Speaker Series Winter 2021

COVID-19 Pedagogies: Tools, Content and Strategies

On Teams – All are Welcome!

COVID-19 Anxiety: Location, Refuge and Loss is a 2020-2021 collaborative creation research project led by Dr. Pam Patterson, Assistant Professor, TIS, Faculty of Art, with Daniel Payne, OCAD U Library and Joanna Black, University of Manitoba. It is being funded by an OCAD U Seed Grant, a Canada Council Strategic Initiatives Digital Futures COVID-19 Grant, a University of Manitoba Creative Works Grant and a Manitoba Arts Council (MAC) grant. Researchers have been exploring the generative potential of working in joyful, vulnerable, and committed communities of practice. Accepting anxiety as a given, as inherent in creative making, and during this pandemic, they continue to explore mutually supportive pedagogies among themselves and, this term, with Gallery 1313 and Textile Museum of Canada, Toronto, and with OCADU Art & Design Education Lab and University of Manitoba students. Creating a resource rich environment for learning, they are developing curricular resources and teaching and learning models that are being articulated as research results. These will be shared, with the assistance of Marta Chudolinska (OCADU Learning Zone) and Angie Ma (Undergraduate Research Assistant), on a OCAD Library Libguide for public access.

Our speaker series for this Winter Term is one such resource. Enjoy and share!
