Education Dialogue: Thursday, May 24, 2012 3:00-6:00 PM Grand Ballroom 1A&B Trailblazing: Making Career Moves Now in its tenth year, the three-hour Education Dialogue brings together educators and others in the field to address current issues they are facing. Everyone is encouraged to participate in this forum to talk openly about difficult questions: Are you a metals student that is approaching graduation? The heat is on to find your way in this world! The times have changed, and our economy is struggling. What is a recent graduate to do in a more limited job market? Are you an educator whose program is changing or may need to change because of these issues? With fewer teaching positions opening up, how does the job market impact your programs? How are these shifts changing your teaching? Listen, learn from, and talk with both recent graduates who have found success in a variety of areas within the realm of metalsmithing and the educators who are adapting to the changing market. Studio jewelers, instructors, professors, and resident artists will share a range of experiences and pathways. Leading the discussion are: Haley Bates, Associate Professor, Metalsmithing, Colorado State University Alicia Jane Boswell, Studio Artist and Educator Wing-Ki Chan, Program Coordinator, Jewellry Studies, George Brown College Susie Ganch, Assistant Professor/Head of Metal Program for Craft and Material Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University Jill Baker Gower, Assistant Professor of Art, Rowan University Johanna Ingram, Owner/Founder of Harold Studios Emily Johnson, Owner/Designer EC Design LLC Lisa Johnson, current Arrowmont Artist-in-Residence Lauren McAdams Selden, Assistant Professor of Art, Stephen F. Austin State University Callie Shevlin, Guillocheur at Breguet, Le Sentier, Switzerland John Tzlepis, Instructor, Phoenix College; Artist in Residence, Phoenix Center for the Arts ... and more! 38 The 2012 Education Dialogue is coordinated by Victoria Altepeter, Rebecca Scheer, and Wing-Ki Chan.
