Noni Brynjolson

Graduate Instructional Designer

Noni Brynjolson’s goal in the CET is to help graduate students strengthen their skills as instructors and promote student-centered learning. Having worked as a Teaching Assistant and an Instructor at UCSD, she seeks to share her experiences facilitating classroom discussion, encouraging critical thinking and debate, and helping students to improve their research and writing abilities. As an art historian, Noni believes that visual literacy is an important tool for students to develop in order to negotiate the contemporary mediated world. Originally from Winnipeg, Canada, she received a Master’s degree in Art History from Concordia University in Montreal before moving to San Diego, where she is a PhD Candidate in Art History, Theory and Criticism at UCSD. Her research examines social justice and community activism in contemporary art and focuses on long-term, neighborhood-based projects that claim to encourage civic participation. She is a member of the editorial collective of FIELD: A Journal of Socially Engaged Art Criticism.
