Making Sense: Creative Pedagogies in the FYS Program

Reception: Tuesday, January 22, 5-7PM

Making Sense: Creative Pedagogies in the FYS Program is a departure from START’s traditional exhibition approach. Drawing together visual, material, and digital projects from first-year seminar courses taught in 4 departments, this exhibition celebrates curricular innovations in image- and object-based learning. Diverse collage works from Lynn Book’s Border Crossings: Creativity in the Mix and the Margins and Leigh Ann Hallberg’s Discovering the Avant-Garde  empowered students to create communicative images by combining extant ones. In a partnership with the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, students in Pat Lord’s Outbreak: Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You considered patterns in viral infectivity and social awareness of it through generative and curatorial engagement with infographic panels. In Ulrike Wiethaus’s Vocation of a Healer, students worked with Academic Technologist Brianna Derr to develop digital story-maps addressing questions of campus sustainability. Together these undertakings reflect the potency of creative scholarship available to students at Wake Forest and emblematize the unique possibilities for learning outcomes in the first-year seminar program.
