Thanks Pam for posting this information on the coursbeing offered
through Davis.

I have indeed been frantically working on this course for some time
now. (Which explains, in large part, my absence from discussions

SInce some of you may have an interest in this course, I'll add a few
additional comments here to what Pam posted:

The course I am developing is called Teaching Art Online and is
intended as an introductory course to using the Internet in art
classrooms. The course is wrapped around four units with the
following working titles, An Introduction to the Interent, Using the
Internet and World Wide Web to Support Art Instruction,
Student-Centered Approached to Internet Use in the Art Classroom, and
Issues Involving Internet Use in Art Classrooms. These topics will
be exploroed through online readings, activities, assignments, and

The logisitics of signing up for the course, etc., are all handled
through Davis Publications. Pam posted the pertinent information
regarding these details.

If anyone has questions regarding this course, email me at:
Also, if anyone has any suggestions for online readings, activities
or assignments for the Teaching Art Online course, I'm all ears (so
to speak.)

FYI: This introductory course is meant to complement another course
in the works that will be offered at a later date (hopefully in the
spring). This second course will explore comtemporary art themes
from the PBS series, Art:21. More on this later.

Now. . .back to work.
