Webinar Outline and Links – Getting Started with Arts Integration

Later today, I will be presenting for the #rscon11 Reform Symposium conference.  My presentation is on “Getting Started with Arts Integration” and I thought it would be helpful to post the outline and links that I will be referring to during the presentation. This way, participants can access the information in depth after we discuss it at the webinar. So here it is:

Arts Integration Is…
