For Educators: Cultivating Student-Driven Learning Experiences
Sat, April 22, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM CDT
Creating space for students to drive their own learning is a powerful way to help them discover their artistic voices, enable their agency, and motivate their continued growth.
Led by the Teen Arts Council (TAC), arts educators will use TAC’s teen-curated exhibition Correct Opinions as the jumping-off point for workshopping how students can drive their own learning in both classrooms and out-of-school spaces. Participants will have the opportunity to brainstorm and share how they might apply that knowledge to cultivate student-driven learning as part of their respective practices.
Presented by Arts + Public Life, After School Matters, and Amplify.
“Bring” (in your mind) either a project you have done before that you would like to create a student leadership opportunity within OR an idea for a project that you would love teen input into before you try it for your students.
This workshop is organized by Amplify at the University of Chicago. Amplify is a partnership of arts and cultural organizations that offer K–12 arts learning programs, including Arts + Public Life, Court Theatre, Logan Center for the Arts, Oriental Institute, and the Smart Museum of Art. Each Amplify partner offers a range of programs and resources including live theatrical and musical performances, museum field trips, out-of-school time programs, and more.
