routlege as part of their series New and Critical Studies in Education.

Abstract


What kind of assessment might emerge if attention is paid to posthuman and collaborative pedagogies? In our chapter we propose a relational praxis to assessment in higher education that builds upon a collaborative, affirmative ethics and that speaks to an embodied and affective experience. We explore alternatives to normative assessment practices in order to resist traditional structures of individualisation, competition and alienation. We reflect on our attempt to dismantle hierarchies through the form of writing ‘love letters’ between each of the four authors. The exchanges, movement and duration implied in the sending, receiving and re-sending of letters to each other by post in a process of posthuman, collaborative writing created a space to think about, and experience, care and joy. It prompted us to consider how we can create joyful experiences for both student and lecturer in assessment. In this chapter we propose such potentia evoked by ‘love letters’ as a ‘relational pedagogy of assessment’.

An imprint

exchanging. being-with. handling reading touching making feeling smelling caring. writing to and with each other. a creation through correspondence and things growing as it was sent back forth and around. paving the way of time feeling the days of space. the waiting and anticipation the not knowing and the revealing. the curiosity of the cats and the dogs and the postperson. what is left behind what spills out and the dilemma of what to do with it. the walking to the post office the weight of the package. the forgetting and remembering in between. the emptying stuff onto the floor the surprises and finding little pockets of things. quiet words in between under inside. sentences that touch and cuddle other sentences echoes of words and feelings. care in folding and love in unfolding. the not being able to fold it back together into the box. the wanting to control the object and organise it and not being in control. the touching of other’s making. the worrying the overwhelm-ness the love and the care. it will be ok. a cacophonous messy growing complex collection of gentleness and tenderness.
