The following courses will begin on July 5, 2011.
Survey of LCI Practice: Studying Works of Art, Creating Curriculum, Exploring Imaginative Learning
The newly-created survey course is composed of rich excerpts from two of the four courses in the series. The examples have been chosen carefully to offer as complete an introduction to imaginative teaching and learning as possible. All instruction is applicable across the curriculum and invaluable for all teachers. Participants address the importance of studying works of art, explore the Capacities for Imaginative Learning, and join the experiential workshop around Ghostcatching, a digital work of art. They learn how to plan instructional units, and view the work of Lincoln Center Institute teaching artists and teachers in elementary, middle, and secondary education. Video case studies provide real-life explorations of issues in classroom settings. Upon completion, participants understand the function of the Capacities for Imaginative Learning, explore multimedia and multidisciplinary resources, plan instructional units using LCI's approach, and much more.
Those who wish to explore the above-mentioned themes, and more, in greater detail and more in-depth study, are invited to pursue Courses 1, 2, 3 or 4 individually or as a complete series.
These online courses are made possible by generous grants to Lincoln Center Institute from the Verizon Foundation and from the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust.
