Join us for a day of talks and workshops on the topic of how (and why) we teach writing and composition in the Fine Arts, hosted by Molly-Claire Gillett and Sandra Huber, Interdisciplinary Studies and Practices in the Fine Arts, FoFA, Concordia University.
Writing has always been one step in the future. From emojis to slang to song, writing has momentum, and it is up to us as educators to find ways of moving with it. In the light of current concerns about technology and the changing relevance of traditional writing techniques, how can our assignments and pedagogical investment adapt?
Join us to explore expanded practices of research and writing in postsecondary Fine Arts, with an emphasis on foundational, interdisciplinary, and practice-based courses. Writing has always been a changeable medium with an ambiguous role in arts practice — how can we as educators work and adapt with it in a classroom context while inviting students to do the same?
