Critical Making and Collaborative Learning

Project based collaboration and critical making fosters the development of important 21st century skills. In my Eco Art course, students work as teams for seven weeks to design, develop, and install a range of creative campus interventions around an environmental issue. Students discover how art and creativity can be civically engaged, a kind of DIY citizenship, while developing their ability to brainstorm, use visualization techniques, prototype, collaborate, communicate and self-reflect.
