Meta-Design As A Pedagogical Framework For Encouraging Student Agency And Democratizing The Classroom, Christopher Hethrington 2015 Emily Carr University of Art & Design

Meta-Design As A Pedagogical Framework For Encouraging Student Agency And Democratizing The Classroom, Christopher Hethrington

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

As diverse social and economic pressures are applied to post-secondary education, innovative approaches to pedagogical methodology are required. Given that the new norm in both industry and academia is that of constant change, a flexible and responsive approach is required along with a framework that empowers students with the skills to become independent thinkers and lifelong learners. Meta-design is a conceptual framework that can provide that flexibility and empower students with greater agency in their education.

Ethos

“You don’t mind posing?” Cléo asks.

Dorotheé quips back, “No, why?”

“I’d be so exposed, afraid they’d find a fault.”

“Nonsense! My body makes me happy, not proud. They’re looking at more than just me. A shape, an idea. It’s as if I wasn’t there, like I was asleep.”

Author Peter Schuler discusses his thoughts on how ideas of creativity, literature, and pedagogy helped to develop into his first novel, John Spaghotte of Crumb. Schuler is a native of the Coachella Valley in Southern California and writes from a middle-class appreciation of working and living in an area where everything is catered to the wealthy class. Through personal injury and his experience in undergraduate and graduate studies he fought to develop a healthy critical mind and a grasp as to the true nature of identity. As a result, his riveting debut novel about a young, nerdy California version of ...

Storytelling In Art Museums, Hayley P. Trinkoff 2015 Seton Hall University

Storytelling In Art Museums, Hayley P. Trinkoff

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Storytelling, in the context of art museums, is a method of communicating the qualities and attributes of art through a story. It helps the visitor bring the work of art to life and understand something the eye cannot see, a compelling narrative. It is important for visitors to discuss art and share stories on tours and through virtual media. We learn and form our own meanings from stories. These interactions will help build more relationships within communities. It is the museum’s job to take visitors on a journey and introduce them to new objects and perspectives.

This thesis addresses ...

Classrooms As Creative Learning Communities: A Lived Curricular Expression, Soon Ye Hwang 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Classrooms As Creative Learning Communities: A Lived Curricular Expression, Soon Ye Hwang

Theses, Student Research, and Creative Activity: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Creativity—the fundamental basis of human experience, expression, and learning in the communal world of the classroom—is the primary concern of this dissertation. While creativity is one of the buzzwords of 21st century education the world over, its lived understanding as fundamental to being human is understudied. This gap calls attention to the significances for all involved of entering into meaning making as creators. To explore the significances, I draw upon and give expression to my experiences of building such creative learning communities (CLC) in my own Multicultural Education (ME) classrooms as a teacher educator and curriculum theorist ...


Fostering The Efficacious Adolescent Artist, Regina Beltowski 2015 Western Michigan University

Fostering The Efficacious Adolescent Artist, Regina Beltowski

Master's Theses

Low self-esteem and insecurity is common among adolescents. In the secondary-school art room, students often stop engaging in art practice, believing that they lack talent, when the truth is that they lack specific skills. Students who are fortunate to have teachers who help them develop their skills experience a boost in feelings of self-efficacy, and often reengage with art production. This thesis project focuses on strengthening students’ self-efficacy in the visual arts at the secondary level. Clarifying the differences between related terms – self-esteem, self-concept, and perceived control – I focus on self-efficacy as a characteristic that plays a significant role in ...

Choice--‐Based Art: Students Who Create, Not Replicate, Hillary K. Moczerad 2015 Western Michigan University

Choice--‐Based Art: Students Who Create, Not Replicate, Hillary K. Moczerad

Master's Theses

The problem that I researched in today’s art education world is how to teach our art students to be problem solving, confident, independent thinkers. It seems that in a classroom that is supposed to be full of innovation and creativity, it is currently falling flat. Through research, I discovered a teaching methodology called Choice-­‐Based Art that claims to eliminate these problems in the art room through student-­‐directed learning and choice while still delivering art curriculum. In order to test these theories, I aligned my classroom with the demands of the methodology and planned a field test with ...

A/R/Tography As A Guide For Curriculum Design, Michelle M. Hrbek 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A/R/Tography As A Guide For Curriculum Design, Michelle M. Hrbek

Theses, Student Research, and Creative Activity: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

A/r/tography is not a method for curriculum development. Rather curriculum designers who see themselves as artist, researcher, and teacher best serve their students by creating lessons and units that encourage the learners to discover the a/r/tographer in themselves. Students who research themes presented in the visual arts classroom, create images that build on their personal experiences and communicate their individual perspective, and then teach others about their process are more likely to have relevant visual arts experiences. This paper explains the idea of a/r/tography and shows how a/r/tography as an overarching guide ...

Art And Art Education In The Multicultural Society Of South Korea, Yoonjung Kang 2015 Ewha Womans University

Art And Art Education In The Multicultural Society Of South Korea, Yoonjung Kang

Journal of Art for Life

The purpose of this article is to examine how the goals and practices of multicultural art education in South Korea may be expanded in order to address current issues related to cultural diversity in society. In traditionally homogenous South Korea public communication and multicultural education have focused on the need for culturally different “others” to assimilate, an approach that has failed to cultivate understanding and tolerance in students. Art education may be a tool to rectify this disparity. Incorporating contemporary South Korean art that reflects cultural diversity issues can play an important role in educating students about cultural diversity, since ...
