Workshop-based teaching in Fashion & Textiles

Workshop-based teaching in Fashion & Textiles

Last year’s restrictions and this year’s move to concurrent teaching modes have proven a big challenge to the core principles of the course (belonging, diversity and connection with place). This case study explains some of these challenges and how they were overcome.

Discussions and exhibitions in Photography

Discussions and exhibitions in Photography

In this Photography course, international students attend classes remotely and concurrently with their face to face peers. This case study examines how discussions and exhibition critiques were adapted for those not able to be in the studio

Practical lessons in Goldsmithing

Practical lessons in Goldsmithing

The use of technology in this classroom has meant that hands on learning and instruction is still accessible to students who are unable to attend campus classes. While tasks and activities differ between online and face to face students due to equipment and material requirements a sense of belonging and equity has been retained in delivery.

Fashion lecturer Dr. Carolina Quintero Rodriquez takes us through how she sets up her concurrent classroom to enable collaboration between the students and herself. With the use of Teams, OneNote and OBS she creates an engaging and collaborative classroom experience.

Autonomy and asynchronous learning in Industrial Design

Autonomy and asynchronous learning in Industrial Design

In this case study, the student experience features a strong focus on developing student’s autonomous learning through asynchronous project-based activities. Teamwork and collaboration are also a focus, scaffolded through a series of assessable projects that iteratively develop teamwork and design intelligence across three sprints.
