First Year Insight: Disrupting Assumptions about Research in Art & Design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

First year art and design students can become overwhelmed at the thought of academic research. Librarians must look for ways to disrupt assumptions about the library and the research process so that students can more easily engage with critical concepts within information literacy. This interactive panel will showcase instructional design plans and reflection activities for first year programs that employ student creativity and collaboration as avenues of understanding research in art and design.

Linden How facilitates the creation of a giant mind map, in which students describe the ways they are already employing creative research methodologies in their practices and draw connections to those of others. Mackenzie Salisbury creates mind maps by crowd sourcing ideas in the same vein as exquisite corpse drawings. Siân Evans will lead a reflective mind mapping activity that will encourage librarians to consider scalability in lesson planning. The work will be aimed at creative practices in collaborative instructional design for First Year courses. Shannon Robinson uses design thinking techniques to emphasize individual student contributions to collaborative work while visualizing research and information use.

Learning Objective
  • Participants will learn alternative approaches to traditional instruction
