Tinkler and Ruth Have Proposal Accepted

Michael Tinkler, assistant professor of art, and Nick Ruth, assistant professor of art, had their proposal accepted at a New York State Technology Enhanced Learning Conference. Their presentation will talk about a number of pedagogical issues and then a few specifics of Blackboard experiences from the point of view of people who teach the making of art and the study of visual materials.

They are particularly interested in the perceived tension between technology's pervasive use as a modeling technique for all of reality and art's limited role as a vehicle for self-expression. Their goal is to engage this cultural perception critically and challenge its usefulness ­both among colleagues and students.
