June 25, 2015

Are you interested in using your art form to support children’s learning in all subjects? Arts integration that engages children of all abilities and backgrounds requires creative collaboration with classroom teachers. Teaching artists and school art teachers from across Vermont are encouraged to apply for participation in the third annual Arts Connect professional development program.

A Teaching Artist Professional Development Course

VSA Vermont, in partnership with the Integrated Arts Academy (IAA), the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Burlington City Arts, and the Vermont Arts Council is offering a three-credit graduate course for teaching artists to learn more about arts integration, Universal Design for Learning, and classroom collaboration.

The program will take place during the fall semester of the 2015-16 school year. It will consist of direct instruction in arts integration and Universal Design for Learning, online and in person reflection, classroom observation, and collaborative planning sessions. In addition, there will be an opportunity in January to present to the IAA faculty for consideration.

Program participants who complete the course will receive 3 graduate level credits through Saint Michael’s College and a stipend covering tuition costs.

To be considered for participation, applicants must be available to complete 6 hours of classroom observation , monthly online reflection, and to meet in-person.
