Professional Development Credit
The rules and procedures for documenting professional development credit in NYS have changed as of July 1, 2016. NYSATA is a NYS approved Continuing Teaching and Learning Education (CTLE) Credit Sponsor/Provider. NYSATA has established a committee to work out the details for compliance with the stipulations for being a sponsor of CTLE professional development.
The policies and process for receiving CTLE credit will be determined before the NYSATA Preconference and Conference in November. Attendees will be notified of the new process via email before they arrive.
All teachers, including permanently certified teachers must register on the NYSED TEACH website to maintain their certification status. For more information go to http://www.highered.nysed.gov/tcert/news/newsitem05122015.html
(Please check with your district for any prior approval necessary.)
NYSATA 2016 Preconference
and Innovation in
NYSATA proudly presents two unique opportunities to understand and explore new shifts in the Visual and Media Arts. Participants will attend two workshops during the day. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. The Chromatics: No Mix Color Workshop session will focus on innovative perspectives on the traditional content of color theory. The Next Generation Standards, Assessment, and the Democratization of Technology workshop session will feature interactive discussions regarding the new, soon to be adopted, NYS Standards in Visual and Media Arts, as well as, the strengths technology brings to the classroom experience. Both workshops will be held during Session I (9:00-11:30AM) and then repeated during Session II in the afternoon (12:15- 2:45PM) when participants will switch groups. Each workshop session is limited to 30 participants. At the conclusion of the workshop sessions, there will be a general session: Transformational Shifts in Art Education. This session will be held (3PM-4:30PM).
Chromatics: No Mix Color
Implement “No Mix Color” experimentation in your classroom and experience the pleasure of hearing a student say, “I need a pale dull yellow,” seeing other students search, then graciously offer colors that fit the description, and then
In this workshop, participants will experience lots of fun, fast, inexpensive, and smart solutions to developing color vocabulary and color sensibilities. Even the experienced art teacher will find that after this workshop their understanding of the pleasure and possibilities of color in their own work will be vividly enhanced.
