Hands on the Tech: Craft, Pedagogy and the Digital Challenge

Heller, L, and D. Millerson. Hands on the Tech: Craft, Pedagogy and the Digital Challenge. Making Education: The Changing Nature of Teaching Craft, Can Craft? Craft Can! Canadian Craft Biennial Symposium, Art Gallery of Burlington, Burlington and OCAD University, Toronto, 2017

Hands on the Tech: Craft Pedagogy and the Digital Challenge, was scheduled for the session, Making Education: The Changing Nature of Teaching Craft which included papers from across the world and was facilitated by team member Dorie Millerson. Lynne Heller and Millerson summarized their findings through a video, followed by a PowerPoint presentation. Afterwards, in a lively Q&A session, members of the audience asked questions about approaches to craft pedagogy and the position of women in a gendered practice, as well as the place of intersectional feminism within this context. The CPDC team described teaching practices that encourage students to investigate their own identities through their work and commented that there is an unequal gender representation in Material Art & Design that should be better understood and discussed.
