Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Apr 25, 2014
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Vicky Karaiskou, Art History, will present “Teaching ‘Blended’ Art Classes at an Online University." For more than ten years, Karaiskou has taught art courses in the Department of Hellenic Culture at the Open University of Cyprus.  She joins us this year to do art-related faculty development work at the Serie Center and to teach in Macalester’s Art History Department. In this talk, Karaiskou outlines the advantages she has observed while teaching art at an online/blended university. She argues that virtual space definitely fosters engagement and reflection on the parts of students and, curiously, promotes discussion. All faculty welcome. Lunch will be provided.
