This video was part of the July 2020 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit
The concept of teaching virtual dance courses may seem as counterintuitive as putting a square peg into a circle hole. Typically, essential means for delivering learning outcomes in the arts are in-person interaction and collaboration, hands-on experimentation, materials and equipment practices, specific space requirements, and live event components. Without these means, faculty are challenged not only with how to teach virtually but with how to redefine courses with very little of those tools that initially have defined the discipline.
In response, I created an online hub for my students in the spring with the intention to create a familiar sense of community where they could go, discover, and grow through dance in addition to communicate in forums and live chats, express themselves artistically, and be inspired by other students and artists.
This presentation will introduce this hub, systematically present curriculum practices, identify tools that proved to be useful, and consider some of the student feedback in response to the experience.
