Professor at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts, Maja Vukadinović, participated in a conference dedicated to digital education, same as last year. The conference was held from April 8 through 10 and organized by the EdTech Centre Western Balkans.
Professor Vukadinović gave a lecture titled Digital Technologies in Art Education where, among other things, she presented how the Faculty of Contemporary Arts coped with the consequences of the pandemic and the transition to online learning.
Digital technologies have changed the way we create
Starting from the premise that digital technologies have changed the way we create art, and learn about it, she examined the possibilities of applying various tools and new technologies in university teaching, with special emphasis on visual and dramatic arts.
The lecture suggests that the interactivity of lectures is particularly important in the period of the pandemic, and the transition of many educational institutions to online learning. The challenges of transferring knowledge of visual and dramatic arts in these new circumstances are great, but the possibilities of modernizing teaching are also great: from virtual tours of museums, creating digital student portfolios, to video conferencing and recording acting rehearsals.
“Bringing art and technology together has the power to create new ways to engage students”, explained Maja Vukadinović at the end of her lecture.
