ThinkTank 3 will be held June 6 to 11, 2008 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It will be facilitated by Mary Stewart, Foundations Program Director at Florida State University & Jim Elniski, Department of Art Education and Director, First Year Program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The event is by invitation only.
One session will focus on bringing together MFA Candidates, Recent MFA Graduates, Beginning Adjuct Professors, and Emerging Adminstrators. Another session will bring together experienced foundations faculty and administrators with some participants from session one to discuss trends in foundations. The two sessions are overlapped by a few days to encourage emerging and master teachers and administrators to interact.
ThinkTank is a facilitated forum of the Institute for Integrated Teaching which brings together art and design master teachers, administrators & emerging educators to address thematic issues of higher education. By linking educational theory to studio practice, we develop innovative new approaches to higher education. An emerging educator is a current MFA student or adjunct instructor who is entering the professoriate.
