In the 21st Century, university professors are teaching students who want immediate feedback as to their progress. Recent research (Chan, 2007) provides evidence that using multimedia, computer-based teaching methods in Art Appreciation and Art History courses promotes student engagement in the learning process. This workshop will introduce educators to uses of software programs such as BlackBoard and TurningPoint in conjunction with interactive technology like SmartBoard.

Dr. Cynthia Andreas

Assistant Professor, Humanities Department, College of Arts & Sciences, Lynn University, Boca Raton, Florida, USA

I've been an Art Teacher in both public and private schools since graduating from American University, in Washington DC, in 1970. I returned to school in 1980 to study for my M.A. in Art Therapy from the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, CA. From 1982 to 1998, I worked in inner city schools all over the country as a Special Education Art Teacher. In 1998, I returned to school to earn my Ph.D. in Art Education and Art Therapy from Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. My Ph.D. was completed in 2005 with a dissertation topic of Promotion of Visual Perceptual Development through Therapeutic Art Education. I've been teaching at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL for 5 years, and am currently the Art History Professor.

Doctoral Candidate, Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, Lynn University, Boca Raton, Florida, USA

I've been an Art Appreciation instructor for 10 years in Taiwan. I'm presently a doctoral candidate at Lynn University, and have just completed a pre-test/post-test quantitative research study on the Effects of Hybrid and Traditional Face-to-Face Teaching on Learning Styles and Learning Outcomes in Higher Education Art Appreciation Courses. I plan to share these research results at the conference with workshop attendees.
