Words on the Wadsworth: Podcasting and the Teaching of Art History
Altvater, Fran
Journal of Effective Teaching, v9 n3 p77-88 2009
This course, "Words on the Wadsworth," was the Humanities Honors course for the spring of 2009 at Hillyer College, the two year Associates degree program at the University of Hartford. Combining the content of a chronological survey of modern art with the new technology of podcasting and the venue of the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford CT, the intent of the course was to create a challenging environment for the most successful students in our program. The practices of skill development, active learning, and connection with a community partner were integrated into the learning structure of the class. The case study addresses the ways in which the technology were integrated into the class, where students excelled and suggestions for other professors thinking of using similar technology. A sample podcast, made by student Larisa Woykovsky, has been included.
