Rationale: Art and science are chronically misunderstood. People distrust science, and mystify artists. The Skilled Observer in Art and Science course is designed to enable students to see that artists and scientists are natural allies; and how fluency in the languages of art and science will empower them.
Description: The Skilled Observer in Art and Science bridges the gap between the sciences and the arts. The course connects research practice and education in a wide spectrum of the sciences, with the methodologies and engagement found in arts learning. The course enables students to understand the interdisciplinary worlds transforming their chosen fields of study, and to successfully pursue their subsequent academic work using tools they will find essential in their professions.More about my teaching, and in particular about the Direct Encounter with the Arts program, can be seen HERE.
