Curate Your Course

Sheridan Center for Teaching & Learning

This interactive workshop, co-facilitated by Alexandra Poterack (Associate Educator, RISD Museum) and Jessica Metzler (Associate Director, Sheridan Center), considers approaches to organizing and contextualizing course material through an exploration of the way the RISD Museum considers context, curation, display, and pedagogy in its newly reinstalled European galleries. Participants will discuss approaches to making decisions about the inclusion and presentation of course content through examining the effects of different interpretive strategies, and will practice applying a curatorial eye to a work of art or design as a way of reflecting on their own course design process. This workshop is appropriate for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in any discipline. Instructors preparing survey courses might find this session of particular interest. Space is limited.
