Teaching with Images

Will Schmenner, CTL Graduate Fellow, History of Art

Wednesday, April 17 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: An image can be historically significant, culturally meaningful, formally innovative or politically motivated. Sometimes it is all of those things and more. This workshop will focus on strategies for getting the most out of the images that you use in class. We will discuss the tension between the directions a rich image can take a class and the drawbacks of overwhelming students. We will also consider the advantages and disadvantages of complex versus simple images. Participants are encouraged to bring images that they have taught with or anticipate teaching with to the workshop.
