FATE: Foundations in Art Theory and Education: 17th Biannual Conference

As foundational learning continues to shift and grow, we educators find ourselves reinventing curricular structures to suit the needs of our first year students. We’re in a state of constant flux as we tackle new methods of technique and concept-based learning styles. But this challenging paradigm offers an opportunity: We can connect with our students on a human level as we navigate through issues in the educational, social, and political realm. At the upcoming FATE Conference Foundations in Flux, let’s dig into the ways we are engaging this new generation of global citizens -- and how we can do that better.
