Re-visioning art and design education: Nourishing collaborative creativity in virtual worlds
Apr 6 @ 09:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Compass Point Discussion Presenters: Yi Meng (SL: Emma de Pizan), Educators and Trainers; Xiangling Feng (SL: Belldance), Artists, Designers and Builders; Qian Wang (SL: Zoemmmua), Artists, Designers and Builders; Xinyi Wei (SL: Wuixinyi), Artists, Designers and Builders

Description: Today, much of the design work is collaborative and a group-oriented integrated process. This convergent process requires art and design education to provide new pedagogical spaces to nourish students’ creativity in a more collaborative sense. This presentation draws upon an empirical study and includes the teacher-researcher and three students-participants. They will use their own virtual world teaching and designing experience to elaborate how this technology affected collaborative creativity.

Participants will gain information about promoting collaborative creativity in art and design education
