Remote Teaching of the Arts in a Time of COVID-19


COVID-19 pandemic resulted in educators making a sudden shift to a largely online modality in teaching. For educators used to studio teaching, this change could be radical in terms of teaching approaches. Arts-based pedagogies tend to be studio-based and experiential. The presentation discusses the effects of COVID-19 pandemic on art and music pedagogies in a tertiary institution, and how art and music tutors adapted arts-based pedagogies for online teaching. Six tutors in the Arts disciplines were interviewed on their perspectives on how online pedagogy has shaped their arts and music teaching practices. This small-scale study will contribute our understanding on online teaching for the Arts, and will suggest ways the various ways forward to sustain teaching of Arts during COVID-19.
