Frustrations of teaching

No one is paying attention

Keywords: disinterest, low motivation, disengaged
Relevance:
    how does this influence or bring value to me > what's in it for them?
      what is the context: eg. portfolio content, expertise, portfolio pieces
    What is the risk for implications from not listening

Approach

Deep focus

    Compounding and building upon knowledge

Getting comfortable with teaching

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

    Worthiness
    hHo is going to deem you worthy? Did successful youtube motion design channel became worthy before they start their channel?

Deborah Fowler

Teach the concept first, then the technique

    For example, the phyllotaxis assignment was an exercise in learning how to use expressions, relative references, and creating controls. Fowler uses the creative to inform technical teaching.

Deep focus

    In her lessons,go really deep with a single concept by showcasing variant techniques and methods
    walkthrough potential and common problems, and how to troubleshoot them.

Thoughtfulness and curation

    most content covered in class is written on her website
    Building a knowledge base wiki that students can refer to
    Deep focus content covered for students to explore and go above assignment requirement

Entagma

    visual diagrams to explain concepts in the beginning
    refer to documentation for syntax, get people to help troubleshoot themselves

Syllabus

β€Œ

Establishing expectations & correcting/ converging thinking:

β€Œ
    What do you want to get out of this class instead of "getting better at AE" and if you want to be good at AE what does that mean? What do you need to learn? (eg. expressions, layer styles, animation, generative design).
    What are you expect to get out of the teacher /professor?
    Measuring your own success vs grade quantifier
    Grading will be much stricter in the beginning
β€Œ

Measuring Success

β€Œ
What is success to you? And how badly do you want it? Your ability to take action is based on that motivation. It is totally acceptable if you do not desire it strongly just as long as:
β€Œ
You are okay with the consequences. For example. You are snacking every day, not exercising, living a sedentary lifestyle. We are know the importance of healthy diet and exercise but do we take it seriously? Do we take seriously enough to do something about it.You are a Master of your reality. These people are outliers in world because they formulate their own opinions and beliefs to drive their life. They cannot can't differentiate between work and play; and pursue their earnestly because it brings them joy and fun. With that mindset, only time can show how successful they can get. It takes some time to identify your passion or your way of life, and it doesn't need to be. It will come naturally.
β€Œ
To expound on this matter, ask yourself "what level of discomfort am I willing to

What is creativity to you?

β€Œ
One of the toughest things to do as an artists or designers is to develop a "style" or rather a focus. It is just so easy to be a generalist if you do not have a clear idea of what exactly you want. Above is framework to think about how we want to approach creativity and narrow our focus. Try to plot yourself in the above diagram, and see where you lie.
β€Œ

Building teams

β€Œ
    Class will be split into 2 teams with their chosen names, each team will split into small section of 3 -5
β€Œ

Midterm - training observational & problem solving - Lynus test

β€Œ
    open-book, search the internet and tutorials, you can work with your section but you need to submit an individual animation file and their project files
    student will watch an animation I prepared, and recreate it exactly as they see it
β€Œ

Getting better

β€Œ
Master-copyimaginary apprenticeship - working with the bestDesigning with Constraints
β€Œ

Finals - The great collaboration - battle is won before it is ever fought

β€Œ
    compulsory working in the team - how do you communicate, share files, breakdown tasks
    grading performed by the team
β€Œ

Identifying and developing your visual language

β€Œ
Scour any media (preferably visual of course) that piqued your interest; go with the mindset of "anything that looks visually pleasant to me".Try to find patterns in the things you chose; be it colors, compositions, subject matter,Arrange it into mood-boards, and write a paragraph about why you like the things you chose The outcome here is a self-portrait of our "taste"

Beauty of Youth & Risks

When you are young; you are not earning a lot which means you can jump around any divisons or department and learn new things. This is not true when you are older, you are earning a bigger paycheck, you cannot afford to start all over again at junior position. Once you go up; you cannot come down or jump around.

Unsorted notes

β€Œ
Learning & education ` The future of education radical (Neumaier?), accessible (location, time, money), the Futur mission, it is a state of mind, more than one mentor, assemble the best and the brightest to share their insights and wisdom. The school as a physical resource - which is still too expensive. Why not create that WeWork and creative space that Peter Clark spoke of. It is a marketplace, place of work. Freemium model; give as much as you can you without hurting yourself. Teaching students a way of life rather than a series of "work" you need to get through.
β€Œ
Our expectations we have expectations of what education and learning should give us and do > tangle outcomes and results > grades (quantifier of success), portfolio piece, what is this going to do for me, skills training

5 things I learnt from
2
Despite the abundance of online courses available, people are still going to art school and the reasons include getting a degree to get a job, learning from the best professors, making new friendships and fostering new connections. I think the beauty of college is the human connections that you make,
3
To define the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. What if the system that is being taught is outdated?
4
Shift from education to literacy - form our personal opinion, possessing duality to hold other people opinions with no judgement, and make informed decisions.

Mission statements of online schools
β€Œ
Mograph Mentor: Mentorship & Training From The Industries Best. Mograph Mentor is an online motion graphics school. We help motion graphics artist focusing on career and portfolio development. Study the artistic and technical skills you need to take your portfolio to the next level.
β€Œ
At School of Motion we are reimagining art school. World-class training, on your schedule from anywhere on Earth.which is not true because you teach people how to work but they don't know how to think. Though I believe there are individuals who learn more as they work. Skill-based learning is great but it is sufficient? Just like MGM, it focus on artistic and technical skill. SOM is reimagine art school like a factory.
β€Œ
The Futur Mission: Teach one billion creatives how to make money doing what they love... without feeling gross. Eliminate the biggest barriers to education: cost, time, and accessibility. Gather the most creative minds, technologists, producers and inspirational professionals to teach 21st century skills, while leveraging media platforms, social networks, and distance based learning tools. That sounds modern, disruptive and unlike any school out there. That’s because we believe the❗️future of school isn't a school at all β€” classrooms have no walls, students are never late, and classes are always in session.
β€Œ
It is hard to do two things at once, the Futur does not do AE tutorials but lots of wisdom and conversations. The online motion design school focus on giving people the skills and a little bit of the mindset.
β€Œ
Hence the balance is not choosing one but choosing both.
β€Œ
As for NSC, it is still my personal myth building so I want to be known for the only youtube channel that does after effects tutorials on the technical and coding part of Motion Design. It's not something that is taught in school and there are not alot of people who does this sort of content.
β€Œ
I did these things unasked, and solely for the joy and fulfillment from sharing knowledge with my peers and seeing them succeed and do their best work.
β€Œ
Time & attention space & priority
β€Œ
practical application > project-based learning - illusion of mastery - we see it as a means
β€Œ
context and intetion of artists - factual & objective look -
β€Œ
reading a book - not a priority
β€Œ
creating is thinking , saying sth, identity, expression,
β€Œ
Agree - accessible, taste of Motion Design,
β€Œ
if everyone is doing it, it's not difficult
β€Œ
in-person network opportunities - foster bond and connection , trust , small things , genuine, human touch , interactions
β€Œ
we expect education and school to give us a job / not to think or lead a better life / etiquettes conduct professionalism / design identity maturity / trying something new and different, and getting out of comfort zone, way of life / lifestyle, transformation
β€Œ
knowledge and learning as entitled just because I pay a fee
β€Œ
dont' go to art school; job > do SOM
β€Œ
regret art school - what have you been thinking / how have you matured
β€Œ
learning as lifestlye- read books, curious, self driven
β€Œ
go to class to have that discussion
β€Œ
building yourself up as opposed to being attached to results mindset
