Visual Thinking: Art + Innovation

Michael Kieley is in his 18th year of teaching Visual Thinking at Loyola Marymount University. The course if focused on project-based, and experiential learning, inspired by the methods of Black Mountain College, The Bauhaus, and MK’s undergraduate work at the Southern California Institute of Architecture.

We make things in order to concretize the principles of innovative problem solving, brainstorming, and self-expression using techniques like photo-collage which give everyone the power to create resonate images.

To see and hear what a few of the 1000+ students of Visual Thinking felt about the experience, please listen to a few of the course reflections they recorded at the end of the semester. VoiceThread is a core cloud-based technology, employed to keep students engaged in between our face to face meetings.
