Arts Partners for Learning sponsors professional development for all who are involved with improving arts learning opportunities for students in Western New York. Through professional development forums, APL provides training and guidance to the arts and cultural community, including APL program providers and teaching artists, to learn best practices in arts and arts-integrated education including how to help teachers and schools address the new common core learning standards. Professional development forums for teachers and other educators introduce them to quality APL programs through hands-on workshops and other guidance on expanding learning opportunities throughout the curriculum. Future professional development forums are being planned to address program evaluation, assessment tools, and curriculum development.
