  4. 4. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: The Essential Character of Making Things Craft, concept and thinking are synthesized in the act of making Thoughtfully working with our hands is a creative act The shops must be integrated into curriculum Shops should evolve to incorporate mechanical engineering, electronics, software, media, and DIY culture Deep Quality Move from surface quality to highly refined realizations of powerful ideas Focus on criticality, research, strategy, systems design, invention, risk taking, and strong conceptual development Graduate programs should influence undergrad
  5. 5. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: Integrated Work Powerful work integrates cultural, technological, theoretical and social contexts Integrate the Humanities and Sciences into studio culture Make Interdisciplinary and collaborative work a core competency Looking outward Embrace diversity in all its dimensions as a means towards excellence in art and design and a socially responsible mission Explore local and global communities Engage in lively discourse with art and design communities
  6. 6. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: Making for Emerging Mediums Technology and cultural changes catalyze new mediums that must be incorporated into curriculums Research and invention of new approaches should be integral to the academic life of ACCD Teach adaptability to new constraints, opportunities, skills and concepts Embrace risk taking Constant Innovation in Programs Culture must support constant change in curriculum Potential new degrees: Interactive Design, Design Research, Sustainable Design, Pro-Social Design, Theory & Criticism
  7. 7. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: Fluid Curriculum Increase opportunities for students and faculty to cross disciplines Open up interdisciplinary degree opportunities Decrease required credits, offer more electives Offer a range of curriculum models for students High School Grad - Additional terms for liberal arts, dorms, develop maturity & work habits, traditional academic calendar Professional - Faster track, good credit transfer policy Foreign - Full ESL support, dorms, intensive acclimation term Graduate - Early transfer from undergrad, low-residency option
  8. 8. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: Align admissions with curriculum & values Revise admissions criteria and methods Increase quality, preparedness, diversity, and fit to curriculum Increase dialog between admissions and programs Raise scholarship levels (duh!) Get branding, marketing, catalog and website right Life-Long Learning Educate our students to have life-long learning skills Integrate self-study “labs” into curriculum as requirement Create eLearning Center with physical and online presence
  9. 9. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 2) Values We advocate these new or renewed values: Outcomes Based Education Accreditation, field complexity, and educational excellence Clear, frequently updated, and published learning outcomes Curriculum and pedagogy must be aligned with outcomes Assessment must be formal and regular Teaching Excellence Improve faculty respect, security & community Establish faculty development initiatives - teaching & learning models, new pedagogical methods, collaborative teaching, advanced skills & technologies, etc. Formal faculty involvement with decision making - governance
  10. 10. © 2010 Art Center College of Design CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY 3) Conclusions Art Center Has a Tremendous Opportunity Be ambitious and establish a leadership position in advanced art/design education for the next 25 years An imperative to engage in R&D to create curriculums for the future May require rethinking entire curriculums Integrate faculty fully into curriculum development Will take time, experimentation, collaboration and perseverance Keep the dialog going
