Over the course of the 2021-22 academic year, the FIC will host two book clubs that explore the topic of creativity in teaching and learning contexts from the perspective of theory and praxis. In the fall semester, we will read "The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery" (Sarah Lewis). In the spring semester, we will read "Assessment in Creative Disciplines: Quantifying and Qualifying the Aesthetic" (David Chase, J. Joseph Hoey IV and Jill L. Ferguson).

We can reasonably accommodate up to 10 attendees this fall and purchase books and/or ebooks. We will meet four times this spring semester to discuss the book: February 16, March 2, March 7 and March 30 (all meetings will take place in Zoom, 11:00am-12:30pm).

Please RSVP by January 17 to be included in the Spring 2022 book club.

Theory+Practice Book Selection: Assessment in Creative Disciplines: Quantifying and Qualifying the Aesthetic (David Chase, J. Joseph Hoey IV and Jill L. Ferguson)

Assessment in Creative Disciplines: Quantifying and Qualifying the Aesthetic takes on the most challenging and controversial aspect of art education - defining standards for assessment.
The authors, David Mills Chase and Jill Ferguson, set the stage by defining the context of assessing creativity and exploring the literature in the field; then they examine learning and assessment models and frameworks and explore the challenges that these structures present; after that, they offer a practical hands-on approach giving salient advice on how to establish creative assessment structures in your institution whether onsite or online; and they conclude with a roadmap to success, qualifications for the valuation of art, and real-world case studies.
