The Integrated Learning Specialist Program provides K-12 teachers and teaching artists
research-based frameworks and practice-proven strategies for supporting culturally-responsive
arts-integrated teaching across the curriculum. Teachers participate in teacher action research
and are provided with tools and knowledge to apply ongoing formative and summative performance based assessment.
In the fall of 2016, MCOE partnered with Alameda County Office of Education and Dominican University to provide Course A of the ILSP through Dominican's Program of Advanced and Continuing Education. Under this arrangement, educators taking the course may obtain 3 CEUs through Dominican University. Moving forward, faculty in the School of Education and Department of Fine Art, Art History and Design propose to make the ILSP coursework available to Dominican's undergraduate and graduate student community for credit toward their degrees, while still preserving the ILSP's accessibility to Marin educators seeking to build their skills and knowledge of integrated learning approaches.
The program offers three core courses and hands-on electives in the arts disciplines:
Course A: Strategies and Resources for Arts Integration
Course B: Ongoing Assessment, Strategies and Applications
