The CPS Arts Education Plan identified the importance of offering consistent and relevant professional development to all CPS stakeholders, including instructors, principals, school leaders, parents, and community arts partners. We know that when schools, teachers, arts specialists, teaching artists, and arts organizations participate in professional development together the work is strengthened and each of these stakeholders becomes better prepared to provide the highest quality arts education experiences for students. To stimulate and nurture collaborative work between teachers and arts education partners, Ingenuity and the CPS Department of Arts Education are excited to present this year’s Arts Education Conference: Collaborating for Quality.
We are thrilled to provide an opportunity to increase knowledge, gain skills, and develop the vital relationships needed
to make our individual and shared work successful.
This conference will provide:
- Training and tools for:
• Arts education partners and teaching artists on Ingenuity’s new Arts Partner Quality Framework
• Arts teachers and school administrators on the new CPS Arts Content Framework
• All stakeholders on moving the arts sector toward developing a shared language and vision for high-quality arts experiences for students
- Insights from arts teachers and arts partner practitioners working in the field
