  Learning is Risky, An ArtsFusion Lecture  
(Arts)

ICAT Day showcases transdisciplinary creative research generated by the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology

Learn more about the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology's research and meet the faculty and students who are crossing traditional discipline boundaries to develop new possibilities for exploration, expression, and creativity during ICAT Day on Monday, May 6.

The collection of events, which are free and open to the public, showcase the work and ideas that have been generated from the institute's faculty and students during the spring semester. The schedule of events will include:

This talk and panel discussion for students and educators of all levels is designed to identify the challenges within educational systems and explore new perspectives of learning. For example, by being attuned to students, including how they engage in the learning process, educators might find a fresh perspective for student interaction, as well as how students interact with each other and respond to the experiences provided for them in the classroom. Not a conversation about standards of learning or identifying the wrongs, rather, the purpose is to discuss how to be proactive, which could include taking a few risks to empower both students and teachers. Researchers at the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology are designing experiences that allow for creative inquiry, time for design and development, and space for exploration and play across many fields of study.

This ArtsFusion Lecture is led by Liesl Baum, head of the institute's IDEA Studio, where research initiatives explore the merging of science and engineering with art and design, as well as the implications for teaching and learning at multiple levels. The IDEA Studio focuses on the many facets of design and its role in the learning process. The presentation will include a panel discussion looking at education from a variety of perspectives.
