ABOUT THE EVENT
What does it mean to make things after the digital turn, and what are the pedagogical implications of art and design in the digital sphere for art and design education and practice? These are some of the major questions being asked by the Design Lab’s Visiting Fellow in her current work.
Interested in the philosophical, pedagogical, and educational aspects of the design of human-computer interaction, Dr. Saethre-McGuirk has looked at instructional design and practice in digital art and design education from the perspective of the pupil, the teacher, and the PhD candidate.
How do we make use of the digital in art and design education and what happens at the intersection of these things? Welcome to this Guest Seminar on Experience and Understanding through Digital Innovations.
