DotED is the name of ArtCenter’s customized LMS (learning management system). Every course that is offered at ArtCenter has an online counterpart in the DotED system, and is accessible via single sign-on from the Inside ArtCenter dashboard. DotED is a robust system that can be utilized as a simple file and resource repository for students, or as a hybrid teaching environment complete with assignments, quizzes, and active learning activities to encourage self-reflection and peer assessment.
A place to begin for faculty with questions is the Office of Faculty Development – a position created at ArtCenter in 2013 to support professional teaching development. Please contact Sam Holtzman, the Director of Faculty Development for help with syllabus and curriculum development, methods and manner of assessment, rubrics and tools for teaching, facilitation techniques, ELL support, and for other questions about pedagogy and best-practices. The Office of Faculty Development conducts the Orientation for New Faculty, a series of in-term workshops, and offers all faculty 1:1 classroom consultation and coaching sessions.
