RISD Teaching and Learning in Art and Design Certificate

I just came from a lovely lunch with Paul Sproll, Nancy Friese, and John Chamberlin where this year’s faculty RISD Teaching Advancement Program participants were feted and given certificates.

RISD Teaching Advancement Program: An intensive yearlong program in reflective collegiate teaching methods. The program integrated five Brown University Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning lectures, five RISD workshops customized to art and design, and an individualized teaching practice observation. Content areas included teaching philosophies; backward design for objectives in a syllabus; learning centered teaching for reaching a variety of learners; criteria for assessment and competencies; and effective communication skills.

About Lisa Young

My hybrid studio practice includes installation, book, video, web, and photography. My projects examine the intersection of the pedestrian, the repetitive, and the imperfect with the transcendent, the beautiful, and the perfect. I am interested in the way that the repetitive action of accumulating and organizing can create its own poetics. I grew up in Illinois, completed the Whitney ISP program in 1996, and teach Interdisciplinary Synthesis at the Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA.
