Full title: Teaching as Creative Practice What does it mean to teach as creative practice? This course will engage graduate students in the exploration and application of teaching, curriculum development and assessment strategies. Teaching will be approached as creative practice, modeling experiential approaches, employing readings, educational tools and frameworks that reinforce open-ended exploration of teaching and learning, emphasizing critical thinking, inquiry, reflection, collaboration. Students are encouraged to make connections to their own artistic practice and process as a learner. The class will investigate a diversity of contexts and teaching roles for artists, including higher and secondary education, museum and community education programs in the Bay Area. A class wordpress blog site will be set up to facilitate reflection, exchange and resource dissemination.
