adnan lotia te aching portfolio myteachingphilosophyconsistsoftwocoregoals: cultivatingcreativity+fosteringindependence Iachievethesegoalsusingacombinationofclassroom strategies,strengthenedbyscaffolding,VTStechniques andinnovativelessonplanning content>context>concept My teaching practice is based on providing relevant contexts for new concepts. While many artist-teachers introduce new materials and techniques in isolation, I contextualize the tools of contemporary art and design using narratives from history or examples from modern life. I relate material usage to concept development­—so that in addition to learning new skills, students understand how to apply them clearly and expressively. art+design=society I believe that education is synonymous with responsible citizenship. In my classroom, I model tolerance, multiculturalism, and social awareness in an attempt to promote strong ethical values. My lesson plans are designed to broaden student perspectives on the issues that confront the world today and the challenges that it will face in the future. visualculture>culturalvision An important part of my teaching approach is understanding the student population with whom I am working. I continue to expand on my own interests that overlap with student culture in areas such as film, technology, comics, and gaming. I strive to incorporate these resources into my lessons, both to engage students in the content, as well as to demonstrate its relevance to their lives. teaching philosophy
