The NIU School of Art and Design presents “Learning in the Making” a visiting artist/scholar presentation by Dr. Kimberly Sheridan, co-director of the Mason Arts Research Center at George Mason University. The presentation will be held Monday, Oct. 18 in Room 110 of Jack Arends Hall at 5 p.m. You can also join via Zoom.

In the ARC, Sheridan studies how studio art classes support learners’ agency. She focuses on creative production with technology and how technology can create innovative contexts of possibility for youth from traditionally underserved groups. Her research takes a sociocultural perspective on learning, with a particular focus on how this learning is situated in diverse and changing contexts with the advent of new digital technologies.

The presentation is supported by the NIU Arts and Culture fee.
