  • Teacher as Creative Practitioner-Scholar – fall 2020

    An advanced-level online course addressing the pedagogical underpinnings that support creative and conscious teaching – reflective practice, motivation, observation, documentation, assessment, advocacy, cognition, cultural-responsiveness/anti-bias work, and more. Use action research to investigate and align your teaching practice with your values. Through a seminar platform, collaborate and connect with your creative peers. Discover ways to rekindle the curiosity and artistry at the heart of your teaching – even when you’re teaching from a distance. Coursework includes designing a semester-long inquiry project and investigating and making presentations on your specific areas of interest. Prerequisite DIDC-A or Summer Institute.  
    Please email jperena@lunadanceinstitute.org with any questions, or to inquire about tuition assistance.

  • Practitioner Exchanges – monthly

    From: $15.00

    Practitioner Exchanges create time and space for peer educators to explore issues of practice. Get inspired! Try out new ideas or perspectives! Ask for help with your challenges, and collectively generate new ideas and solution. Each Exchange centers on a different topic. This year, Practitioner Exchanges are held online via Zoom, and will investigate different questions in regards to teaching dance from a distance. Practitioner Exchanges are facilitated by Summer Institute alumni. Come to ONE, come to ALL. No prerequisite.

    Practitioner Exchanges are included in the cost of workshops as follow-up discussions. When taken in conjunction with a half-day workshop, PD hours total 4.5-7. Explore descriptions here.
