Below is an annotated version of the slideshow for a session I presented on June 17th, 2009 at the Canadian e-Learning Conference.
Art educators are capable of seeing new pedagogical possibilities when working with digital technology in curriculum, which suggests that their work might benefit the future of networked learning. This session will demonstrate how online technologies are being used to foster meaningful discourse and original imagery within studio art courses at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. These particular courses offered online are not about using the computer to make art, but rather an understanding of visual principles and conceptual themes. In many cases students use traditional media and then document the work for online presentation. Although the lack of human contact adds challenges to the teaching and learning process, our experience has revealed success in quality of work, active participation, and critical thinking.
