Redesigning Online Presentation Spaces: An Example of Pedagogy Driving Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Reproducing the art studio experience online was said to be impossible. A few years later, the precursor to ELMS LN Studio was created to meet this inherent need for critique and feedback in online arts courses, and has since proven relevant to meeting pedagogical needs in the context of other disciplines, including business and the sciences.

This panel session will briefly describe the background of the impetus for the ELMS Learning Network Studio. The panelists will then discuss how two other colleges, the Eberly College of Science and Smeal College of Business, were able to repurpose the existing features of the Studio to extend the critique experience into other disciplines. Panelists will also discuss how the expansion to science and business has influenced the experience for arts.

This session is for anyone interested in learning more about critique as a cross-disciplinary assessment strategy, and how to use online spaces to encourage effective critique among students. Additionally, the panelists will identify the key features that allow for more useful critique online.

The first part of the session will be a short presentation, followed by a Q&A revolving around how critique can be applied in other disciplines, features of the tool that would work for specific use cases, and other teaching and learning strategies outside of critique that could benefit from the "pedagogy-first" approach of designing a technology tool that really fits the instructional need rather than adjusting an activity to make it fit what the available technology allows.

I love talking about Philosophy and its influence on technology and how we can shape society through proper alignment of all three. Educational technology design is the thing I do, my passion is building a better, more open, more transparent, cheaper, faster, better planet through elimination of waste. Information Altruism, the giving away of ideas and information is what changes the world.
