[LS] Integrative Seminar 2

Summer 2020

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: AL1

CRN: 1288

Credits: 3

In Language Supported Integrative Seminar 2, the skills acquired in Integrative Seminar 1 are expanded through the introduction of a wide variety of research methods–both digital and analog–and in projects that are shared with Integrative Studio 2. Students use digital tools and online platforms along with fieldwork to extend the research and creative problem-solving undertaken in class. Using methods such as interviews, visual research, online sources, libraries, experiments, and first hand observation, students are exposed to the multiple ways in which a topic can be researched. This course offers options that align with the research approaches used within the different schools at Parsons. This Language Supported (LS) course is specially designed for students for whom English is a second language. LS courses have the same content as non-LS courses as well as extra attention to vocabulary, cultural references, and support for reading and writing. Students will engage with the materials in a supportive and dynamic learning environment as they become acclimated to American educational context, culture, and expectations. Parsons LS faculty possess training specific to both the content area and language support focus. Co-requisite(s): PUFY 1003 [LS] Integrative Studio 2 and NELP 1700 or NELP 1800.

Spring 2020

Taught By: Anna Fridlis

Section: AL1

CRN: 3348

Credits: 3

This course aims to challenge old beliefs about what you can do with writing. It invites inquiry and helps you to think about research as an energized idea. In Integrative Seminar 2 you will be encouraged to pursue topics you find perplexing and fascinating. How can curiosity lead you to ask productive questions and get answers to them? How can you create a writing process that is organic and unfolds over time? In the first half of the semester quick assignments will introduce you to a variety of research methods and help you to define an area of interest. In the second half of the semester you will pursue your own research based project connected to studio. Throughout the semester, you will read texts which explore a wide array of forms that researched writing can take. Once again, studio and seminar will come together through a series of bridge projects that highlight the components of the research process: inquiry, context, investigation, interpretation, argument, connections and reflection. Bridge projects are the basis of the collaborative relationship of ideas between the two courses. They ask you to engage with writing as a form of making, and making as a form of thinking, in order to explicitly and productively blur the boundaries between seminar and studio. This section will be framed through the inflection: Systems and Strategies A system is a set of individual things working together in a network. A strategy is a plan or action. This prompt explores design's role in shifting the social, environmental, and economic impacts of individuals, groups, communities and organizations. How can we use design strategies to promote change, foster creativity, and re-imagine the experiences dictated by a broad range of established systems? This Language Supported (LS) course is specially designed for students for whom English is a second language. LS courses have the same content as non-LS courses as well as extra attention to vocabulary, cultural references, and support for reading and writing.

This section will be framed through the inflection: Constructed Environments A constructed environment is a surrounding, made by human or animal, built for an activity. How do constructed environments inform and shape our sense of reality? Can we facilitate transformative human experiences through the products we design and the spaces we build? We will explore the ways that light and materials affect our environments. We will consider how the energy and resources we use change us. Our goal is to combine the interconnectedness of large-scale thinking with social engagement as a way to understand a variety of design approaches.

In Integrative Seminar 2 you will be encouraged to pursue topics you find perplexing and fascinating. How can curiosity lead you to ask productive questions and get answers to them? How can you create a writing process that is organic and unfolds over time? In the first half of the semester quick assignments will introduce you to a variety of research methods and help you to define an area of interest. In the second half of the semester you will pursue your own research based project connected to studio. Throughout the semester, you will read texts which explore a wide array of forms that researched writing can take. Once again, studio and seminar will come together through a series of bridge projects that highlight the components of the research process: inquiry, context, investigation, interpretation, argument, connections and reflection. Bridge projects are the basis of the collaborative relationship of ideas between the two courses. They ask you to engage with writing as a form of making, and making as a form of thinking, in order to explicitly and productively blur the boundaries between seminar and studio. This section will be framed through the inflection: Visual Culture Visual culture refers to images that surround us. Meaning is embedded in the endless images, spaces, and artifacts that make up our visual culture. How can we learn to unearth the ideas being communicated through a broad range of forms – art, advertisements, products, fashion, photography, illustration, architecture, performance, technology etc. What new and unexpected forms demand our scrutiny? This Language Supported (LS) course is specially designed for students for whom English is a second language. LS courses have the same content as non-LS courses as well as extra attention to vocabulary, cultural references, and support for reading and writing. Students will engage with the materials in a supportive and dynamic learning environment as they become acclimated to American educational context, culture, and expectations. Parsons LS faculty possess training specific to both the content area and language support focus. Co-requisite: PUFY 1003 Integrative Studio 2 [Language Supported].
