Students in each Art Education program at Massachusetts College of Art and Design take introductory seminars in teaching new and traditional media and human development. They also learn about different instructional methods and the challenges their students face in their daily lives. In addition, students are required to complete four interdisciplinary portfolio courses, which demonstrate their competency in art making.
Students will develop expertise in studio practices, learning and teaching
Students will develop the dispositions (skills, inclination, alertness) as artist-educators, including learning: How areas of expertise and roles interact dynamically.
- How to keep students’ development and well-being at the core of their educational practice.
- To see their identity and position as artist-educators as professionals and leaders.
- How to nurture their own development through reflective practice over time.
- How models and theories interact with and support practice.
- How to respond sensitively to every individual’s universal, group and unique characteristics.
- How meaning and meaning-making are embodied and embedded in contexts (language, behavior, and culture).
- How to seek, nurture, and use intuitive, observed, experienced, and logical connections and associations to develop understanding.
- How to select and use art-making, teaching, and scholarly research methods to suit purpose, context, and audience.
- - How quality thinking requires not only skills, but also attitudes that drive engagement and focus attention on opportunities in contexts.
