Empowering Learning: Using Student Exemplars in Teaching
Ho, Kong
Teaching Artist Journal, v13 n4 p193-203 2015
Using student work as exemplars is a powerful component of a balanced pedagogy. Not only does it help students design reachable learning goals, but it also stimulates students in their studies through collaborative teaching and learning. No matter how good an individual teaching artist is in his or her own art, it does not mean that he or she is an effective teacher. Teaching and practicing are two very different profession, therefore the ideas and technical achievement of student artworks has the ability to show the quality of art education that students have received. Here, King Ho, Associate Professor of Art Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences University of Brunei, looks back on the last two decades of his life as a teaching artist. He believes that he can identify three major methodologies for learning art that shaped his teaching. First one learns from other artists and their work. Second, One learns from one's teachers, and Third, one learns from one's peers. Ho argues that engaging students in learning by using student examples is a scaffold type learning technique that can be seen as an innovative pedagogy when the teaching artists are aware of it's true usefulness and effectiveness.
