Keynote: The Journal Fodder Junkies
"Paradigm Shift in the Arts: Pulling together
traditional and contemporary pedagogical practices"
Are you simply teaching students to follow
directions in order to have a successful PRODUCT? Or are you teaching them to find their own
direction through a creative PROCESS? The Journal Fodder Junkies explore the idea of the student as
creator and how teachers play a pivotal role in developing the conceptual, stylistic, and
contextual concerns of young artists, musicians, actors, and dancers. By eschewing cookie-cutter,
recipe-like approaches, this shift in pedagogy encourages students to develop authentic modes of
expression through their engagement and individual pursuit of the creative process. Discussions
will center on how to treat students as creative collaborators and artists in their own right as a
way of enhancing student learning, promoting higher levels of thinking and innovation, and
integrating the skills that will allow students to compete in an ever-changing future.
Your students can benefit too!
