Call for Instructional Videos

Art Volt and TEMPO are looking for creative alumni to imagine and produce video tutorials for digital and analog pedagogical tools. Subject matter will include: “how-to” videos for at-home art-making methods; tips for documenting 2D, 3D, and performance-based works; as well as showcasing how to innovate on digital platforms, based on examples of online artworks in the unIT-e resource library. Each video will be approximately 4–10 minutes in length, and will be made available to students, faculty, and alumni through Moodle and the Art Volt Website.

These videos should represent the diversity of medium, practices, and disciplines that exist within the Faculty of Fine Arts.

Selected candidates will receive a $250 honorarium for each video tutorial.

Skills

  • Curious about and facile with technology, and love looking at how other artists and educators are making (and breaking!) online platforms.

  • Proficient in video editing software, with the ability to produce professional-quality videos.

  • Ready to experiment with digital and analog platforms to find new (and re-purpose “old”) modes to engage fine arts students.

  • Keen to get pedagogical experience within a team setting. 

  • Excellent oral communication skills.

  • Excited to help the Faculty of Fine Arts make the transition to remote learning, and ready to bring your own personal perspective as a recent student to the table!
