Herron Faculty Teaching Residency at the Faculty Crossing

Herron faculty and teaching staff of all rank and appointment are invited to share their work and teaching practices and philosophy at the Crossing during a semester-long residency. The resident’s work, or their students’ work, is displayed in the Crossing. In addition, the resident hosts two Teach Talks which describe their high impact teaching practices and philosophies. The Teach Talks are open to the entire campus. The resident is chosen by the Dean of Herron and supported by the Forum Fellows. 

Current Resident:
Sarah Jones, Spring 2023

The Faculty Crossing presents Teach Talks with Herron School of Art + Design associate instructor, Sarah Jones. Sarah is this semester’s Teaching Resident at The Faculty Crossing. Her Teach Talks will focus on the importance of fully engaging in each stage of the creative process, and embracing so-called “mistakes" as both a valuable visual element and as a way to expand hand-eye skills for faster artistic growth.
