Patchwork Pedagogy Using Collage and Assemblage to Reinforce Memory, Create Connection, and Foster Belonging

PATCHWORK PEDAGOGY: Using Collage and Assemblage to Reinforce Memory, Create Connection, and Foster Belonging

Dr. Julia L. Hovanec

July 15th – 18th Onsite

July 19th - August 8th Online

8:30am – 4:00pm

In this institute, learners will use collage and assemblage to reinforce memory, create connection, and foster belonging. Participants will piece together various engaging and artistic encounters and strategies as their colleagues and students create collages and assemblages. The work will be layered with meaning and filled with purpose. Learners will recollect, affix, link, fasten, bridge, and secure while considering inclusivity and memory-making. Through art encounters and other unique experiences, educators gain the concrete skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary to help them construct, co-construct, and transform curricula, teaching, and learning. The shared content and strategies are appropriate for and adaptable to all ages, Pre-K through adult learners. The institute features workshops, projects, presenters, and a field trip to bolster pedagogy. The onsite workshop/institute will take place July 15th through July 18th and offers Act 48 credits for completion. The 3-credit asynchronous online course, which runs from July 19th through August 8th, builds on the patchwork pedagogy presented in the institute.
