Professional Development

A session by Patrick Fahey and Laura Cronen addressed the challenges of PD for art teachers.  We know –and research shows — teachers want PD, but there is a major disconnect between what teachers want and find effective and what administrators and PD developers think is most important. PD should be relevant by being different in every content, and delivered by someone who understands what they do. 


The K-12 art workshops they shared focused on the concept of Identity and included artmaking techniques and practice to meet these expectations.
