Share Showcase: Teaching Art Online
July 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Art and other visually-oriented disciplines have unique needs when teaching and learning occur online. In this share showcase session, Hilary and Michelle will describe strategies for facilitating group critiques and image curation assignments with VoiceThread*, an asynchronous voice or video discussion tool with a free mobile app to support students that rely on a phone for connectivity.
*VoiceThread is not a native tool provided in Canvas, nor is it provided or support by CVC-OEI. It is an external tool that can be integrated into Canvas if an institution has a site license. With a site license, VoiceThread integrates into the Canvas gradebook, auto-generates student accounts, and (if purchased with the license) includes auto-captions. Sixteen California Community Colleges and two districts have independently purchase a site license for VoiceThread. This session is of particular interest to faculty who teach at the following institutions: Chabot College, Citrus College, City College of San Francisco, College of the Desert, College of Marin, Cuesta College, Foothill College, Laney College, Lake Tahoe Community College, Merced Community College District, Modesto Junior College, Ohlone College, Saddleback Community College, Santa Monica College, Santa Rosa Junior College, Sierra College, Southwestern Community College, West Valley-Mission Community College District
Speakers: Hilary Gomes, Foothill College and Michelle Pacansky-Brock, CVC-OEI
