This course is will provide you with a better understanding of the contextual factors for teaching visual methods online. We focus on the legal context for creating media, the languages of instruction and the availability of technology. During the course, participants will have the opportunity to explore for themselves the particular context in which they teach, as the effects of these factors are different between different universities and different national contexts.
