Professional Learning: A Shift in the Field of Arts Education Towards Applied Creativity

(View Complete Item Description)

With increasing challenges facing communities, schools, and young people, the field of arts education must remain agile and responsive. Over the last five years - since the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act - and especially over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the arts education happening in schools and communities has quickly adapted and reimagined its intentions and outcomes. Educationalist, scholar, and social entrepreneur, Jeff M. Poulin will share a presentation tracing these adaptations and reimaginations through the lenses of public policy, pedagogy, and social justice practice. He will share findings from studies published in 2019-2021 providing attendees with insights into possible futures for arts education post-Pandemic, more integrated with social justice, and how arts education leaders can continuously adapt.
