CAPABLE: Creative Arts Performance and Application in a Blended Learning Environment

Session Description
In a world in which technology is increasingly ubiquitous, artists continue to struggle to find a sense of purpose, community, and humanistic value in digitally augmented spaces. We were placed in the rare position of having a choreographer and photographer seek our online learning team to translate their in-person workshops into blended learning environments. By utilizing best practices for online learning, we were able to leverage multimedia, virtual conferencing, and project based learning in an online environment to enhance face-to-face coursework. Students positively responded to the ability to press the limits of their creative mindsets in their individual safe havens and with their collective peer group. You will leave with strategies and evidence to support the collaboration of online and physical curriculums. This session is intended for audiences of all experience levels. While the focus of this experience is design and arts curriculum, this framework could be applied to any discipline.
