Monday, July 20

10:00 - 10:30

Discussion on Our Experiences and Report on Student Assessment

Dr. Carissa Massey | Session

Provost Carissa Massey will lead a discussion about the abrupt move to online learning this Spring and what we can learn from student surveys about that experience.

11:00 - 12:00

Flipped Classroom Pedagogy

Garin Horner | Session

The flipped classroom is considered to be one of the most revolutionary, effective teaching and learning approaches to arise since our 19th century model of education. It focuses on a student-centered classroom where learners gain autonomy over their course content. The flipped classroom introduces methods of teaching that promote active learning principles that are based in brain science rather than intuition or tradition. If you are interested in finding out how you can flip your courses, then come join the conversation.

1:00 - 2:00

Flipped Classroom Pedagogy

Garin Horner | Workshop

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to walk through applying the skills and ideas covered in Session 2A.

2:30 - 3:30

Artmaking in a Virtual Environment

Natalie Lascek & Justin Phillips | Session

As we look back at art history and consider the future of art and art education we can ponder what magic Warhol would have conjured up in Photoshop or what three dimensional works Picasso would have created in MAYA and with 3D Printers. We are living in an incredibly inspiring time in the world of visual arts where the ideas of old and new cross pollinate and innovation occurs. During the current global pandemic artists are adapting and crafting new ways forward. Artists and Art Educators are on the cutting edge of this exploration as we seek new ways of teaching, collaborating, and making in a digital world. In this session we will discuss a variety of ways artists have embraced creating art in a virtual environment, new and exciting ways that artists have used the internet to host in real time collaborative and interactive art exhibitions and how the virtual world can expand artists vision and way of creating.

6:00 - 7:00

Lesson & Demo Video Production "Broadcast Model Teaching: Studio Recording Methods"

Rich Johnson | Session with Applied Learning

Open Broadcaster Software, or OBS for short, is a free and open-source program for streaming live content to web platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. It’s used by indie video game streamers and professional content production studios alike and can be impressively powerful when used creatively. This workshop will cover the use of OBS for live streaming video content, as well as tips and tricks for running a professional-quality stream.

10:00 - 7:30

Beginning with the End in Mind

Dr. Carissa Massey | Session

Backwards Design is a way of creating courses working in reverse from traditional modes of course design. By working backwards from desired outcomes to acceptable forms of evidence to finally structuring lessons and types of engagement course design becomes learning-centered rather than outcome-driven. Particularly in this moment when faculty may be feeling as though they need to reinvent the wheel to transition to online teaching, backwards design offers a way of restructuring existing courses without completely starting over.

11:30 - 12:30

Class Design & Workflow Triggers

Dr. Marti Morales-Ensign | Session

Is there a structure to layout courses? Can we set up our learning systems to maximize student engagement? Can one prepare an organized learning space to best suit the instructor and the needs of students? These are all questions that seem to be going through many instructor minds currently. Here, we will focus on lessons learned in setting up a remote course structure with the intention of maximizing student engagement while maintaining academic rigor, integrity, equity, and flexibility.

1:00 - 2:00

Class Design & Workflow Triggers

Dr. Marti Morales-Ensign | Workshop

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to walk through applying the skills and ideas covered in Session 6A.

2:30 - 3:30

Decolonizing Curriculum

Yixuan Pan, Justin Phillips, & Dr. Jessica Sponsler | Session

Creators of visual culture today need to understand our collective history in order to move into the future. In this session, the first of two, participants will gain an understanding of what “decolonizing the curriculum” means and how to easily apply those principles to their teaching practice. Topics include the differences between decolonize and diversify, how to understand the concept of colonizing, cultural appropriation, and why decolonization (not just inclusion) is important to any pedagogy. The second session offers a unique opportunity to workshop an assignment, syllabus, or other approach to our class this fall. At the end of both sessions, participants will have a basic toolkit of skills to take back to their classrooms. The new generations of artists and designers can access more creative freedom.

2:30 - 3:30

Lesson & Demo Video Production "Broadcast Model Teaching: Post Production with Adobe Premiere"

Rich Johnson | Session with Applied Learning

This session is geared towards the use of multiple cameras, lighting and audio to capture a polished performance for a recorded or live presentation and will have two lesson components. The first will be methods for pre-recorded content including planning, set up and recording. The second will be methods for live presentation using multiple cameras and input selectors in webinar software.

Wednesday, July 22

10:00 - 11:00

Decolonizing Curriculum

Yixuan Pan, Justin Phillips, & Dr. Jessica Sponsler | Workshop

In this session, the second of two, participants will apply the concepts and skills around decolonization, colonization, and appropriation that they learned in Session 7A. This session offers a unique opportunity to workshop an assignment, syllabus, or other approach to our classes this fall. At the end of both sessions, participants will have a basic toolkit of skills to take
back to their classrooms. The new generations of artists and designers can access more creative freedom.

11:30 - 12:30

Opportunities for Instructional Design

Justin Phillips & Mariah Postlewait | Session

The session will help participants think through opportunities made possible by online and hybrid courses. Without the limitations of rigid, in-person meetings, learning can be rethought to also occur in new ways outside the classroom–whether online or in the world. Justin Phillips will share his thoughts as he is currently reimagining a traditional studio course that will be offered through hybrid teaching this Fall. Phillips will offer his contemplations which are informed by his experiences in the physical classroom, online teaching, and the professional art world. Mariah Postlewait will speak about an online art history course and the ways she addressed: a feeling of community; being conscious, critical, and ethical internet participants; understanding photography as a(n) process, image, and object.

1:00 - 2:00

Get Students Engaged in Their Own Learning Experience

Garin Horner & Dr. Marti Morales-Ensign | Session

Learning can only happen when students are motivated enough to engage with the course content. They must be interested enough to complete the homework and participate in activities designed to help them learn. Only through their use of new information and experiential practices are they able to learn deeply. How can we get students to reach this level of learning, to be engaged enough to meet the learning objectives for the class?

2:30 - 3:30

Get Students Engaged in Their Own Learning Experience

Garin Horner & Dr. Marti Morales-Ensign | Workshop

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to walk through applying the skills and ideas covered in Session 9A.

6:00 - 7:00

Universal Design & Accessibility for Online Learning

William Illingworth | Session

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) suggests that our teaching and learning
practices can reach all students under all circumstances. This framework addresses many concerns in accessibility for students with disabilities, while also suggests that our course designs can be better through practices that account for the variety of learners in our classrooms.


Accessibility practices focus on the technology involved in delivering content to a student in a way that they can perceive it (audio, video, text, Braille, etc.). UDL drives the way we approach teaching and learning. This session will help you identify which elements of these two fields will help you and your curriculum to meet the needs of a Fall 2020 class impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thursday, July 23

10:00 - 11:00

Reources for Online Learning and Artmaking

Mariah Postlewait | Session

In order to mold the learning experience for students to be as effective and meaningful as possible, it is helpful to understand exactly what kinds of online tools and resources are at your disposal. Finding ways for students to engage visually, verbally, collaboratively, and metacognitively can grow from finding new platforms and employing new strategies. From Padlet to LinkedIn Learning to Omeka to ThingLink, this session will present you with a host of tools for cultivating hybrid/online courses.

11:30 - 12:30

Google Course Template & Best Practices for Fall

Dr. Carissa Massey, Justin Phillips, & Mariah Postlewait | Session

This session will overview the most important information for faculty looking ahead to Fall semester, covering expectations for hybrid & online courses, Google Classroom and blank course templates, and best practices for a new learning environment for all of us.

1:30 - 2:30

PCA&D Instructional Media & How-To

Alex Leonhart | Session

Reviewing new and existing instructional media available to PCA&D faculty, this session will provide the important information of what PCA&D has to offer and how to use it. In addition to troubleshooting technical concerns for the Fall Semester, a Q & A is reserved to resolve outlying issues.
