SPE is Resurrecting the Blog

Posted on 08/11/20 by SPE Board of Director in Board Member Posts

In time for the return to school, and under COVID-19 conditions, SPE is resurrecting this blog. Each of us has unique teaching conditions and challenges that we face. We want to reactivate this blog as a way to share advice about teaching and learning in this unprecedented environment. For example, one of my digital humanist research partners, Kate Ozment created an online primer for her students that is freely available with attribution. Rebekah Modrak's Reframing Photography is a resource to check out as we select sites for course work. Consider contacting the art librarian in your area for lesson planning ideas in a hybrid or online classroom. SPE's blog aims to support the conversations about online teaching in the visual arts. What observations do you have about online student learning?

Domestic and international current events mean that media arts students need to be aware of safe and secure ways to document their digital works as participant or bystanders. Witness is a site to understand rights and privacy, and its strength is as a multilingual resource. I invite this audience to critique recommendations, be it a website or article. Here's one for consideration, "How to View, Edit, and Remove Location and Other EXIF Data from Your Photos," which appeared in Gadgets 360. Is this a useful blog post? Accurate? If not, forward suggestions for this type of topic coverage.

Future blog entries will highlight something in the news, remind us of SPE's past Exposure articles that remain useful in the classroom today, and/or comment on matters related to creating a visual narrative from diverse perspectives. Send your recommendations, announcements, or suggestions for blog posts to info@spenational.org.
