Mega-regional workshop UMF

January 19, 2013

A success!

art sessionAll the reports tell us that the first Maine Arts Assessment Initiative/MLTI Mega-regional workshop was a worthwhile professional development for all those involved. Twenty five educators participated in the MAAI workshop that was held at University of Maine in Farmington.

theatre segmentUMF students were still on winter break so the campus was fairly quiet during the all day event. Participants attended three sessions led by MAAI teacher leaders during the day and had a variety of choices at the free workshop.

  • Drew Albert and Ashley Smith presented Getting Started: Incorporating Meaningful Assessment Within the Large Ensemble
  • Leone Donovan presented Title: A Skeptic’s Exploration of Rubrics
  • Susan Jones presented Theatre Games: Learning Through Doing
  • Gloria Hewett presented Formative and Summative Assessment Two Big Words with Practical Applications in an Art Class
  • Susan Beaulier presented There is no I in ART; Working Together to Promote Quality Art Education for all Learners
  • Alice Sullivan and Jim Wells presented Using Digital Tools to Capture Music Assessments
  • Ann Marie Hutton and Lindsey Farnham presented Making Art with MLTI
  • Tim Hart presented Capture the Performance! Using MLTI tools to record, review and share music, dance and theatre assessment pieces
