Building upon the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), the presenter discussed active learning and assessment strategies that utilize digital technology to facilitate multiple means of student engagement when studying East Asian Art. In particular, she demonstrated assignment and assessment models of active learning that foreground visual analysis by engaging with new technology platforms such as BaiBoard and VoiceThread.

Myron Gray, Visiting Assistant Professor of Music, “Teaching Opera with Camtasia”

Though a beloved part of the music history curriculum, opera can bedevil teachers. The very things that make it interesting make it an unwieldy topic for the undergraduate classroom. The presenter demonstrated how multimedia software can alleviate endemic problems in opera pedagogy. Camtasia is available in the Instructional Technology Center located in Stokes 205.
