RISD Faculty Workshop: Lines of Thought—Mark Making and Metacognition

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday November 8

12:00 PM  –  1:15 PM

The vital role of drawing as a continual and active process of discovery is explored in the RISD Museum’s exhibition Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now. Participants in this interactive workshop co-facilitated by Alexandra Poterack (Associate Educator, RISD Museum) and Jessica Metzler (Associate Director, Sheridan Center) will utilize the concept of thinking through drawing, as explored in this exhibition, as a departure point for investigating ways of visually interpreting and understanding information gathered from the world around us. We will explore how mark making and drawing can be conceptual tools in encouraging metacognition--helping students understand how they learn in a course. We will also discuss inclusive strategies to engage diverse student learners through creative expression and reflection in courses across the disciplines. This workshop is appropriate for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.


Presented in partnership with Brown University's Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning.
