Visual Arts Summary 5th - 11th May 2014

Kia ora everyone,

Another quiet week on our list, a busy beginning to the new term, or the beginnings of hibernation as we move into late autumn? Virginia attended the free print workshop in Auckland with Dagmar Dyke and Alexis Neal on Saturday, and let us know that is was 'wonderful and rewarding' - thanks to ASATA for organising this.

Keep connected by sharing - how are teaching inquiries progressing in the visual arts - do you have a story that might be inspiring or thought provoking for others? Challenges that others may have suggestions or ideas for?

How does your department manage external moderation - what digital methods are used to make the evidence collection and storage easier, and how do students participate in this process?
