Noyce Conference Room
Elizabeth Ellsworth (Associate Provost for Curriculum and Learning and Professor of Media Studies, The New School, New York)
There is a growing interest in pedagogy as an expanded cultural practice capable of fostering new ways of thinking and knowing. In this talk, Elllsworth reframes pedagogy as a question of design. She considers what we might make of pedagogy (and what it might make of us) were it approached through concepts such as complexity, vital materialism, nonhuman actants, assemblage, and emergent causality.
Ellsworth’s research focuses on the design of mediated learning environments, and the relation between aesthetic experience and inventivist thinking. Her scholarship addresses how media design creates possibilities for people to invent, share, and navigate diverse ways of knowing. She is author of Places of Learning: Media, Architecture, and Pedagogy.
