Micro Maker Series: How to Teach in a Pandemic: A Case Study

Thursday, June 17 at 3:00pm to 4:15pm

Virtual Event

In this talk, Chris Collins will present a case-study on reworking his Spring 2021 New Media Art class at SAIC, which he unofficially retitled “How to Make Art in a Pandemic”. He’ll present his syllabus, assignment prompts, and student work. He’ll also share tips, strategies, and techniques that worked for him (and what didn’t) as we all attempted to navigate this exhausting, stressful, and awkward world of online learning– and what we can all take from this time into the future. Part of the Crafting Change Symposium hosted by the Center for Convergence at Oberlin College and Conservatory, the Micro Maker Series is a fully virtual lecture series featuring artists, designers, and educators from around the world. Presenters use traditional handicraft and contemporary technologies to create bespoke wearables and interfaces for performance, improvisation, installation, and education.
