New England Summit on Arts Education

The Maine Arts Assessment Initiative (MAAI), now in its third phase, will provide an outstanding collaborative opportunity for educators to dig deep into teaching, learning, and assessment in arts education including student-centered classrooms and proficiency. Please join educators from Maine and beyond for this fabulous three-day professional development opportunity.

The overall focus of the MAAI has been to create an environment in Maine where quality assessment in arts education is an integral part of the work all arts educators do to improve teaching and learning, and student achievement in the arts.

Maine has a commitment to offer a quality professional development opportunity that is customized to meet your educational needs and goals. Consequently, participants will choose a strand to be working in during the Summit. To learn more about the summit including the details of the strands, and to register please click here.

Dates and Location: July 29, 30, 31 at USM, Portland campus. For those interested in being a teacher leader during phase 4, attending all three days plus August 1 is required!
