  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a “reactive” experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Holly Tempo: 2008 TLC Technology Grant Report


Excerpt:

Project Implementation:

In late January 2008, my class of eight students attended a workshop presented by Heather Cleary on how to create e-portfolios. I spent many hours researching existing e-portfolios on the Otis website. I made suggestions to students about how they might want to structure their portfolios based on what I observed to be the more successful examples. Students were then instructed to create an e-portfolio, or update existing ones. By mid-February, everyone had a new or updated e-portfolio on O-Space. I also created an e-portfolio for myself for the first time.

Specific project activities included the following:

  • Attendance at workshops presented by Heather Cleary (two for me; one for students in class)
  • Researching e-portfolio offerings on O-Space and identifying best practices
  • Helping students troubleshoot e-portfolio creation/updates
  • Monitoring student e-portfolio activity
  • Creation of my own e-portfolio
  • Researching Fine Arts Department presence on e-portfolios
  • Sharing project with Fine Arts Department Assistant Chair, Christine Reynolds
  • Surveying student satisfaction with e-portfolios
  • Compiling survey data and writing report

To access the e-portfolios from my class, please click on the following links [NB: some e-portfolios may no longer be available]:
