Welcome to Principles of Visual Aesthetics!
David D’Andrade, Instructor. firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to being a space to find all relevant resources for the class, “Principles of Visual Aesthetics,“ our blog serves as a discussion forum, and allows you to reflect on your learning, or to report on and/or critique ideas related to visual culture. Your posts are public (beyond the class). This makes the assignment more meaningful, and encourages you to do your best work.
Ground Rules for Participation in Class Blog:
1. Respect others’ rights to hold opinions and beliefs that differ from your own. Challenge or criticize the idea, not the person.
2. Read carefully what others have posted, even when you disagree with what is being said. Comments that you make (asking for clarification, sharing critiques, expanding on a point, etc.) should reflect that you have paid attention to the author’s post(s).
3. Support your statements. Use evidence and provide a rationale for your points.
