- CPR - First Aid Training
presented by Krisanne Cole
The American Hospital Association (AHA) is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities. Close to 5,000 hospitals, health care systems, networks, other providers of care and 40,000 individual members come together to form the AHA.
Through our representation and advocacy activities, AHA ensures that members' perspectives and needs are heard and addressed in national health policy development, legislative and regulatory debates, and judicial matters. Our advocacy efforts include the legislative and executive branches and include the legislative and regulatory arenas.
Founded in 1898, the AHA provides education for health care leaders and is a source of information on health care issues and trends.
Heartsaver® First Aid is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. Students learn skills such as how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies.
About 92 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital, but statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim's chance of survival.
Through medical advancements in the treatment of cardiovascular disease and sound training on lifesaving skills, the American Heart Association's Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Programs increase survival rates and quality of life.

- Latino/a Theatre in Texas
presented by Roxanne Schroeder-ArceThe 2010 census documented over fifty million Latino/as living in the United States; however, these numbers are disproportionately underrepresented in the theatre produced nationwide. From professional companies to plays performed by youth in school theatre programs, Latino stories and characters are absent or, at best, deficient. There is a lack of awareness about what plays are available and a need to talk about the challenges producing Latino theatre presents. In this interactive workshop, the instructor will provide resources for those interested in offering Latino plays in their communities. Participants will examine plays that are available and explore who is producing these plays. Participants will engage in a discussion about the challenges in representation, resources, and attracting students of color to school theatre programs.
- An Expressive Collaboration: Conducting and Movement
presented by Gladys Keeton and Bradley BallardYou can lead. But can you inspire? Conducting is a movement language. Achieve more expression in conducting and musical performance by developing your movement potential through kinesthetic dance/movement basics and the practical application of Laban's movement language exercises for the whole body. Physical gestures have an impact upon the realization of the expressive potential in a given musical selection. Conditioning through targeted physical and technical exercises is vital to achieving the ability to conduct with endurance, suitable range, and control. It is very important, however to keep in mind that the purpose of this physical and technical development is to musically express a greater range of emotions. Development in the area of musical expression also requires consistent attention and can be enhanced by using imagery, connecting feelings to sounds and scores, and other creative exercises that inspire and engage. This experience will further enable conductors to bring the most meaning to their music interpretation as they mold and shape the sound of their ensembles. Conducting can be a whole-bodyexpressive act in collaboration with an ensemble of musicians, and really exciting music-making/performance can be the result.Although there are many formal rules on how to conduct correctly, others are subjective, and a wide variety of different conducting styles exist. Inspire as you lead!
- Art and Media Communications I & II
presented by Megan Alrutz
Art and Media Communications combines rigorous and relevant experiential study of modern, post-modern, and contemporary visual art and design with student learning in media literacy and technology applications. Creation and analysis of student artworks will be balanced with explorations into contemporary practices across the visual and commercial arts fields. Students will learn how to bridge traditional hand skills with current technology applications to create new media such as animations, digital images, multimedia presentations, digital videos, websites, and interactive or site-based installations and performances. Furthermore, student work will culminate in a capstone project that investigates an issue relevant to the student and uses art, design, and visual communications to address a problem within the community or effect a change. This project will afford students an opportunity to learn and practice creative research skills, develop a narrative, engage an audience, and connect an online community to their project.

- The Language of Dance
presented by Tina Curran
The Language of Dance Approach is built upon the Movement Alphabet, the fundamental building blocks of movement to explore how our bodies move and from this how dance can be formed. The inclusion of movement Motif symbols links the physical experience of moving with cognitive and affective development. Our mission is to offer a unique approach to exploring, creating and recording dance and movement. Our founder is Dr. Ann Hutchinson Guest, a world-renowned expert in dance notation and movement analysis who is dedicated to the exploration, creation, and documentation and research in movement and dance. During this overview, participants will refresh and deepen their understanding and meaning making with movement. They will explore strategies for teaching movement skills and a student-centered, collaborative approach to dance making. This session previews the Language of Dance Fundamentals course, which is the foundation of the Language of Dance Approach for learners of all ages and abilities, aimed to promote dance literacy through experiential learning, practical application, collaborative creation, and reflective practice.
