Description of Session types:
* Best Practice Lectures are free to all attendees. They are a great opportunity to present content area information, tips and tricks, new lessons/activities, and highlights of helpful information for other educators and artists inside the classroom. Held in a traditional lecture style, the presenter leads the talk as attendees take in the shared information. Time for questions and answers typically occurs at the end. Bring your own device and projector to show images and videos on our large screens.
*Hands-On Workshops are available to conference attendees at an extra cost. These interactive sessions provide time for direct instruction from the presenter and ample time for attendees to engage in the art-making process, so they can take a sample of what has been taught to their classroom.
*Student Roundtables are free presentations by pre-service/college students sharing lessons and activities in a small group setting. These quick sessions allow for activities, dialogue, and Q&A among presenters and attendees.
*Informational Sessions are free presentations providing a broad range of focused information on a specific topic ranging from career readiness to cutting-edge programs or technology. This is a traditional lecture-style session that doesn’t quite fit the description of the Best Practice Lecture but still offers our attendees useful information.
Handouts for Best Practice Lectures, Hands-On Workshops, Pre-Service Student Roundtables, and Informational Sessions will be available during each individual presentation at the 2023 Fall Conference.
