Since the 1930's Mid-America College Art Association has provided a forum for the artists/teachers of America to discuss and debate the issues of our profession, to share ideas and information of mutual benefit and to affirm the friendships and collegiality that bind us together. We are made up of art faculty, art historians, independent scholars, artists, museum professionals, and affiliate organizations; our conferences also invite graduate students to participate.
Immersive Learning and Creating a Culture of Engagement
Immersive learning–is it just another buzzword? Interdisciplinary, student–driven, collaborative learning, with community partnership are all part of immersive learning. Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience and a reflection on doing. Engagement requires a two-way process. Let us move away from the buzzwords and focus on ways that art and design students can venture into new territories as part of their studies in direct and meaningful ways. What does engagement look like? How do we do it? This session is to share best practices, pitfalls, and successes, while supporting new ideas.Send proposals to Session Chair, Barbara Giorgio, Ball State University, firstname.lastname@example.org
