After shifting to an online paradigm to deliver our fine arts curriculum last spring, we developed focused faculty forums to prepare for the new landscape of digital learning in the Fall 2020 semester.

Supporting the work done by the Center for Teaching & Learning, we met over six months and gathered critical feedback from faculty. The outcomes and on-going research highlighted that the crucial component to successfully moving online is building and sustaining a strong intersectional community, both in the classroom and among the faculty. Our research focuses on investigating ways we provide an inclusive and engaging learning environment through referencing non-hierarchical pedagogical models.
