Human Tracks in the Urban Landscape

Institution: Brooklyn College

Instructor: Noel Hefele and Linda Louis

Description: This interdisciplinary course uses Brooklyn’s Prospect Park as a setting for place-based learning, integrating visual art, technology and environmental science while focusing on inquiry-based pedagogy that teachers can draw upon in their own classrooms. Participants will: examine the complementary nature of artistic and scientific inquiry, teaching, and learning; construct site-specific artistic installations that address environmental and resource sustainability; document and record insights through “actual” and “virtual” means (drawing, field notes, model making, photography, videography, mapping, etc); develop differentiated instructional materials that promote critical and creative “habits of mind.”

Level: Graduate

Timing: Two-week summer intensive.
