Art History Teaching Discussion Group

When and Where

Friday, November 06, 2020 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Online via Zoom


Devon Smither, University of Lethbridge
Alena Buis, Langara College


The "Art History Teaching Discussion Group" provides an opportunity for PhD candidates and postgraduates teaching courses to discuss and examine issues in art history teaching. Participants will share discipline-specific resources and strategies, at the same time, develop a support system for course instructors within the Department. The teaching discussion group will help participants harness and refine their art history teaching personas. The first hour of the discussion group is dedicated to discussions, sometimes with guest speakers, and the last half hour is an optional Q&A.

This session will focus on Open Educational Resources (OER) with Dr. Devon Smither and Dr. Alena Buis. Both Devon and Alena are part of Open Art Histories (OAH), a platform for art, art history, visual art, communication, and museum studies teachers and instructors in Canada.
