Empathy and the arts; benefits to bilingual students
Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 - 14 minutes
Louise Peacocke from the International Institut of Lancy (IIL) talks to Katt Cullen about the importance of arts in education and how it links to her research on empathy in non-native speakers.
Louise earned her Master's degree in Fine Arts (Sculpture) from The Royal College of Arts in London, and completed her second Master’s degree in Education at the University of Nottingham. Her dissertation for the later focussed on empathy in children in their non-native language and how visual and performing arts supports lasting empathic development in these students.
