Professors, students move final projects online to engage communities

April 23, 2020

Professors, instructors, and students across the nation are moving various kinds of exhibitions online to showcase students’ term works. Holland College, for example, has moved the exhibition of “All about Hue” –a showcasing of School of Visual Arts students’ works–to the school’s online gallery. Meanwhile, art history and museology students and a lecturer at Université du Québec à Montréal have taken their project to organize an exhibit online, showcasing the works of four artists that explores the fragility and complexity of human relationships with living things. In a bit of a different vein, 105 students participating in the University of Fraser Valley’s CityStudio Abbotsford Hububb—a show-and-tell community building event—are delivering their projects addressing civic challenges virtually. “I hope this new method of collaboration in experiential learning will further highlight the role that the higher education plays in the community,” said UFV Experiential Education Coordinator Larissa Horne.
