Using the Web to Enhance Teaching in the Arts

Using the Web to Enhance Teaching in the Arts
Except in those cases where the web is the focus of their art, most artists are notoriously reticent in seeing any relevance of web capabilities, especially for their pedagogical needs. But with the growing popularity of distance learning, teachers in the various arts disciplines are not only finding many of these web capabilities useful tools for their course needs, but are designing courses that are being delivered entirely online. This session will explore uses of the technology, available websites and products. Examples of teaching strategies for the various arts disciplines will also be examined for their strengths and difficulties, and session attendees will be encouraged to share their own experiences.


  1. I am interested in attending the conference on June 3rd. Let me know if I need to do anything ahead of time. I am very interested in discussing how industrial design or other art/design classes may be taught on-line or as a hybrid.

      Thanks for your interest in getting courses in industrial/art design online or hybrid. At the session, I’ll be giving a basic description on getting a course into online or hybrid format, focusing on some special needs of arts disciplines. But I’ll allow time to discuss needs of particular disciplines with, I hope, much participation from our session attendees (my specialization is music, but I know there will be folks from other disciplines with online/hybrid experience attending).

      Looking forward to meeting you at the conference!
