Please join us on Friday, December 9th from 11am-12:30pm EST for a conversation about innovative teaching methods for history/theory and studio courses. The goal of this workshop is to present pedagogical methods that have been used to address student learning needs as we return to the classroom and move away from a fully digital experience. How are students learning today? What is the most effective way of conveying content in the most accessible way? How do we incorporate multimedia in the classroom? Professors Kelema Lee Moses (UC San Diego) and Joseph Godlewski (Syracuse University) will offer presentations sharing various course assignments and outcomes for introductory level courses. Their comments will be followed by a Q&A period and open discussion.

Joseph Godlewski is an Associate Professor at the Syracuse University School of Architecture. He holds a Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley. Examining the architecture and urbanism of Nigeria, his research focuses on the history of the built environment in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His writing has been featured in various forums including The Plan JournalArchitecture Research Quarterlye-fluxCLOGMONU, Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review, and the book The Dissertation: An Architecture Student’s Handbook (Routledge, 2014). His recent textbook, Introduction to Architecture: Global Disciplinary Knowledge (Cognella, 2019) seeks to expand the repertoire of conventional architectural theory anthologies by including texts written by a range of authors globally emphasizing the process of co-creation and circulation of ideas across cultures. While at Syracuse, he has been the recipient of both the university’s Meredith Teaching Recognition Award and the ACSA/AIAS New Faculty Teaching Award. Joseph is a contributing member of the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC). 

Kelema Lee Moses is an Assistant Professor of urban studies and planning at the University of California, San Diego. She holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the Pennsylvania State University. Her teaching and research engage the intersections of race, indigeneity, and politics within built environments of the United States and Oceania. Her work has appeared in Ardeth, The Avery ReviewThe Contemporary Pacific, Pacific Arts, and Platform. Her research has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Black Studies Project at UCSD, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Getty Foundation, ACLS, NEH, and the East-West Center at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Moses is co-chair of the SAH Globalizing Architectural History Education affiliate group and a three time nominee for the Loftsgordon Memorial Award for outstanding teaching at Occidental College.
