ADE-623 College Teaching: Practicum

3 Credits

This course examines the theories and practice of teaching and learning in art and design in the context of higher education through research and observation in Pratt studios and workshops. This course examines studio pedagogy, assessment criteria and methodologies, and studio critique through observation. The course will be divided into two parts: a practicum that allows students to observe, and a seminar that examines contemporary pedagogical approaches and the synthesis of theory and practice in the studios and workshops. Faculty host an observer and provide opportunities for observation. Students taking this class can expect to complete between 45-75 hours of fieldwork. The course builds a strong foundation for students interested in teaching at the college level and welcomes students from all majors. It will include fieldwork research, discussion, and project-based work assignments.
