During COVID, art & design institutions need to transition their faculty to a fully remote curriculum, but are faced with limitations when trying to maintain an engaging learning experience.
Insights from Faculty
Currently faculty are spending too much preparation time for class and there is a lack of participation (One on One interaction between both faculty and student and student on student interaction).
Faculty also want to bring back the idea of a dynamic hands on experience for students remotely that could include the exploration of cutting edge technology like VR/AR.
It's become extremely hard for faculty to put names to faces in large classes, especially in a remote setting the collaboration between student and faculty decreases tremendously.
