A Tale of Two Courses: Challenging Millennials to Experience Culture through Film
Kirakosian, Katie; McLaurin, Virginia; Speck, Cary
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v10 n2 p41-57 Jun 2017
In this article, we discuss how adding a final film project to a revised "Culture through Film" course led to deeper student learning and higher rates of student success, as well as increased student satisfaction. Ultimately, we urge social science educators to include experiential projects in their courses that connect to all learning styles. Such projects should also challenge students to "create", a task that requires generating ideas, planning and ultimately producing something, which, according to Bloom's revised taxonomy, engages students in the highest cognitive process (Anderson and Krathwohl 2000). Although this class focused on the intersections of culture and film and was taught at an American university, we believe these lessons apply more broadly.
