An Experience Ahead of its Class
As an art teacher, you’re required to undergo regular professional development. Learning, though, shouldn’t feel like something you have to do – it should be something you want to do! Our online graduate courses are engaging, relevant, practical, and approachable.
On Your Schedule - At Your Speed
We get it — you’re busy. Professional learning shouldn’t be a burden, it should be convenient. Our courses are accelerated to help you get what you need and apply it in your art room. There are no required log-in times, so you’ll never be caught off guard. In addition, you’ll receive full access to the complete course on day one. Assignments are typically due on the same day each week to keep organization simple.
Every AOE course is created by art teachers, taught by art teachers, and attended by art teachers. There’s no need to “make a connection” – everything here has been designed just for you.
Technology as a Learning Tool
If you’ve never tried online learning, the technology might seem a bit intimidating. The truth is, it’s no more complicated than attaching a file to your email, browsing the web, or creating a digital presentation. You’ll probably learn some new things about technology in your AOE courses as well!
You’ve heard stories about classes where the instructor is nowhere to be found…what’s the point!? Our graduate instructors respond to every discussion and will provide value-added feedback on all your assignments. They engage on a meaningful and personal level with every class member.
Attend From Anywhere
If you’re like most art teachers, you’re always on the go. AOE Courses let you work from anywhere – your desk, your car, from home, or at school. You can use your laptop, a tablet; we’ve even had students use their mobile phone to submit assignments while on vacation!
Small Class Sizes
As an art teacher, you know how frustrating it can be when your room is too full and you’re stretched too thin. Thankfully, our class sizes are much smaller – a maximum of 15 students. So, get to you know your peers and enjoy the personal engagement from your instructor. You’re more than a number here.
Experienced and Passionate Instructors
Good instructors inspire learning and stretch your thinking! AOE employs instructors with innovative approaches to teaching, incredible interpersonal skills, and proven success in the art room. Since our instructors work remotely, we’re able to attract and employ the finest art teachers worldwide.
Each AOE Course comes with an assortment of handouts/downloads for you to take and put to work in your art room right away. Enjoy supplemental supports long after the course is over!
Efficient and Streamlined Courses
Don’t let the accelerated pace fool you. Our courses are designed with graduate level assignments, discussions, and learning expectations. AOE courses provide graduate-level rigor while instructors support you in your learning.
Convenient Class Platform
All AOE classes take place in our digital classroom powered by Schoology. In the online AOE classroom students engage in meaningful discussions and communicate with fellow art educators worldwide, as they create and share valuable instructional resources. Whether you’re a tech expert or a digital novice, you’ll feel right at home inside your AOE class.
