Inland Empire Campus Holds Education Leader Workshop
May 12, 2017
Recently, The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University, hosted an Education Leader Workshop for teachers and counselors. The day-long event was designed to enhance the creative skills of education leaders in the Inland Empire.
Educators—from elementary to college level—attended the free workshop, which featured hands-on classes run by The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire faculty and staff. The event included a continental breakfast, lunch from student-run Seasons Restaurant, and a welcome from campus president Matthew Madrid, dean of academics Adam Thompson, and director of finances, Trevor Garrett. Participants were given information on the variety of courses taught at the school, as well as degree options and financial aid opportunities including scholarships.
An interactive design workshop discussed applying design to classrooms in conjunction with student engagement. There was also a pasta immersion course.
Additionally, The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire celebrated its relationship with Adopt a Classroom by presenting teachers from its five adopted classrooms with “giant checks.” The Adopt a Classroom teachers were also given the opportunity to speak about how the program had impacted their students—and their students’ hopes for the future.
