This is another of the recent articles that I’ve seen that takes some of the ideas we’ve been talking about and places them into a business setting.
This story in the NY Times caught my eye. It has many of the same hallmarks as the LEAP project and explains how it works in a business environment.
This is a recent article that appeared in the New York Times.
Crossman Gallery interns Megan Barry, Leticia Castillo, Samantha Landre and Kimberly Storage are in Minneapolis along with Michael Flanagan to attend the annual meeting of the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries. The conference site is on the University of Minnesota campus at the Frank Gehry designed Weisman Art Museum. (http://www.weisman.umn.edu/)

Greetings to all World of the Arts instructors. I wanted to set up this blog as a way of updating one another on course information.
I met with the McGraw-Hill representative this week and she and I discussed a custom book for WOTA. It is possible to pull together a book from any of the McGraw-Hill offerings, get a proof copy sent in for review and accept or revise the book. A custom book runs about the same as our current texts. One issue would be the shelf life of current texts and the the willingness of the university bookstore to order new materials. I’m going to continue to investigate the possibilities.
The links below will take you to some of the materials developed through the LEAP initiative including a set of Essential Learning Outcomes and a revised course rubric. Thanks to Julia Ince for her efforts on this material.
