"Photography 4.0: A Teaching Guide for the 21st Century"
Thursday, March 06 - 1:30PM to 2:45PM
As our students face unprecedented debt loads we need to look at the value of a photography degree in the 21st Century. We need to examine photography education, revamp our curricula and invigorate our syllabi. Based on interviews with 47 educators worldwide, from the book, Photography: A Teaching Guide for the 21st Century (to be published in June 2014 by Focal Press), this seminar will present best practices of successful photography programs, and ideas for invigorating syllabi with new assignments, new ways to create hybrid classes and take advantage of the web and social media, and new approaches to thinking about photography education. This is a working seminar, so come prepared with questions and your own best practices.
