In three weeks, more than 10,000 North American educators will converge on the Hilton New York for WNET’s seventh annual Celebration of Teaching & Learning. The Celebration is a major professional development conference that includes over 40 featured speakers and 100 interactive workshops, as well as two exhibition halls full of education resources. This year, as in 2011, I’ll have the privilege of presenting there, on a panel with Madeleine Holzer, director of educational development at Lincoln Center Institute, and 2010 National Teacher of the Year Sarah Wessling.

Lincoln Center Institute (LCI) is featured in a new article for MetroFocus, WNET’s multi-platform magazine. The piece, entitled “Surprising Schoolyard Pals,” focuses on the growing number of partnerships between area arts organizations and local schools. This isn’t an entirely recent phenomenon, however: we’ve been at it for 36 years.

On March 18 and 19, WNET will sponsor the 2011 Celebration of Teaching and Learning. From Mehmet Oz to Oliver Sacks to Leymah Gbowee, each year the Celebration brings together extraordinary thinkers of our era, and whether their expertise lies in technology or health sciences, all come to discuss the state of education and the possibilities for its future.
Common Core standards in Math and ELA will be addressed, as will STEM, autism, and other burning issues—not forgetting the arts and creativity, which is where Lincoln Center Institute comes in.
We are proud to announce that Scott Noppe-Brandon, LCI’s Executive Director and author of Imagination First, and Ashley Merryman, award-winning journalist who has covered the “Creativity Crisis” beat in both book and newspaper, will present a panel on the subject of imagination, creativity, and innovation in schools: the “ICI Continuum.” Book signings will take place at the event and are hosted by Barnes & Noble.
The Celebration takes place at the New York Hilton. For exact location, times, and detailed information about the program and the speakers, go to http://thirteencelebration.org/
