Are you a teaching artist who is interested in deepening your practice and connecting with others in the arts community? The Northeast Region training series of professional development workshops taught by VSA Vermont teaching artist Alexandra Turner is designed to provide introductory information on inclusive teaching methods focusing on accessible practices, social and emotional learning, arts integration, and universal design for learning (UDL). All workshops will include hands-on arts exploration as well as time to connect with other teaching artists, community arts leaders, and the instructor. Each 2-hour workshop will be preceded by a half hour of light refreshments and networking. The workshops can be taken independently or as the full series of four trainings.
This series is a partnership between VSA Vermont, Catamount Arts, River Arts, WonderArts, and the Vermont Arts Council. Thanks to Vermont Arts Council support, there is no fee to participate in the workshops. Space is limited, and registration is required.
To register, click on “Buy Tickets” for each workshop. All are free.

In this workshop, teaching artists will learn about inclusive teaching methods and social emotional learning. We will dive into the conflict cycle, the effects of stress and trauma on learning, and techniques teaching artists can use to engage reluctant learners. Teaching artists will come away with a working knowledge of the role of social emotional learning in educational settings, and what they can do to support each student they work with. Join us for refreshments and networking at 5:30. Training begins at 6:00pm.
