Event description
In this webinar we’ll update new developments in virtual education, explore interaction and presentation strategies, & share best practices.

About this Event

As teaching artists come to grips with the effects of the pandemic and plan for the 2020-2021 school year, it is clear that virtual learning must now be part of their skill set. The field, however, is changing as rapidly as it is growing. In this webinar, we’ll update new developments in virtual education, explore interaction and presentation strategies, and share best practices for using technology to increase creativity.

Our goal is to turn the focus of this workshop around, so that is not centered on “virtual teaching” but rather on “virtual learning” so we’ll strive to see everything through the lens of that student sitting on the other side of the screen. What is their experience? How can we engage them on all kinds of levels to heighten their engagement and experience in the arts?

Each participant of this webinar will be invited to join a Coffee Talk debrief on Monday, July 20 from 3:00 - 4:00 PM. This informal discussion will be lightly moderated and will be an opportunity for participants to discuss the information of the webinar and the processes for application, as well as share successes/opportunities for growth.
