Lincoln Center Institute International Educator Workshop
July 27-29, 2012
University of North Carolina School of the Arts
Enhance your understanding of imaginative learning and continue to find new excitement in your teaching. Help your students become creative, conceptual thinkers prepared for the world beyond the classroom.
The Kenan Institute for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council will present a three-day advanced level professional development educator workshop on the campus of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts over the dates of July 27-29, 2012. The advanced-level workshop will be conducted by Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts In Education.
The Lincoln Center Institute International Educator Workshops are in-depth experiences in teaching and learning through imagination and the arts. These workshops, offered to pre-K through grade 12 teachers, school or arts administrators, teaching artists, curriculum developers, and college and university professors, are offered annually at national and international host sites. Professional development has been at the core of Lincoln Center Institute’s acclaimed arts curriculum since its inception. Workshops are developed and taught by Institute staff and teaching artists. For more information about LCI, visit www.lcinstitute.org.
Open only to participants who have completed the 5-day Lincoln Center Institute International Educator Workshop at any host site; to those who have completed the online courses: Survey of LCI Practice or Course 2; and to those who have participated in an LCI Consultancy that is the equivalent of a one-week introductory-level workshop.
“The imaginative capacities have opened up my science lessons to be more reflective, imaginative, and engaging. Students who were not interested in science became interested when art was merged with science. I delivered ideas in a layered fashion from simple to complex movements and not just math formulas. The interdisciplinary approach of teaching art and science is truly the way to reach all students.” --Marian Marley, Science Teacher, Wilkes Central High School, Wilkesboro
“The most significant learning from LCI was that I tried to take myself out of the center and elevate the student so that they left the experience empowered and excited about their own observations and eager to make more discoveries.”-- Annie Dwyer, Dance Specialist, K-12, Carolina Friends School, Durham
“After LCI, I realized that a lesson on the periodic table could begin with open ended questioning—and that I did not, in fact, have to have the answers for every question. Sometimes I have had students get so excited about questioning that they search for the answers—but some we leave alone, and I am learning that sometimes that is an appropriate thing to do.” --Lenora McNamara, 4th Grade Teacher, Arts Based Elementary School, Winston-Salem
