"STEM + Art = STEAM." The emphasis on art and design that the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) has—in their words"championed" has impact not just on students of art/design and artists, but also in driving home the importance of the arts for innovation. Whether in their science or humanities classes, students are increasingly asked to incorporate multimedia approaches to complete their assignments. This gestures not only at the importance of multimedia skills in a technology-based economy, but also to the fact that students rely heavily on the internet and web-based content. Given this emphasis, how does one go about evaluating the originality of these projects and providing feedback online?
Join us for the second of our Back2School sessions presented by the Turnitin Professional Development Team. We will demonstrate ways to use Turnitin to evaluate the originality of visually-based student work and share tips and strategies for leaving effective feedback for students on that work that incorporate visual elements.
