Has it been years since you’ve attended an Art Ed Conference? Maybe you’ve never made it to one, but wish you could. After hearing from art teachers all over the country, we realize PD isn’t one size fits all. You need opportunities that fit in your busy lifestyle and leave you inspired and motivated. The good news? Location doesn’t need to be a barrier anymore. Today the AOE team is thrilled to announce a PD opportunity for the 21st century – The AOE 2013 Online Conference – the very first National Online Conference, just for Art Teachers!
Why an online conference? Here is a special message from Jessica Balsley the Founder of The Art of Education. This video sums it up pretty well – please watch:
Yes, that’s right – an online Art Ed conference you can attend from the comfort of home, for a fraction of the price, with all of the same perks and benefits of a traditional conference (plus more).
I get it. Art teachers are people, too. You have family obligations, money is tight, and let’s face it, being an art teacher can be isolating. In continuing with our mission to provide art teachers with Ridiculously Relevant Professional Development AOE wants to fill in the gaps of your PD and provide you with MORE opportunities to learn in this profession to add to the already great things you are doing.
Please visit our conference page to get all the juicy details, including an early look at some of the great presentations we have in store. If you love the idea as much as we do, and can’t wait for the conference to start, be sure to sign-up and save 25% by taking advantage of early-bird pricing.
Since there aren’t comments on the main conference page, feel free to ask questions and share your thoughts and ideas with us in the comments section below. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
See you at the conference in June!
