Following from last year’s interdisciplinary symposium (hosted by Teachers’ College, Columbia University, New York City) we are happy to announce Thinking through Drawing 2012. The event will bring together artists, educators, scientists, medical practitioners, philosophers, engineers, computer scientists, and more, to examine the uses of drawing across Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.
How is drawing used within and between these disciplines? What is the relationship between drawing in the Arts and STEM subjects? What is our current understanding of drawing, cognition and learning, and how is it contributing to curriculum development and instructional design in these areas?
Thinking through Drawing 2012 will address these issues, exploring learning and teaching practices and new research directions. The symposium will be an active discursive platform in which we consider the place of drawing across disciplines and professions.
We will be joined by colleagues from around the world in order to share practice and discussion across countries as well as disciplines.
The symposium begins on the evening of 12th September with ‘Drawing for Survival’, presenting three examples of how drawing has contributed to medical practice. The following 2 days will focus on group discussion and sharing of research findings and practices across disciplines.
