Frameworks for Inspired Learning: Art Teacher Professional Development Day

Spend the day exploring a variety of impactful methods for fostering inspired learning in the studio classroom.

Arts learning is inspired learning – learning that thrives not only through demonstrated outcomes but through meaningful processes. Through hands-on exploratory learning, arts education fosters curiosity, creativity, imagination, and innovation, while encouraging learners to develop authentic, relevant, innovative, and engaging ways of creating and expressing ideas. The frameworks that support inspired learning vary, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. In this all-day professional development workshop for art teachers, participants will explore multiple frameworks for inspired arts learning. Several breakout sessions will also be offered.
