Right Brain/Left Brain: Balancing Digital Art Curricula

Forum
Thursday, 3 August, 1 - 2 pm
Room 157

Developing curriculum for digital art programs is an evolutionary process. Technology is constantly changing and creating a need for new courses, or revision of old ones. The level of digital literacy of students entering both undergraduate and graduate programs is also continuing to rise. Traditional art programs contained components of theory, art history, critique and studio work. Digital art programs have additional components that focus on software instruction and technological literacy. The goal of this forum is to help attendees gain a better understanding of how to balance all of these elements to provide the best possible educational experience for the student. It encourages participants to share ideas and opinions on how their curricula have changed and what they see as important trends for the future.
