For Immediate Release | April 1, 2015
Arts Future Projects launches their website (http://artsfuture.org) today with the announcement of a competition of arts education class toolkits, now accepting submissions to crowdsource new approaches in teaching art history, through Sunday, 31 May, 2015. This is a major milestone in the open project of experimental course materials as contributors and visitors alike can share materials, and build upon each other’s work in the online community.
Educators and scholars are invited to submit experimental lesson plans for creative ‘flipped’ and ‘hybrid’ classes (task-centred and technology-rich), targeted for university-level students, in teaching art history and arts-related subjects. A judging panel of experts in art history, education, new media and digital art, and experimental publishing will choose three award winners to receive USD 100 Amazon gift cards.
“Arts Future Classroom aims to build on the success of our experimental book series to innovate in the realm of flipped, hybrid and, most importantly, creative ways of teaching,” said Dr Charlotte Frost, founder and director of Arts Future Projects, assistant professor at the School of Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong, “We want to develop an open archive of class-kits so we can review and remix each others methods and change the educational landscape of art history and beyond.”
A subsidiary of Arts Future Project, Arts Future Classroom is an open project in crowdsourcing ‘un-lectures’ for the arts. The project aims to investigate innovative approaches in teaching art history beyond the traditional methods, with a focus on interactive and engaging education. This competition is the first of many open source projects planned under the Arts Future umbrella, alongside Arts Future Book and Arts Future Exhibition.
This competition is funded by the Association of Art Historians in the United Kingdom, with additional support from the City University of Hong Kong.READ MORE
