C-PAD Academy

May 11-15, 2020

 

Introducing the Academy:

You are invited to participate in an online academy focused on teaching and learning in the arts hosted by the Center for Pedagogy in Arts & Design (C-PAD). The academy will focus on practical and concrete strategies for teaching the arts in both online and residential courses. Specific attention will be paid to challenges that arose during our recent shift to remote teaching. Participation in this academy will provide you with the pedagogical and technical skills needed should remote teaching continue beyond this semester.

You may enroll in the complete academy for certification (see below for more details) or in individual workshops. Each session draws upon research-supported practices that will aid participants in developing new approaches and techniques. The academy consists of 1.5-hour workshops that are a mixture of presentations, group activities and discussion, supervised skill-building, course syllabus and curriculum development, and personal reflection on teaching and student learning.

The C-PAD Academy is free for all Penn State interested faculty, staff, and graduate students.

 

Certification (Optional):

 

The C-PAD Academy Certification will result in increased knowledge of contemporary teaching and learning practices and tools. It is designed for faculty and graduate students who wish to earn a certificate in innovative teaching as professional development.
