Art & Design Department Chair Stephanie Silverman ’00 Appointed to NAEA Steering Committee, Featured National Panelist

Archmere Art & Design Department Chair Mrs. Stephanie Silverman ’00 was recently invited by the National Art Education Association President, Mario Rossero, to serve on a Steering Committee for the organization to support the national membership and identify opportunities for organizational growth and change. Mrs. Silverman is one of four invited panelists for a special session titled, Art and Design Educators: Change Agents in Redesigning Education, at the forthcoming April 2024 NAEA Convention in Minneapolis, MN.
Along with three distinguished colleagues in the field of design education, Mrs. Silverman will explain how to become a leader in education, why this is the time for art education to take a central role in interdisciplinary future-forward education, and broadly address anticipated changes and trends underway in education that will require creative dispositions fostered in authentic creative problem-solving using design thinking. She also collaborated with panelists this past summer to create a framework for the NAEA membership to support art and design educators in a central role for predicted future changes in education.
