Conference Proposals Being Submitted










As part of the ongoing focus in our Arts Educator 2.0 project around advocacy and leadership, we will begin to look at professional arts education conferences as a source for personal knowledge building, as well as a means to share information about our work. Below are a list of conferences which you might find of interest, as well as information about the proposals which have been submitted by either project faculty or project participants on behalf of AE2.0. Check back to see if those proposals have been accepted and to find links to the presentation materials as they are created. Follow the conference/convention links to find out more about each event for yourself, and let your project leadership know if you'd like to attend.

This isn't really a conference, but ISTE's Learning and Leading with Technology magazine is soliciting articles:
L&L is ISTE’s flagship magazine, distributed to all members. We are always looking for interesting stories of how school or district personnel are using technology in their K–12 educational setting to improve teaching and learning.
Prerequisites: A story to tell and a way to capture that story in writing.
Time Commitment: Varies depending on article length and amount of research/writing time involved, but generally once your manuscript has been accepted for publication, it takes 2–5 additional hours.
Visit L&L’s Web site at http://www.iste.org/LL to read the submission guidelines, then contact Editor, Kate Conley, at kconley@iste.org or 1.541.434.8926 to discuss your story idea.

Collaborative Inquiry: A Transformative Model for Professional Learning
30 word description:
The ArtsEducator2.0 project allows teachers to work together to develop a collaborative pedagogy and to design meaningful, content-specific professional learning. Come join our discussion about inquiry-based learning for art educators.

150 word description:
Presenters will describe the ArtsEducator2.0 project, a federally funded grant initiative taking place in Pennsylvania, and invite discussion about inquiry-based learning for teachers in the arts. ArtsEducator2.0 provides opportunities for communities of inquiry comprised of art and music teachers to design a rigorous investigation into a topic of their own choosing. Research in art education has promoted a post-critical, dialogic pedagogy (Duncum, 2008) that takes place as part of an “attitude of exchange” (Garber, 2004, p. 5). In response to this call, ArtEducator2.0 utilized a dialogic pedagogy for professional learning, and in doing so, provided teachers with opportunities to observe and practice skills necessary to facilitate collaborative inquiry within their K-12 classroom contexts. In this way, ArtsEducator2.0, has generated "overlapping collaborative spaces" across smaller communities of inquiry.

Collaborative Inquiry as Professional Development

Also did this presentation at a training for the staff of the Perpich Center for Arts Education in Minnesota
What happens when arts educators are asked to identify and explore issues that directly affect their classroom practice? How does this model differ from traditional workshop-based professional development?

This session will explore ArtsEducator2.0, a federally-funded, inquiry-based professional development model currently serving music, theatre and visual arts teachers in a 3-county area in rural Pennsylvania. Session participants will have a chance to investigate documentation that has evolved from the project and discuss how collaborative inquiry might serve a need in their individual contexts.
