Developing and Supporting Teaching Artists You Asked: Limited funds and time make professional learning a challenge in spite of an organization’s best efforts to connect their teaching artists to learning opportunities. Arts organizations asked for ways to better support their teaching artists in attending Ingenuity professional learning. While free and low-cost professional learning exist, teaching artists still experience barriers to accessing high-quality professional learning. We Answered: Ingenuity is pleased to offer a limited number of special professional learning stipends to teaching artists. These stipends are meant to promote access to high-quality professional learning programs and increase teaching artist knowledge, skill, and impact in classrooms and communities. Stipends of $50/hour of training are available for most of Ingenuity’s professional learning events, including Institutes and mini-courses. To be considered for a stipend, teaching artists must be affiliated with an arts organization. The organization must act as the lead applicant and commit to a 1:1 stipend match (Ingenuity will provide one stipend for one teaching artist; the organization must provide a matching stipend for another teaching artist).

Teaching artists and organizations wishing to take advantage of this opportunity can access the online application criteria and materials at links listed throughout this catalog.

Customized Professional Learning Plans for Arts Partners You Asked: Arts partners and teaching artists want access to high-quality professional learning, but sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the Institutes Ingenuity offers. They want a way to more directly and efficiently find the learning opportunities that best align with their needs. We Answered: Ingenuity has developed an interactive online tool to help arts partners and teaching artists determine their highest-priority learning needs and connect them to immediate resources for building knowledge. This customizable resource will help cut through the interference and get to the heart of a learner’s needs.

To help us better serve you and be most prepared for who is in the room, Ingenuity will be collecting a nominal $5 registration fee for all of its professional learning mini-courses and Institutes.
