Session III: Overview for Arts Education Dashboard

Friday, February 23rd 11:30am – 12:30PM

Are you familiar with the Dodge Foundation’s Arts Education Dashboard? Need a refresher? This free webinar is for you:

The Dashboard is a tool to map the creativity nonprofits bring to NJ schools and make the case for arts education in our state and beyond. But it takes all of you to map this work accurately. During this webinar, we will walk you through the dashboard basics, use program examples to take the dashboard “out for a spin,” and answer any of your questions on how to use the tool for your organization and participate in the NAER data collection project. Pre-registration is required here.

Monday, February 26th  12:00- 1:00pm

How can you mine all the great data you inputted into the Arts Education Dashboard?

During this webinar, we will walk you through how best to use the reporting features of the Data Dashboard for your internal assessment purposes. Additionally, as a NAER member, you can make sure that you have represented the full scope of your work as part of the Newark wide reporting. There will be time to ask your questions about how to interpret and analyze the data and even refine your data collection practices. Pre-registration is required here.
