Research in the Art Room: Stories from Teachers

Join classroom art educators and members of the NAEA Professional Learning Through Research Working Group, as they share resources for bringing research into everyday educational settings. Explore the results of a recent NAEA survey on research to get the “big picture" of the importance of research in the classroom and beyond.

Gain answers to these questions and more:

  • What are the benefits of conducting research in my classroom?
  • How do I find time and resources to conduct my own research or collaborate in joint research studies?
  • How can I research the effectiveness of my curriculum or my own teaching practices?

Presenters: Amy Pfeiler-Wunder, Betsy Murphy, Kristi Oliver, Samantha Melvin, and Kathy A. Miraglia

Upon completion of an NAEA webinar, participants will receive a Certificate of Participation with (1) clock hour of professional development per session, as designated by NAEA. Clock hours provided upon completion of any NAEA professional learning institute are granted for participation in an organized professional learning experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction and can be used toward continuing education credit in most states. It is the responsibility of the participant to verify acceptance by professional governing authorities in their area.
