I'm sharing a video (or "learning object") I created over the summer in an online course here at OSU taught by Dr. Funk in the Art Administration, Education & Policy department. I have reservations about posting it, because it is VERY rough around the edges and WAY too long - BUT it's important for anyone undergoing the "going gradeless" journey to be transparent and vulnerable because we are after all modeling risk-taking for our students. So while this video is sure to be redone before the next go of this class in the Spring, I'm nevertheless posting it for you all as more justification for this approach. I have this posted online for my students on our class site and see it mostly as a tool for any students who are absent the first day or who might want more explanation of "going gradeless."
What video or learning object could you make this year to introduce your methods (or madness?) to your students?
I'll mostly be blogging about my experiences teaching. I teach a class online right now called Teaching K12 Art Online where I'll be exploring art online with art teachers. I also currently teach a (formerly?) face-to-face course called Visual Culture: Investigating Diversity & Social Justice which is an art, critical writing, and research course for undergrads. Before this, I taught a class called Art Curriculum & Concepts for Teachers where I was experimenting with cooperative & creative teaching integrating art and "going gradeless" with preservice early childhood education majors.
