Deep in thought: some tools for self-regulated learning in higher education, Susan
Ryland, University for the Creative Arts.
This paper will discuss how the cognitive ‘tools’ of metaphor, metonymy and literality can be used to generate new narratives in self-regulated learning within Higher Education. A case study will show how the artwork ‘Core Sample’ – a literal core-sample taken through a stack of Encyclopaedia Britannica -was developed from the geological knowledge metaphor ‘deep in thought’ for the exhibition ‘Soundings: thought over time’.

Here is a link to a diagrammatic version of the literal-metaphor continuum illustrated with examples from contemporary art.
