COD Photography Professor Named Honored Educator


Byline: Submitted by COD News Bureau

College of DuPage Professor of Photography Jeff Curto of Batavia has been named Honored Educator for 2013 by the Midwest Society for Photographic Education.

This award recognizes society members who have made a significant contribution to the field of photographic education through classroom teaching, writing, publishing, museum education or other areas of professional practice in photography.

Curto will accept the award at the SPE's regional conference Oct. 24-27 in Lincoln, Neb.

Curto, who has served as a member of the National Society of Photography Educators board of directors for six years, was appointed vice chairman of the organization in 2012. He is exceptionally pleased with being recognized by the society as Honored Educator for 2013.

"My colleagues at the MWSPE are some of the best and brightest in this field," Curto said. "To be chosen by them is an honor that is both flattering and humbling."

His teaching efforts have also earned him an honorable mention in the Santa Fe Center for Photography's annual Teacher of the Year Patron Saint of Photography award for 2007.

Looking back over nearly 30 years as an educator, Curto said there is one thing that has been a motivating force throughout his teaching career.

"It's the students," he said. "They constantly present new challenges and opportunities to learn and grow. Seeing their enthusiasm and guiding them to face and overcome challenges is tremendously rewarding."

Another challenge that Curto has embraced is the dramatic changes in technology that have occurred since his start as a photographer.

"When I began in this industry, there was no digital photography, no interaction with computers," Curto said. "Now the vast majority of people carry digital cameras on their phones and it's incredibly important to keep up with emerging technologies.

"Though it has required a lot of work and research, we've been very successful at keeping the photography program at College of DuPage on the leading edge of the industry."

Curto has continued to teach by example in terms of emerging technologies. He was recently named an Apple Distinguished Educator, part of a global community of educators who are doing innovative work with Apple technology inside and outside of the classroom.

As a part of this prestigious group, Curto joins other members every year at ADE Institutes and education events around the world, as well as online in the ADE community, to collaborate on solutions to the global education challenges of today and tomorrow. …
