AERA Arts and Learning SIG     2007 Annual Meeting
April 9 – 13, 2007            Chicago, Ill

Bobbi McKean, SIG Chair


    Greetings!  I trust many of you are making plans to join us in April! Registration is underway.  Sally Gradle (Arts and Learning Program Chair) has put together an exciting program. A full list of the SIG sessions is included here. As you can see, TUESDAY is a full day! In the afternoon, (2:15pm - 3:45pm), we have a wonderful off-site visit at Columbia College Chicago. This presentation shares the work of an arts integrated early childhood teacher education program and the resources that it draws upon to support its students. Kieran Egan is our invited speaker at our business meeting, 6:15-8:15pm. Following the business meeting is a special Arts and Learning Social from 8:30–10:00pm. Co-hosted with Arts Based Educational Research SIG and Columbia College, this event is NOT listed in the AERA program. The social will be held at the Contemporary Museum of Photography, on Columbia College's campus. What follows is based on the schedule posted on Wednesday, February 21, 2007.

   N.B. There will be no printed versions of the AERA program this year unless you specifically request one.

See you in Chicago!
