Teaching the Arts Online
The following is an offering of online learning resources for arts learning in dance, drama, music, and visual arts. These resources were compiled by professional arts specialists on the BYU ARTS Partnership Leadership in response to the social distancing mandates from the State of Utah during the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020. It is not an exhaustive list and there are many more resources to be found on social media and other websites. These resources support the development of online instructions for students engaged in distance learning as well as regular instructional time.
One of the key learning outcomes of our professional development programs is to understand the social and emotional benefits of the arts. We all need sources of energy and resiliency during times such as a global pandemic. We hope that in addition to providing online resources for teachers navigating new territory in distance learning that we might also offer the reminder to destress with music, drawing in a sketchbook, or taking a walk in nature. Create your experience by setting an intention each day and living artfully. Listen for the music and dance!
It is important for teachers to be creative, collaborative, and connected in order to help students be creative, collaborative, connected, and ACTIVE during a time of online instruction. Please let us know if you have other needs or resources to contribute to this page. Our collegial collaborations are beneficial for sharing solutions for online learning and other challenges ahead.
