Call for applications and open house: Advanced Certificate in Creative Technologies (CTC)

Teachers College, Columbia University
Purring Tiger, MIZARU, 2015. Part of New Gifts, The Creative Technologies Exhibition, Macy Gallery.

The Art and Art Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University, invites artists, designers, educators and technologists to an open house on Friday, July 22 from 10am to 1pm to learn more about our newly launched Certificate program in Creative Technologies.

Join us in our Makerspace for a morning of demonstration and dialogue with other creative technology professionals. Our Open House will give visitors a chance to tour our newly renovated studios, speak with students and faculty, participate in a hands-on making activity and witness our creative technologies in action. Please RSVP here.

The mission of the Creative Technologies Certificate (CTC) is to poise students to lead the integration of creative and emerging technologies in art, technology, and education. CTC engages students in reflective learning and integrated studio practice, while participating in national and international communities to advance interdisciplinary, technology-infused approaches to art and art education.

CTC is designed for individuals with work experience and/or undergraduate or graduate degrees in studio art, art education, art history, media design, or instructional technology, among others. Candidates for CTC would ideally be art educators, artists, designers, technologists, and others who wish to incorporate creative technologies in various educational settings. The state-approved advanced certificate is a 15-credit point offering within the Art and Art Education program.

New media and digital technologies have changed the making, teaching, learning, and accessibility of art. These changes have influenced formal and informal learning environments such as universities, schools, libraries, community centers, after school programs, and art studios. Consequently, the landscape of traditional art itself is changing as a new creative reality steeped in media, technology, and social experience emerges.

CTC strengthens and explores the relationship between Art, Technology, and Education. In a world of increasing digital fabrication and social practice, it is more essential than ever to demonstrate proficiency beyond any one skill set. CTC provides this diverse training to participants so that they may become leaders in this interdisciplinary movement.

Teachers College, Columbia University, is the oldest and largest graduate school of education in the United States, and also perennially ranked among the nation’s best. Its name notwithstanding, the College is committed to a vision of education writ large, encompassing our four core areas of expertise: health, education, leadership and psychology.
