The Critical Response Process in Action

The Critical Response Process in Action: A Webinar in Celebration of the Release of Critique Is Creative

Friday, November 4, 2022 at 12:30pm

FREE! Eastern Daylight Time. Reservations required.

Over the course of 30 years, Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process (CRP) has transformed the practice of feedback in arts, education, and civic life. Both a structured method and a flexible set of principles, CRP is now the focus of its first in-depth study in book form. 

Celebrate the release of Critique Is Creative: The Critical Response Process in Theory and Action (2022) by Wesleyan University Press. Hear from co-authors Liz Lerman and John Borstel and some of the 21 contributors to the book’s exploration of CRP and its applications. With samples from the book and lively conversation, the session will touch on such topics as:

• What do we mean by “good feedback” and how can it enhance creative process?
• How do feedback principles like relationship-building, agency, and inquiry function in teaching and learning?
• How can changes in the ways we give and get feedback impact current-day reckonings of equity, justice, and consent?
