Trust-Events in the Art of Pedagogy is the culmination of the inaugural Pratt/VACI Fellowship and is also supported by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Department of Fine Arts. This project introduces trust-events to the field of art pedagogy, providing examples and analysis. Trust-events are concrete moments in space and time that form the foundation of a healthy student-teacher relationship. By focusing on crafting a sequence of trust-events rather than reaching learning objective benchmarks, educators may approach curricular design with greater sensitivity to students’ growth and needs.
