Title: Arts Education: A Global Affair
Editor: Bernard W. Andrews, University of Ottawa, Canada
Description of the Project:
Arts education programs and research have increased significantly across the globe since the beginning of the century. Alternate forms of arts instruction, such as small-group learning, individualized instruction and the learning circle, and new forms of arts-based research, such as ethnodrama, a/r/t/ography and poetic inquiry, have arisen and made significant contributions to the arts education community. Moreover, teaching and research in arts education have changed significantly as a consequence of the world-wide pandemic, Covid-19. Emerging variants have exacerbated the situation and show no signs of subsiding. In response to these challenges, arts educators and researchers have developed new modes of instructional delivery and data collection. These include asynchronous, synchronous, hybrid and bi-modal online learning, and online questionnaires, surveys, focus groups, and video interviews. This peer-reviewed book, entitled Arts Education: A Global Affair, published by Brill of Leiden, The Netherlands will highlight the adaptations that arts educators and researchers have undertaken to successfully adjust to the new reality in education. This book will provide a valuable resource for students, teachers, professors and researchers in the arts disciplines, media studies, education, and cultural studies.
