Questing Curriculum at Quest University

Wed., Oct. 31, 2018 12:00 p.m. - Wed., Oct. 31, 2018 1:00 p.m.

Location: ED 341 (Education Building)

Presenter: Kathryn Ricketts

This talk will outline an artist residency at Quest University, an alternative model for post secondary education embedded in the mounts of Squamish, British Columbia.

Dr. Ricketts will report on curriculum explorations such as building curriculum within a unique and intense context which demands attention to the balance of distilling and combustive approaches to instruction, developing radical methods that compel even the most skeptical students towards arts-based methods, ensuring relevance and applicability of arts methods within a broad range of disciplines, and humanity driven delivery that abolishes traditional notions of accommodations towards differentiated learning.

Buckle up for a roller coaster ride in new approaches to curriculum design within an extreme context.

Faculty and students are encouraged to attend. Everyone is welcome. Coffee is provided. No registration is required.
