Creating Your Best AP® Art History Syllabus Ever
9:00-10:15 AM, Hilton room 415B
As we prepare our AP® Art History teaching practice to fit a new curriculum framework, designing a dynamic syllabus is the key to a great year. Using the syllabus guidelines established by the College Board, teachers can become chief curators in their classroom, creating a vibrant learning environment of inquiry and discovery. We will explore curating online content that links old favorites to new material in the curriculum. Teachers will draw connections that will enable them to make classroom preparation a creative experience. New pathways to understanding can be charted by drawing on thematic, cross-cultural, and formal relationships in your syllabus. Participants will emerge from this session with ways to create a syllabus to both meet the requirements of the new curriculum and guide students in an engaging learning environment.

Reading Visual Primary Sources in AP® European History (with Paul R. Deslandes, University of Vermont)
2:45-4:00 PM, Hilton room 404
Strong, historically contextualized visual literacy skills can be key to student success in AP® European History. In this session, participants will explore ways to meaningfully integrate the close reading of paintings, prints, cartoons, posters, and photographs into classroom activities. The activities will help prepare students to successfully address exam questions and craft essays from prompts that include visual documents.

ER&LJoin us at the Electronic Resources & Libraries conference this February 22-25, in Austin, Texas.

We’re taking part in two panels—conference attendees can sign up below.

 

The Care and Keeping of Digital Humanities Projects: Tools and Best Practices for Content Management and Delivery in the Digital Humanities

Moderated by Artstor’s Jennifer Hoyer, featuring presentations by Chelcie Rowell of Wake Forest University and Stephanie Bernhardt of Ohio State University.

Monday, February 23, 10:00-10:45 AM in room 103. Sign up here.

As the digital humanities explore new frontiers for thinking about scholarship, new solutions for managing this content in flexible environments are a key part of ensuring the longevity of this research. This session will present methods and tools used for managing and delivering the content of digital humanities projects.

Collaborative Collection Development: Engaging Users in Acquiring and Describing Collections using Artstor’s Shared Shelf

Moderated by Artstor’s Caroline Caviness and featuring Xiaoli Ma of Purchase College and Brooke Cox of DePauw University.

Tuesday, February 24, 10:45-11:30 AM in room 104. Sign up here.

This session will introduce Shared Shelf, Artstor’s web-based digital media management system, and highlight the work of librarians who use the platform to engage users in hands-on collection building and collaborative cataloging to help support faculty projects and free up library time. Speakers will describe specific projects – such as one on creating supporting materials for a course in Slavic folklore – and discuss how they facilitate collaboration, ways to build partnerships with their users, as well as the tools that can be harnessed to support these processes.

“I didn’t know how to look at art,” Phil Terry, founder and CEO of Collaborative Gain, confessed to ARTnews a few years ago. “Like most people, I would walk by quickly.” As the article points out, a study in Empirical Studies of the Arts estimates that museumgoers spend an average of just 17 seconds looking at an individual painting. But with Slow Art Day, Terry might just be changing those statistics.

It all started in 2008, when Terry decided to try an experiment at an exhibit at the Jewish Museum. Instead of rushing through the show glancing at everything, he looked at just a few works, slowly. He found that he loved it.
