Re-imagining Higher Arts Education Online (Part Two)

Re-imagining Higher Arts Education Online (Part Two)

As the majority of universities and academies have closed, leaders and lecturers have found themselves having to convert their courses to digital formats as quickly as possible.
ELIA’s first virtual talk entitled Re-imagining Higher Arts Education Online (Part One) explored the various implications of a speedy transition to teaching and learning online. This session (Part Two) takes us a step further, looking at solutions on how to re-configure existing courses and establish new learning patterns.
Presentations focus specifically on Higher Arts Education case studies. Barbara Brownie from the University of Hertfordshire looks at how lockdown has challenged academics to reflect on the extent to which there is room for flexibility and creativity in assessment. Jan Eckert describes what it was like for educators and learners at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts to switch to asynchronous learning using new formats and platforms such as; screencasts, video lessons, audio tracks or even physical kits that have been shipped to the students. And finally, Michael Li from Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts talks about the responses and actions of instructors to the adoption of new pedagogies, tools and software in a virtual world.
