Browse the catalog of resilient teaching methods below. They are categorized by applicability to hybrid and fully remote teaching modes in relation to performance, studio, and lab courses. They are also rated by the level of effort for implementation.
360 video for more immersive performances and demonstrations
360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback on normal flat display the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama. It can also be played on a displays or projectors arranged in a sphere or some part of a sphere.
Assign LinkedIn Learning courses for skill development
LinkedIn Learning is an on-demand learning solution designed to help you gain new skills and advance your career. LinkedIn Learning is available at no cost to all active faculty, staff (including temporary employees) and students at the University of Michigan. Formerly Lynda.com, this service is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology, and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals.
The flexible schedule option refers to other schedule variants such prioritizing P/S/L courses over all other types and then expanding the schedule to accommodate more students in a less dense manner or offering students additional options about how to complete the P/S/L portion of a course. Another example is to use student home distance from campus to drive the schedule. Students who live far away might start earlier, and could finish their in-person P/S/L before a certain date, thus reducing travel and staggering start times. Local students would start later and finish after a certain date.
LEARNING ANALYTICS is the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimising learning and the environments in which it occurs.
Learning Analytics Role in Online Learning:Mitigate anxiety and uncertainty Identify possible intervention Provide students a sense of control and greater awareness Surface patterns of engagement with learning content Provide nudges towards effective study behaviors
Low latency audio conferencing for live rehearsal
One of the major issues with networked music performance is that latency is introduced into the audio as it is processed by a participant's local system and sent across the network. For interaction in a networked music performance to feel natural, the latency generally must be kept below 30 milliseconds, the bound of human perception. If there is too much delay in the system, it will make performance very difficult since musicians adjust their playing to coordinate the performance based on the sounds they hear created by other players. Tools such as Jamulus or JackTrip allow for the fine control of audio latency fo the purpose of allowing musician to perform in time over a network.
Screen recorders for drawing demonstrations
Screen recordings can be an effective means of demonstrating design and drawing techniques as well as conveying lecture information. Using the built-in screen and a stylus pen, users create screen recordings that can be uploaded as a media file to Canvas or shared directly.
Support team-based and peer-to-peer learning
A substantial component of many lab, studio, design and performance courses are activities that engage students to work together. These may take the form of team projects, peer critique, or ensemble performance. While a team approach is not the exclusive domain of P/S/L courses, this approach is often central to attaining their learning objectives. In either scenario, we should support and preserve these activities as much as possible.
Synchronous conferencing with Zoom
Students can capture and upload video in the Canvas Discussion tool. The Kaltura integration adds an embed icon to the rich text editor, so instructors can create a discussion prompt to have students upload their performance and then get peer critique through the discussion threads.
