The art of teaching and learning
September 30, 2016
A new multiple-location exhibit offered by the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) celebrates the role of creativity in teaching and learning at Queen’s University.
In Creative Expressions, being held Oct. 3-28, numerous artifacts such as course assignments, teaching aids and photos are viewed through a creative lens and will be displayed in spaces across campus.
The exhibit, which commemorates Queen’s 175th anniversary and the CTL’s 25th anniversary, showcases three types of creative expressions:
- Existing Expressions – artifacts consist of student work and a variety of teaching and learning artifacts from Queen’s alumni, faculty and staff.
- Sponsored Expressions – artifacts have been funded or partly-funded by the Centre for Teaching and Learning to create new expressions of teaching and learning.
- Collaborative Expressions – A work of art to be facilitated by artist and 2001 BFA graduate Aleks Bartosik during Homecoming (Oct. 14-16) that will take shape in response to the question: “What are the characteristics of your favorite teaching/learning experience at Queen’s?”
Along with Bartosik’s contribution, other interactive components will be added for Homecoming, including We Built this City at Ontario Hall and Not Just a Violin at the Isabel Bader Centre for Performing Arts.
Exhibition booklets and passport/maps will be available for the month of October in F200 Mackintosh Corry. Tour passports can be stamped at the various exhibit locations and then returned for a chance to win one of 10 prizes, each consisting of a pair of tickets that can redeemed at a future performance at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts. Details about the draw may be found on the passport/maps.
