Artists As Educators: Seminar Series

Calling all Teaching Artists interested in FREE Professional Development from The Kennedy Center!

September 23, 24 & 25, 2016  The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council will sponsor visiting Teaching Artist, Randy Barron for a dual seminar series for teaching artists working in school settings.

Seminar Series:

“Mapping the Journey: Planning Effective Residencies for Students”

The two-day Artists-as-Educators Seminar, Mapping the Journey: Planning Effective Residencies for Students is valuable to organizations that would like to establish a shared understanding with their teaching artists about the purpose and structure of residencies, criteria for quality, and a planning process.

The Residency Planning Seminar includes presentations, activities, and discussions to help participants examine and apply a process for planning effective arts-integrated residencies. Each participant receives an extensive binder of resource materials, which documents and extends the Seminar content.

Participation in the Seminar is limited to up to 15 teaching artists led by one Seminar Leader. The Seminar is valuable to teaching artists with a range of teaching experience – from highly experienced to less experienced. It is recommended that participants be teaching artists with at least some experience in teaching students.

“Anatomy of a Lesson: Designing Instruction”

The Kennedy Center’s Artists as Educators Seminar, Anatomy of a Lesson: Designing Instruction examines the impact of lesson design on teaching effectiveness and student learning.  In this Seminar, teaching artists identify the components of effective lessons, see them reflected in a lesson template, and apply their new understandings to plans for their own teaching.  Through participation in an example lesson, lively discussions, activities and presentations, teaching artists examine the steps of their own instruction to plan ways to better facilitate student learning.  A binder of valuable resource materials which document and extend the Seminar content is provided.
