How do in-school arts education programs affect student creativity, academics, or social outcomes? Researchers from the Kennedy Center and Johns Hopkins University shared their investigation of these topics during the August 27, 2014, NEA Task Force on the Arts and Human Development webinar. Ivonne Chand O'Neal, Director of Research and Evaluation The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, shared her study on the Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program on Washington DC-area public school students. Mariale Hardiman, Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Education and former principal of Roland Park Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland, discussed her work at the intersection of cognitive research and effective teaching strategies.
The two presentations were followed by a Q&A session with the public.
