Arts in Higher Education Conference

Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project Conference
April 24-25, 2013

Free and open to the public

Museums and Higher Education in the 21st Century: Collaborative Methods and
Models for Innovation

The conference explores the hypothesis that exposure to and participation
with the arts provide enriched and innovative learning experiences for
college students inside and outside the classroom. These experiences also
enhance students¹ ability to learn, question, and explore. The conference is
interested in learning about collaborative models between arts institutions,
particularly museums, and colleges and universities, and how educators are
integrating the arts across the curriculum.

We are accepting submissions for conference presentations and research
papers for publication that address the conference theme. Proposals for
special topics to be discussed in a panel format will be considered. In
particular, the conference organizers are interested in presentations that
explore, explain, and clarify innovative higher education teaching methods
employed to increase student exposure to the arts. New pedagogy, as well as
approaches to assessing the impact of the arts on students¹ critical
thinking skills, multi-modal learning, and sense of self, will be given
special consideration.

Participants will prepare a 15-minute presentation of their topic, and
provide a written document in the form of a research paper for possible
inclusion in the publication of the conference proceedings.

timely fashion.

The presentation should be lively and engaging (think TED talk), crafted
