Starting the Conversation: Engaging Students in the Studio and Art History (CAA annual meeting, Chicago, February 12-15, 2014)

How do we help students to get involved as active learners and participants in our studio and art history classes? How do we get students to be critical thinkers and share their ideas with their peers? What new and innovative ways can we use to engage and challenge our students? This session is intended to explore and share best practices in both studio courses and art history classes. We are looking for innovative proposals from many different directions in the discipline: studio, art history, art appreciation, digital approaches, and online courses. What new ways can we engage students in the 21st century?

Proposals that are appropriate for this session present new and proven ideas for engaging students to be more involved in their coursework, share ideas, think creatively, and work collaboratively. The session is 1.5 hours and is sponsored by the Community College Professors of Art and Art History. Proposals from 2 and 4-year institutions are welcome. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words.

The deadline for proposals is July 20, 2013. Please send any inquiries and proposals to:
