We invite proposals from Arts & Science units for ATLAS, the funding mechanism for supporting a wide range of unit-level teaching and learning initiatives within the Faculty. During her time at Conservatory Lab, she has developed highly successful expeditionary learning curriculum that integrates science, literacy, and the arts. Waterloo Arts instructors are committed to sharing new ideas, understanding and perspectives with and among their students.
She has wide-reaching interests in American preK-12 education, but is particularly passionate about cultivating quality, reflective, common sense, synergistic school systems that promote powerful teaching and learning.

We’re a practice-led research centre where knowledge is conceived as co-constructed through action. Participants will explore how to create powerful learning experiences that use the arts to connect students with their own communities and other cultures. The centre provides an exciting opportunity for scholars and students across the arts and with a commitment to learning to advance research in this field.
In an increasingly fragmented school system, there is an appetite for collaboration between teachers and arts organisations to improve their practice and the impact for young people. This course is taught by a team who have recognised expertise in teaching, and research into creative practice and creative pedagogies, literacies and media production.
Mounting evidence indicates the value of the arts in supporting positive educational outcomes. The arts offer varieties of such learning opportunities that are appropriate for both kinds of learners, and can exercise and develop the ability to use both kinds of thinking.
