POSTPONED A Roundtable Conversation: Assessing Online Learning in the Arts

Date: Monday, June 8, 2020
Time: 2:30pm - 4:00pm EDT
Location: Zoom Meeting (Advanced registration is required.)


The NYC Arts in Education Roundtable has chosen to postpone “A Roundtable Conversation: Assessing Online Learning in the Arts” scheduled for Monday, June 8 at 2:30pm until further notice. At this intersection of deep sadness and reflection, we wish to take this moment to consider our next steps as an organization and as individuals.

In the interim, given the interest in this event, we wish to offer the following resources curated in response to our registration form questionnaire:
  • Resource List: Thank you to everyone who shared resources. We’ve used those to start a Google Spreadsheet that tracks tools, websites, platforms, etc. We ask that our community continue to populate this document to support digital peer-learning. Click here to access that spreadsheet.
  • Info about Access to Technology: A trending challenge emerged that individuals/organizations are noticing issues with student access to technology. Thank you to Programming Committee Co-Chair, Katharine Strobel, for curating this list of steps you can share with students, families, and teachers to help them get access to the devices/internet needed to support remote learning.

A special thank you to our planning team for pivoting in this moment: Katharine Strobel, Jacqueline Raymond, Stephen Ferrell, and Lesley Hunter. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to connecting with you about this topic in the near future.

In the past two and a half months, remote learning has expanded our community’s reach and given us a platform to bring arts learning directly into the home. Given that online learning will be a reality for the foreseeable future, and likely beyond this pandemic, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable is hosting a peer-driven conversation to identify and strategize around the challenges and successes related to assessing remote learning in the arts.

We invite our community of arts administrators, teaching artists, and in-school educators to be a part of the conversation to collectively crowdsource strategies and next steps for assessing arts learning during individual lessons and long-term projects. This conversation will be facilitated by members of our Programming Committee.

Please Note: This call will be recorded and shared on the Roundtable’s website and social media channels.
