I recently got a job teaching at an Art and Design College and as part of the job I am required to create a class outline. I was given the job because of my skills as an artist, not as a teacher, and now I'm starting to realize that there is another artform to creating and managing a class. So I'd love to hear from anyone who studied at a similar school what their favorite assignments were at the foundation level (1st year).
I'd love to hear about lessons and assignments which pertain to the following.
and anything else you think should be covered during the first year.
Please feel free to share your experiences of your first year program you attended and what worked and what didn't.
