Connect theory and learning to the lived experience with creative projects in the classroom. Participants will explore the use of artistic or creative projects that can connect course content and enhance the depth of learning for students. Using such projects enriches classroom diversity climate, fosters collaboration and provides opportunities for student engaged learning. Workshop members will have hands on experience and create a mask using paper, graphics and images that reflect the identities of self and one’s public and private face.
Professor Kottenstette teaches in the area of communication theory. He considers himself a mastery learning teacher, one who is willing to work with tenacious students to help them set learning goals using student center learning, creative and innovative projects that integrate theory and application. His research and professional development interests include, interpersonal conflict process, teaching practice, performance studies, auto-ethnography, death and the grief process. Those intellectual forays have lead to professional conferences, as a panelist, workshop presenter and scholarly writer. He is active in local, regional, national conferences, and international conferences in Denmark, Germany and England.
Before teaching in the department of Communication, David taught for 10 years in theatre, while Theatre was still part of CAS. He was the scenic designer and technical director during that time. He has also directed numerous theatrical productions on the Auraria Campus and in the community.
