USING ESCALA IN YOUR TEACHING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX

21 February 2014

This short introductory workshop, run jointly by ESCALA (Essex Collection of Latin American Art) and Learning and Development, works on the premise that you don’t have to know a lot about art to use it effectively in your teaching, whatever your discipline.

Art-based learning has been used in Higher Education in a range of subjects to promote students’ critical thinking, communication and professional reasoning skills. With a particular focus on the University’s world-renowned Latin American Art collection, this interactive workshop will give you the chance to:

• try out some simple techniques for using visual art to prompt discussion and inquiry
• find out how your colleagues have used works from the collection to enhance their students learning
• discover the resources and support available to you through Learning and Development and ESCALA.

For those who are inspired, we will offer a follow-up session later in the term where you can work with advisors from ESCALA and Learning and Development to develop in more detail ideas for introducing art-based learning into your own modules.

For more information, please see the University of Essex Learning and Development site here.

Date: Friday, 21st February
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
Room: 4SA.6.19
Audience: Academic/teaching-related staff
Facilitators: Gisselle Giron, ESCALA and Kate Dunton, Learning and Development
