A Mile in Her Shoes: Artifact-Based Learning at Philadelphia University
Marcella Milio Martin, curator of the Textile and Costume Collection and University lecturer in history of costume and textiles, will share her experience teaching with artifacts and invite attendees to be immersed in the types of engaged learning activities that Philadelphia University is known for.
Working in groups, participants will analyze a pair of shoes from our Collection and use them as inspiration to design a new product with unconventional materials. Faculty, students and members of the public are all welcome to attend. Join us after the event for discussion and refreshments.
Presented by The Design Center at Philadelphia University
