    Notes from past participants:

     

    The workload for the class was manageable – on top of working, life, etc.. and the content was so relevant. It’s a brilliant opportunity to connect with other art teachers and talk about “our” subject area. Loved the practical approach too – I will actually use the assignments that we developed in class. I also think it’s great to be able to share our Toolkits at the end. The class platform is very user-friendly – no problems with it all. Oh, and I really appreciated NOT having to be online at a certain time to connect with other classmates or participate in sessions. This was my first course with AOE and I’m impressed. Thanks for a great experience.

    I’m have recommended this class to coworkers because the Assessment in Art Education class applied to all age levels of students in our classes. It provided a lot of great assessment examples and information that can be used in the classroom right away. The feedback from classmates and the instructor was helpful as well. Thanks for a great class.

    Class was relevant and had immediate applicable tools to use in my instruction and assessment. I plan to take another AOE class in the near future.
