The College of Charleston will host a workshop on “Computing in the Arts: Music, Art, and Computation” commencing on Wednesday, May 13, 6pm, through Friday, May 15, 2015, 1pm, in Charleston, SC.
The workshop is funded by National Science Foundation grant DUE 1323605, Transforming Undergraduate Education Type 2 Project. Approximately 25 participants will be involved along with four facilitators. Multiple participants from one institution are permitted, especially if they form a multidisciplinary team spanning some aspect of Computing and the Arts. Travel expenses, lodging, and meals will be covered for participants who are accepted to the workshop.
The workshop focuses on building a community of educators, who are teaching students to synthesize the creativity and design of art with the mathematical rigor and formality of computer science, technology, and engineering. Workshop participants will explore various curricular approaches to integrating computing and arts disciplines. They will also investigate and be given resources for developing individual assignments, courses, and complete degree programs in Computing in the Arts. The workshop facilitators have all contributed to relevant curriculum development, have taught courses, and/or lead development of degree programs bridging computing and the arts. NSF is funding dissemination of this expertise to enhance the integration of computing and arts disciplines and strengthen STEAM (STEM + Art) education at the national level.
