The Chinese Art Faculty Association held the online conference “What’s Next” on Friday, December 17th from 3pm to 5pm EST. The event was organized by the executive committee members Professor Peili Wang, Lawrence Tzuchi Yun, and Wei Dong.
At present, the whole world is troubled by the COVID epidemic. We must consider and adjust our lives, work, and studies with the epidemic as the starting point. Last year, the CAAFA Association has successfully held two online seminars on how to teach normally during the epidemic. The epidemic will eventually pass, so we must consider the future; what kind of changes the epidemic will bring to us and what we must do to adapt to life and work after the epidemic. The epidemic is both a challenge and an opportunity. As art educators, we will hold an online seminar on the development of art education after the epidemic. The theme is "What's Next? This seminar will provide each CAAFA member with a formal to exchange and share opportunities for academic development and conduct cutting-edge discussions on art education after the epidemic.
There were 8 professors sharing their lectures in presentations, including Professor XiaoLing Li, Naijun Zhang, Yan Sun, Xiaoxia Song, Li Zhang, Ting Zhou, Xia Gao, and Snow Yunxue Fu. Congratulations to Professor Li Zhang for winning the best presentation award from the vote of the CAAFA members at the end of the event. Professor Ziyuan Cong summarized the conference at the end and shared his congratulations to the continuing executive committee members.
