Instructional Strategies for Art Teachers

Build a toolkit of instructional approaches for both in-person and online art classrooms that will engage all art students.

Because one size does not fit all in the art classroom, differentiated teaching strategies are vital to reaching all learners. This interactive, practical course is designed to help art teachers build a professional repertoire of instructional approaches for both in-person and online classrooms. This course is aligned with 21st-century learning goals, such as creative thinking, problem solving, ideation, and collaboration. Emphasis will be placed on contemporary art and education theories, such as culturally responsive classrooms and student-centered learning.
