Achieving Instructional Equity in Hybrid and Virtual Learning Spaces: Inclusive Art Room Strategies for Meeting the Diverse Needs of Students With Dis/abilities
Wednesday, August 4 | 7–8pm ET
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers  

It has been a year since we shifted our professional practice from the physical art room to hybrid and virtual learning. The dust has settled, but the challenges of engaging students with and without dis/abilities still remain. Join special education art educator Christopher Hall as he shares practical strategies developed during the pandemic to engage students with dis/abilities in the hybrid and online art room—all of which can be implemented NOW! Gain innovative and practical strategies for creating the optimal learning environment for students with and without dis/abilities in inclusive as well as self-contained classrooms. You’ll also come away with creative solutions for engaging students in artmaking with minimal art supplies via in-person, hybrid, and remote learning models.

Christopher Hall is a special education art educator for Boston Public Schools and specializes in adapting arts-based curricula and modifying his classroom pedagogy to create an environment where all students can be successful. For the past 10 years, he has gained extensive experience working with students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ages 3–16, inside and outside of the classroom. Hall has presented his work on neurodiversity, dis/ability as difference, and creating an “individualized artist success plan” at the state, national, and international levels. Hall was the recipient of the 2021 Massachusetts Art Education Association’s Special Needs Educator of the Year Award. Through his informative and entertaining hands-on workshops, Hall exposes participants to a positive look at dis/ability and encourages them to see dis/ability as difference rather than deficit, and provides practical strategies that can create the optimal learning environment in the inclusive art room.
