Course II: Teaching for Imaginative Learning: Curriculum and Pedagogy

Now that you have some idea of imaginative learning through aesthetic education, its practice, and possible outcomes, you are ready to learn more about how Lincoln Center Institute approaches curriculum and pedagogy. In this course, you will explore how the Institute plans its instructional units, and how to do what we call "Guiding the Noticing," a major component of our instructional approach. You will utilize what you have learned in the introductory course, as well as view the work of Institute teaching artists and teachers in elementary, middle, and secondary education, to help you understand this unique approach that opens possibilities for learning.

Course II: Teaching for Imaginative Learning: Curriculum and Pedagogy
