Faculty Profile

Laetitia La Follette Publishes on Art History Teaching
Associate Professor | History of Art & Architecture

"For students to understand the power of art, they have to learn what it is to become art historians and then do it themselves. That means working to find their own meanings and interpretations, which requires synthesis and creativity."

In a new article on art history pedagogy, Laetitia La Follette (History of Art & Architecture) explains how Bloom's Taxonomy can be adapted to support deeper, more student-centered learning activities in a large art history survey course.
