Arts Assessment Initiative Webinar: Number 2

October 25, 2011

2nd in the series

Rob Westerberg and Catherine Ring are excited to be bringing the second webinar (in a series of five) as part of the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative (MAAI).  The webinar will take place on November 2, 2011 from 3:30 – 4:30, and the topic is Building an Online Arts Education Community with You.  The three main points will include:

  • Creating an online network of support for ongoing work
  • Providing tools to use for assessment and integration into teaching
  • Providing resources on arts assessment

Catherine Ring and Rob Westerberg

In this webinar, they will be discussing various ways of using technology to connect with others.  They’ll also talk about ways teachers can contribute to the wealth of resources that only a collaborative effort such as the MAAI can bring to the field of education. Arts educators know full well how important it is to have strong relationships with each other, as often work is in isolation in schools and communities. Technology now makes it possible to connect, to have rich conversations, to share the best practices in teaching and learning out there, to stay current on education policy and to share the wealth of resources we all have with each other.  Wow.  What a great way to help improve student learning in the arts!

Guests will include leaders in technology education, and arts education teacher leaders closely involved in the Initiative. So join Rob and Catherine as they facilitate another rich conversation on November 2nd!
