Maine Arts Assessment Initiative Webinar

May 6, 2014

Providing you a special professional development opportunity just for teacher appreciation week


Rob Westerberg and Catherine Ring will be hosting their third 2014 webinar in a series of four as part of the  Maine Arts Assessment Initiative (MAAI).  The webinar entitled “LD 1422: Proficiency And The Arts” will take place on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 from 3:30 – 4:30.  Primary discussions will be based around:

  • What is LD 1422 & what does it mean?
  • What is “proficiency”?
  • What does proficiency in the Arts look like?
  • Next steps

The overarching goals of this webinar will be to help arts educators move forward proactively as our schools and our state moves toward a proficiency based diploma. While LD 1422 is spelled out specifically for high Schools, the domino effect has critical ramifications for all PK-12 music, art, dance and drama teachers.

For best chances of success please join the webinar 10 minutes early and do the following:

  1. Join the meeting by clicking:  Enter as a guest.

  2. Use a hard-wire connection, not wireless.

At the conclusion of the webinar there will be a link for you to complete a short feedback survey. You will receive one contact hour for completing the feedback form (issued at the end of May).

Please be sure to join for what promises to be an engaging, insightful hour on the topic that will continue to impact every one of us as arts educators in the state of Maine! One contact hour is available for participating. If you miss the session live it will be archived afterwards for your viewing. Please watch the Maine Arts Education blog for the link to it.
