Continuing Education Opportunity

 Hello all!


I am reaching out because I am working with Friends University to offer another continuing ed credit opportunity for our KAEA members this spring.  This will again be offered at our discount rate of $85 for the one-hour credit.  We will be reading the book Studio Thinking and connecting with the KAEA book club to have a couple zoom meetings for class with the rest of the class work done via email as reflection questions and a paper analyzing strategies and how you can incorporate them into your classroom.  See the course guide link below and specific class description attached if interested. 



Our course number is 20720 and the first zoom meeting is March 4th! I hope to see you in class again this semester!
