The Arts Integration Institute is a collaborative effort to infuse arts instruction across the curriculum. Dedicated to deepening student learning and appreciation for the arts while raising student achievement, the Institute provides opportunities for teachers in the arts and in other disciplines to learn or update their skills by integrating the arts into the curriculum.
The Institute's interdisciplinary courses combine teaching methodology and arts experiences.
Courses may be taken as part of continuing education or graduate degree programs. The courses and workshops use a variety of formats and are designed to be flexible enough to support the needs of individual teachers working with varied age groups.
The Arts Integration Institute offers the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Arts Integration (PBC-AI) for practicing classroom teachers, fine arts specialists, administrators, and teaching artists. The Institute works closely with school districts and the Maryland State Department of Education to provide timely, progressive educational courses and workshops in response to the needs of practicing educators in Maryland PK-12 schools.
