Studio and Performance Based Courses

Information for Spring 2020
Instructors are encouraged to be flexible and creative when determining how to deliver content and support learning outcomes. Instructors may need to develop alternative assessment tools for these courses or modify their syllabi to accommodate available modes of instruction. Departments and programs should provide guidance to their instructors about general approaches for alternative instruction and should encourage consistency and coordination wherever possible.

Remote Teaching Approaches

Instructors of performance based courses may consider deploying both synchronous (Zoom) and asynchronous (Canvas Studio, Zoom cloud recording) tools to enable students to record performances. While not ideal, these tools may allow classes to replicate some aspects of performances. VoiceThread may also be a useful tool for some visual arts classes.
