When institutions rapidly transformed studio, performance, and other arts courses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, how did arts faculty innovate? How can we contribute to future learning environments that currently overlook pedagogical or arts perspectives? This interdisciplinary charette explores how the Arts can shape online learning and teaching tools, a crucial transformative step towards more engaging, even delightful, learning and teaching experiences. Facilitated by members of UNLV College of Fine Arts (which comprises Architecture, Art/Graphic Design, Film, Music, Dance, Theater, and Entertainment Engineering Design), research scholars, and with experiences welcomed from workshop participants.

*The College of Fine Arts Faculty who have agreed to contribute, and without whom this would not be a transdisciplinary design charrette: Dean Nancy Uscher, Adam Paul, Ashley Doughty, Francisco Menendez, Genevieve Tremblay, Jeffrey Burden, Joshua Vermillion, Julian Kilker, Kimberly James, Michael Fong, Olga Townsend, Sean Slattery, Timothy Jones, Yvonne Houy.
