Clemson Curates: Promoting Public Awareness of the Arts through Interdisciplinary Collaborations

Archived Webcast, April 21, 2015

Clemson Curates is the product of an interdisciplinary collaboration across the University to promote the arts. Faculty teach experiential-learning courses through a partnership with the Center for the Visual Arts, allowing students to gain practical knowledge and skill sets applicable both in the classroom and in the workforce. In this project, an undergraduate Honors English Accelerated Composition course collaborated with the Lee Gallery to conceive, curate, and promote an exhibit, Corporeal Complexities: Bodies in Progress. Dr. Morgenstern will be discussing the impact of the collaborative project on student learning objectives.

Clemson Collaborations in Service-Learning Webcast

Clemson University Collaborations in Service-Learning is sponsored by the Clemson Service Alliance. The Service Alliance promotes the use of community service and service-learning by Clemson faculty in classes with both undergraduate and graduate students in all major disciplinary areas. The Collaborations radio webcasts are an opportunity to hear from some of our Clemson Service Alliance Faculty Fellows, their students, and their community partners about  service-learning projects around the state of S.C., and to learn about the impact of these service-learning projects on the community and on student learning outcomes.  In 2014-2015, we will be focusing on service –learning classes in five different disciplinary areas:  Planning and Landscape Architecture, English, Languages, Teacher Education, and Nursing. Thank you for participating, and we hope that service-learning practitioners in both K-12 and higher education will find these workshops very helpful in the course development, implementation, and evaluation process.
