Teachers on Teaching: Joshua Thorson on the Co-Occurrence of Teaching and Learning

Teaching and learning can be understood as a co-occurring phenomenon (as opposed to a transactional one) that materializes in the classroom through meaningful connections and active engagement with the subject matter, both individually and communally. Offering students freedom to discover subject matter through their own particular interests and goals presents an opportunity for individual learning, but the particular also offers opportunities for discovery within the community of the classroom; individual student learning exposes their peers, as well as the faculty teaching, to more skills or ideas than in a fixed demonstration or lesson.

Joshua Thorson is an Associate Professor in the School of Photographic Arts & Sciences, College of Art and Design; Program Director, MFA in Photography & Related Media; and Acting Program Director, BFA Fine Art Photography. Joshua is the 2019-2020 recipient of the Richard and Virginia Eisenhart Provost's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He created the live video projections for the Broadway production of Rogers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, which won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival. To learn more about Joshua's work in teaching and photography, see this RIT News article.

This talk is sponsored by the Innovative Learning Institute (ILI).
