The Peabody Institute is proud to host the 11th national conference of the Consortium for the Liberal Education of Artists, tentatively entitled:
Challenging Artists in Challenging Times: What’s Necessary and Sufficient?Exchange ideas with educators from arts schools across the country convening under the auspices of the Consortium for the Liberal Education of Artists (CLEA). We will meet on the campus of the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
April 5th – 7th, 2018
arrive Wednesday, April 4
depart Saturday afternoon–April 7
Conversation will address our ongoing work augmenting the learning experience of the young artists we teach. Prior to our meeting, participants plan with colleagues from other institutions to design our panel presentations; most participants share an aspect of their work, ideas, and experience as panelists in sessions held throughout Thursday and Friday. Session details will gel as determined by participant planning. Themes currently under discussion include: innovation in first year courses; project-based learning; online teaching modules; assessment and accreditation; writing instruction and writing support; advocacy and institutional/student buy-in for the liberal arts. ESL and the challenge of integrating international populations always warrant a thread of consideration in our conferences.
