In Performative Approaches in Arts Education, researchers, artists and practitioners from philosophy and the arts elaborate on what performative approaches can contribute to 21st century arts education. Introducing new perspectives on learning, the contributors provide a central international perspective, developing a paradigm in which the artist, teacher and researcher’s form of teaching is enmeshed with content, and human agency is entangled with non-human matter. The book explores issues connected to both teaching and learning in the arts, engaging in debates about the value of meaning making in the artistic process, the way social ethos can guide performative approaches and the changes in education that performative approaches can bring. Performative Approaches in Arts Education will be of great interest to academics, researchers and post-graduate students in the fields of arts education, philosophy of education and education research methods. It will also appeal to teachers and teacher educators, artists and teaching artists.

Annotation This book asks serious aesthetic and cultural questions about art and teaching. In this context the authors explore the power of art to shape both our emotions and our intellect. With these ideas in mind the authors explore a course the team taught on « High and Low Art: Good and Bad Taste. As the course began the « Sensation controversy at the Brooklyn Museum broke out. The authors trace both how the controversy shaped their course and its implications for the larger concerns with art, culture, and education in the twenty-first century.

Is teaching an art, rather than a science? Instead of measuring education and reducing everything to data, what if we looked at it through the lens of the arts? Sue Cowley demonstrates how teachers can become artists, sculptors, actors, dancers, musicians, playwrights, poets, designers and directors, no matter which subject or age group they happen to be teaching. The artful educator paints the air with ideas and weaves magic with words. They aren't afraid of a little risk, or of planning and delivering lessons a little differently. Learn how to be more creative, experimental, playful and imaginative in the methods you use to manage your classroom, and in the myriad ways in which you help your students to learn. Discover what an 'artful attitude' to education looks like, with plenty of practical, real-life ideas for artful teaching and learning. Sue has collected inspiring examples of how colleagues in a range of settings, from early years to secondary and further education, are already using artful approaches in their classrooms. Find out how to engage with your artful side, reinvigorate your approach to teaching and inspire yourself and your children with the pure joy of learning. Getting artful can involve borrowing techniques from the arts to use in teaching, getting learners hands-on with creating artworks themselves and also engaging learners with great existing works of art, cultivating the cultural capital that comes from this in the process. A collection of suggestions designed to inspire you to take creative risks with your learners, this is a book for explorers and rebels. An ideal resource for trainees, NQTs and experienced teachers alike, The Artful Educator is for anyone looking for inventive, innovative approaches to teaching.

Highlighting an arts-based inquiry process that involves contemplation, mindful awareness, and artful writing, this book explores women’s difficult experiences in teaching. It weaves a strong autobiographical thread with artifacts from several research projects with female teachers. By linking innovative approaches to research that involve visual images and poetic writing with feminist poststructuralist theories and Buddhist-inspired practices, Walsh offers new understandings about what it means to be critical in research and teaching—and also what transformation, both social and personal, might entail.

Over the last three decades, there has been a surge in short-term, faculty-directed education abroad programs sponsored by U.S.-based postsecondary institutions. Surprisingly, there is little research that examines the pedagogies faculty program directors enact on these programs, which can leave them with few resources to support their work with students abroad beyond their own on-campus teaching experience. This arts-based education abroad research (ABEAR) project is designed to provide an opportunity for discourse and reflection on the multiple pedagogies I enacted as a faculty program director by asking: how do I, as a faculty program director, perceive student learning from arts-oriented, experiential, and place-based pedagogies on two education abroad programs designed to introduce rising freshmen to undergraduate education? I will respond to this research question through an examination of the program pedagogies I created and enacted on two such programs, contextualized within Elliot Eisner's curriculum theory (2002) and John Dewey's experiential learning theory (1938, 2005), as well as within the education abroad research literature. Through the methodological frameworks of performative autoethnography and a/r/tography, I examine my design and enactment of arts-oriented, experiential, intercultural education abroad pedagogy on two Michigan State University (MSU) First-Year Seminar Abroad (FSA) programs. MSU offers these programs to rising freshmen as an introduction to life in a university community. My "findings" chapter is offered as both a dramatic and performance text (a performance of the dramatic text for a live audience), both of which extend the examination of a/r/tifacts, the evidence of pedagogy I collected for this study, to a larger conversation about the pedagogical possibilities of education abroad programming. I approach this dissertation project as an a/r/tographer, which is to say that my combined identities of artist, researcher, and teacher inform and resonate throughout the project. This dissertation makes two important contributions to the education abroad research community: first, it is designed to inspire dialogue about the pedagogical possibilities of arts-oriented intercultural education abroad; and second, this study introduces a new methodological term, Arts-Based Education Abroad Research (ABEAR), to signal the application of Arts-Based Education Research (ABER) methodologies to the unique learning context of education abroad.

Digital images, Internet resources, presentation and social software, interactive animation, and other new technologies offer a host of new possibilities for art history instruction. Teaching Art History with New Technologies: Reflections and Case Studies assists faculty in negotiating the digital teaching terrain. The text documents the history of computer-mediated art history instruction in the last decade and provides an analysis of the increasing number of tools now at the disposal of art historians. It presents a series of reflections and case-studies by early adopters who have not just replaced older materials with new, but who have advanced the discipline's pedagogy in doing so. The essays illustrate how new technologies are changing the way art history is taught, summarize lessons learned, and identify challenges that remain. Given the transitional state of the field, with faculty ranging from the computer-phobic to the computer-savvy, these case studies represent a broad spectrum, from those that focus on the thoughtful integration of new technologies into traditional teaching to others that look beyond the familiar art history lecture or seminar format. They provide both practical suggestions and theoretical models for historians of art and visual culture interested in what computer-mediated applications have been successful in art history teaching and where such new approaches may be leading us.

In his most recent work and with his usual perceptiveness, Seymour Sarason probes the topic of teaching as a performing art. Refreshingly, Dr. Sarason focuses on the often-overlooked role of teachers in galvanizing an audience—their students. Sarason argues that teachers will better engage learners if they are prepared in the artistry of doing so. Sarason sees teachers as actors and thus uses the traditions of stage performance to inspire ways to foster connections between teachers and students. Sarason elucidates how the rehearsal processes actors undergo and the direction they receive, for example, would be similarly beneficial for educators. Recognizing that implementing his ideas would require a profound rethinking of teacher training programs, Sarason urges why they are crucial to excellence in education. As always, Sarason’s writing is rich with insight garnered from 45 years of teaching and a lifetime devotion to educational issues. His book is essential for teachers and teacher educators and an excellent resource for anyone interested in educational topics. “Once again, Sarason, like other great teachers and artists, has us pause at the moral center of what we thought we knew long enough to recognize truths we might otherwise neglect. Just as he guided our understanding of school cultures and school reform, this book reshapes what we previously thought of as ‘the art of teaching’.” —Jeannie Oakes, Professor of Education at University of California, Los Angeles “Seymour Sarason thinks he has something new to say. Indeed, he has. Furthermore, he writes about a domain anyone who has taught in educational institutions identifies with immediately but is almost barren of attention. There are insight, great writing, and passion here, but don’t look for a repetition of anything Sarason has written before. To the thousands of psychologists, sociologists, and teachers of teachers already nourished by Sarason’s writing, this book will add the audience of teachers in and out of schools that he has always wanted to reach.” —John Goodlad, Co-director, Center for Educational Renewal, University of Washington, and President, Institute for Educational Inquiry
