 Breakout Session 1:

Contributing to Utah’s Community through Collage | Visual Art | Erinne Roundy: Let’s come together and learn about a select group of significant and diverse people from Utah’s past and present who have contributed to the community that we call “home”. We will then create a collage of these individuals on a CD sleeve housing a simple circle book highlighting one of these individuals of your choice.

Weaving in Social Learning: Creating Classroom Community through Inclusive Practice| Visual Art | Jonathan Hale: Come and explore the possibilities for using weaving as means of teaching grade level content and social learning.  Weaving is traditionally a social artform, in this session we will explore creating weaving as a whole group, small groups, and individually as a way to promote collaborative learning that engages students with diverse abilities and learning needs.  We will explore planning that weaves social learning experiences with integrated arts learning of Utah biomes through fiber arts.

Drama | Presenter TBA

Going Global: Social-Emotional Skills through Music & Children’s Literature | Music | Dr. Brittany Nixon May: Social-emotional functioning is imperative to learning. As teachers, it is important that we not only help our students acquire content knowledge and strategies for learning, analyzing, and synthesizing knowledge but also help them to develop social-emotional skills that are necessary in order to thrive in the classroom and community. In this interactive session, we will explore how multicultural music and children’s literature can be used to nurture social-emotional learning. 

Mapmaking with Children | Visual Art | Alisa Petersen: In this workshop, attendees will explore community and culture through maps. Participants will create mini-map samples using four hands-on processes and discuss ways to apply standards from all elementary grade levels to each process.


Breakout Session 2 :

Matrix of Intersectionality (Card Game) | Keynote | Dr. Nicole R. Robinson (extended workshop that ends in session 3): Participants will explore cultural connections through the process of reflexivity, critical consciousness, and social agency. As each person has several identities—some visible, some invisible—that interplay in the daily experience, this process, begins with understanding each persons’ own social identity and it transpires when engaged children in our classrooms. Social categories include education, gender, locality, sex, race, age, religion, sexual orientation, class, citizenship, language ability, and dis/ability. 

This session will be technology inspired and very interactive.

Makey Makey in the Elementary Classroom | Media Art | Alisa Petersen (extended workshop that ends in session 3): Learn to combine easy coding, visual art, and any core subject using Makey Makey and Scratch. Participants will explore the basics then create a simple project using Visual Thinking Strategies.

Drama | Presenter TBA

Ten-minute movement lessons I can do in my classroom | Dance | Ashley Boyack: This workshop will provide the classroom teacher with ten-minute creative movement ideas teachers can use with all ages k-6th grade. They will also brainstorm immediate ideas on how they can integrate movement into areas of the curriculum.  

Contributing to Utah’s Community through Collage | Visual Art | Erinne Roundy: Let’s come together and learn about a select group of significant and diverse people from Utah’s past and present who have contributed to the community that we call “home”.

Keynote and Presenter Bios:  


Keynote
 

Dr. Nicole R. Robinson most recently served the Associate Vice President for Equity and Diversity and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs Leadership Fellow at the University of Utah. Before joining the faculty in 2013 as the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Presidential Endowed Professor, she served on the faculty at three research, urban-serving, anchor institutions including Syracuse University, University of Memphis, and Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Robinson is nationally acclaimed as an educator, scholar, speaker, and author; and has presented her research at national and international conferences, published in several of the industry’s leading research journals, and authored two academic textbooks. She has committed her life’s work to transforming educational and organizational cultures through systemic change processes centered around diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Dr. Robinson has earned national recognition for her partnership and pipeline models and her ability to create sustainable, large-scale professional learning communities in urban school districts. One of her most notable partnership models, the MSM Project (Middle School Memphis Project), implemented a "retooling" design to improve teacher effectiveness of middle school music teachers in Memphis City Schools (now Shelby County Schools); then, a district of 125,000 students. Due to the success of this model, large urban districts across the country implemented components of the model to improve teacher effectiveness in their communities. Dr. Robinson now utilizes similar models to transform organizational cultures into more inclusive organizations.

As a scholar, Dr. Robinson researches issues of access to quality education for traditionally racialized and marginalized children, socio-cultural inequities in academic practices, and (re)conceptualizing methods to develop a more critical consciousness for inclusive excellence. Dr. Robinson is regularly invited to speak on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion and to provide diversity education sessions to various audiences.

Recently, Dr. Robinson launched Cultural Connections by Design, LLC, a diversity education consulting company that develops the critical consciousness and intercultural competence of K-12 and higher education educators to develop culturally responsive pedagogical practices that ultimately increases the academic success of all students. Also, she focuses on organizational change and helps organization shifts cultural climates in order to capitalize and leverage “differences” in a way that engages everyone as organizational partners— ultimately, yield maximum productivity. Her research-based professional development sessions and innovative teaching tools has been used at public school, colleges and universities, healthcare institutions, and corporations across the country.

Dr. Robinson began her teaching career as an elementary and middle school music teacher in Durham Public Schools and Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools in North Carolina. She earned a B.A. and M.M. in Music Education from North Carolina Central University and a Ph.D. in Music Education from The Florida State University.

Erinne Roundy:
From the moment Erinne could pick up a writing utensil (which I’m sure was a black Pilot G2 pen) she has been practicing her penmanship, doodling to stay alert in meetings, writing about her deepest secrets, and solving problems creatively in sketchbook after sketchbook after sketchbook after sketchbook…(well, you get the picture).  So it is no surprise that she graduated in the arts from WSU in Visual Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design. Many years later when her “original” last child started school, and having spent countless volunteer hours at her children’s’ school teaching art, she realized it was time to make a career out of it. As Erinne really enjoyed the educational atmosphere of young minds and wanted to be surrounded by them all the time she went back to get her secondary teaching license.  Currently she is teaching ArtsBridge Jr.-Photography, Book Arts and Painting at NDPA, a K-12 Spanish Immersion charter school in Layton, as well as serving as the Program Assistant for the Arts Learning Collaborative at Weber State University.


Jonathan Hale is an art educator, special educator, and art therapist. He has worked as an art teacher in a public charter in the Detroit Metro area, as an art educator and art therapist in a residential treatment center, and is currently an art integrationist in the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Art Learning Program in two public schools. As a BTS teacher, Jonathan works with mainstream students, and in a special education school with students with multiple and severe disabilities. Jonathan is interested in the role of art education in social development and has partnered with the University of Utah's Kelby McIntyre- Martinez and Kristen Paul to develop and implement art inclusion programming that brings together students with disabilities into his mainstream elementary art classroom. Jonathan was the 2019 U of U CFA Art Educator Award recipient and received the 2017 Sorenson Legacy Award for an Exemplary Program in the state of Utah for his work at his two schools.

Throughout her career as a dance artist and educator, she has presented and taught for school districts, universities, and non-profit organizations both nationally and internationally. Kelly is honored to work as the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program Coordinator, and looks forward to sharing her passion for arts education with the Weber State University region.
