This Week: EdM Updates and Professional Opportunities & Intensives.



EdM Portfolio Celebration

Each May, Ed.M. degree candidates in their final semester present and defend their artistry-teaching portfolios at the annual portfolio review and celebration. Each candidate decorates a table that displays his or her professional materials as well as an artistry-teaching website that was finalized in the Professional Issues course.

“Congratulations to the 2016 Rutgers Graduate Dance Education cohort on an inspiring Portfolio Celebration!!! A brilliant, creative and ambitious community of artist-educator-scholars!” – Barbara Bashaw, Program DirectorIMG_9104IMG_0307
