Today The Art of Education is excited to announce a brand new online course: Project Based Art Room!
This class is unique because it incorporates a wide variety of collaborative and project-based models from the art education and general education world. You will have a chance to immerse yourself in each, and develop a customized roadmap to use these initiatives in your classroom right away.
The resources in this class are vast and wide. You will find rich planning documents, resources, and case studies from art teachers around the country who are implementing these plans with success. You will also have the chance to talk with teachers from around the world and get instant feedback on your own ideas, plans, and concerns.
Art educators must not only be at the table when discussing project-based curriculum, we must be the leaders! Through this class, you will research the most popular collaborative education models today, encompassing both school-wide initiatives and project work exclusive to the art room. Topics explored include Design Thinking, Makerspaces, STEAM/STEM, PBL (Project-Based Learning), School-Wide Collaborative Projects, Arts Integration, and much more!
Participants will leave the class with a better understanding of project-based work that will benefit an individual program, as well as a plan to actively re-design and customize a collaborative curriculum. If you are ready to gain the confidence to move forward with collaborative learning models enhancing the 4Cs (critical thinking and problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity), join us! Become a leader in your own classroom and school!
You can enroll in this class today to earn 3 Graduate Credits or 120 PD Contact hours in just 5 weeks! The inaugural run date is this April. The course will also run in May, June, July, and August.
