Community of Learners
Cultivate a community of learners and possible group of peers that they can rely on for feedback, sharing knowledge, critiques and fruitful interactions. Assessments would need to be criterion-based (rubric) and product-oriented. Environment has to be adaptable and technology-driven.
Communication Very important, specially in fully online. You can create routines, correspondence time, and an open link for gathering around and meeting with the instructor.
Assignments and grading They are useful to check in on progress. There is a debate on fewer vs. many. Have an expectation set in advance, like the use of rubrics. Provide examples or not?
Reflection: For art classes a rubric would be good, but not examples. Examples can cause students to copy the example and you want to encourage them to do it well.
Plagiarism: Teach students about copyright and fair use. Teach students how to cite and provide reference. Provide an institutional policy. Tracing = bad.
Reflection: How big of a concern would plagiarism be in an art class?
Review Other Elements in the textbook.
reflection: Joshua might be fairly good with tech. We need to have some support for future instructors that might take over that class. Provide material for students and instructors on support.
