Harvard’s Project Zero is one of the most pioneering organizations in arts learning research in the world. They have developed major contributions to the field that are now widely embraced as best practices. Some of these key bodies of work can now be learned though online courses for small groups of teachers, anywhere in the world. These approaches are highly pertinent to the ambitions of El Sistema-inspired programs and are very different than those experienced in conservatory training. Registration is now open for courses that run February through May in: Creating Cultures of Thinking , Making Learning Visible , Teaching for Understanding , Thinking and Learning in the Maker-Centered Classroom , and Visible Thinking .
