Teaching Design

Spring 2022

Taught By: Cotter Christian

Section: A

CRN: 12007

Credits: 3

Teaching cultivates understanding and offers an opportunity to share knowledge with others. In this class, you’ll be introduced to the discipline of design education, including its history and contemporary teaching philosophies such as inclusive, contemplative, trauma-informed, universal design, and antiracist pedagogies. By reflecting on your own learning experiences, we’ll explore topics such as writing project briefs and syllabi, assessment and grading, critique methods, curriculum development, and alternative delivery methods. This class will combine exercises, observations, and guest visits with discussions and project-based learning. For students interested in pursuing teaching in the future at a full or part-time capacity, this class will help you develop a teaching philosophy statement, portfolio, and other materials to apply specifically for art and design teaching positions in higher education.

Open to: all university graduate level students.
