What's New at Crystal Bridges Online Learning?

Are you looking for a way to tap into the power of immersive reality to help your students curate an art exhibit online? Would you like to find a way to help your students improve their ability to look closely at works of art? Are you interested in implementing a blended learning model in your high school art classes?

In celebration of Digital Learning Day, join us on Monday, February 27, at 1 p.m. (EST) (Add to Your Calendar) for the interactive webinar “Innovation in Arts Education,” where we’ll explore these questions and more!

The webinar will feature the two new online courses developed by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Online Scholar Program. During this hour-long webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of art educators who have been teaching with the Crystal Bridges online courses. You’ll also hear from Anne Kraybill, director of education and research in learning for Crystal Bridges, and Kirsten Peterson, director of EDC’s EdTech Leaders Online, who helped develop the courses.

Webinar participants will be invited to ask the panelists questions and learn about the application process to become a member of the Summer 2017 cohorts of the Online Scholar Program, a competitive, all-expense-paid program for educators to learn how to teach Crystal Bridges’ online courses.
