Views from the Outside: Are There Too Many Arts Management Students for the Job Market?
Keith D. Lee, a nonprofit and arts management consultant, will moderate a 90-minute panel discussion to address external views associated with arts administration education as these relate to career development and the job market. Panelists will present contrasting views of arts and nonprofit administration education as these relate to the needs of the arts professionals in the field. For approximately fifty minutes, panelists will discuss their own experiences in arts and/or nonprofit management. Following this dialogue, the panel and session attendees will exchange questions and explore new strategies with insight for campus faculty and arts administrators and also for practitioners about career enhancement and development options.

"...By Any Other Name..."
As a field, we use combinations of terms to describe  programs to potential students and to distinguish them from similar offerings. There is usually a modifier: arts, cultural or some discipline-specific term. Then there’s a noun that points to career  expectations: management… administration… entrepreneurship… enterprise… leadership… A recent survey explored the extent to which differences in what we call our programs reflect distinctions in the curricula we offer our students. The panel will help us think about the meaning of these words and, by extension, what exactly we are preparing our students to do. Then the survey results will inform a general discussion in which all are welcome to participate.

Accessibility in the Arts for Arts Administrators
This session will explore accessibility services at cultural art centers/organizations for people with diverse disabilities. The session will present legal, policy, and programmatic frameworks that arts administrators can use to develop accessible services. It is critical for arts administrators to be involved in the implementation of these access services to ensure accessibility for all their stakeholders and fulfill their DEI standards. Based on different case studies and practices from institutions such as the Kennedy Center, this presentation will describe outcomes that are contributing to best practices in this field.

Internship Programming and its Effect on Diversity in Arts Management
Wolf Trap hosts approximately 45 interns annually and has played a key role in shaping the professional success of students for many years. As an organization that values their commitment to diversity and the power of the arts to change society, Wolf Trap feels it is essential to provide its interns with intentional diversity and inclusion programming that will in turn bring awareness to the importance of diversity within the arts management field. Join Wolf Trap for a session to hear firsthand from Wolf Trap intern alumni about how their internships and experiences during and after college played a valuable role in helping them successfully transition into the workforce as diverse young professionals.

ENCATC/AAAE Internationational Panel
Internationalism in higher education is almost taken for granted across the sector today though Arts Administration was one of those disciplines that attracted international attention since the early stages of its development.  The field expanded over the years at institutional and curriculum level worldwide and is now a global market in its own right – in terms of demand and of provision, with degrees offered in many countries worldwide. This AAAE-ENCATC session brings together a panel of US and international fellow academics to discuss to what extent and in what ways Arts Administration as a field of study has been affected by internationalism and (more recently) globalisation.  The curriculum, learning and teaching, interdisciplinarity, employability are just some ‘usual suspect’ themes that are likely to come up in the PechaKucha style presentations and conversation with the audience so we can all share ideas and learn from each other’s experience/s.  Do join us to debate internationalism and globalisation in Arts Administration education and their impact on the ‘direction of travel‘ of the field.’

Teaching Arts Administration with The Case Method
Long ago are the days of lecturing or teaching to the text, giving a test, and leaving for a break. Today, engaged students want to apply their readings and lectures in a pragmatic manner and they want to connect the theory with practice. The case method of teaching is not new but is used less in some universities or programs. This panel will engage in a conversation about their use of the case method using published case studies, their approach to teaching with case studies, and conclude with the process of writing new case studies.
