Located at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts conducts innovative research in comprehensive arts education and school reform. SCEA develops and implements professional development programs enabling educators from kindergarten through college level to establish the rigorous study of the arts as an integral component of basic education for all students. As one of six regional institutes established in 1988 by the Getty Center for Education in the Arts, SCEA pioneered research in discipline-based dance, music, theatre, and visual art education. The Tennessee Arts Commission awarded SCEA its 2003 Governor's Arts Leadership Award for nurturing creative inquiry into teaching and learning.
SCEA provided instructional design for two previous Annenberg Media professional development projects about the arts: The Arts in Every Classroom, a teaching practices library and workshop for elementary school teachers, and Connecting With the Arts, a teaching practices library and workshop for middle school teachers about integrating the arts with other subjects.
