Elliot Eisner has spent the last forty years researching, thinking and writing about some of the enduring issues in arts education, curriculum studies and qualitative research. He has compiled a career-long collection of his finest work including extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings and major theoretical contributions and brought them together in a single volume. Starting with a specially written introduction, which gives an overview of Eisner’s career and contextualises his selection, the chapters cover a wide range of issues including: * children and art* the use of educational connoisseurship* aesthetic modes of knowing* absolutism and relativism in curriculum theory* education reform and the ecology of schooling* the future of education research.

Although the arts are often thought to be closer to the rim of education than to its core, they are, surprisingly, critically important means for developing complex and subtle aspects of the mind, argues Elliot Eisner in this engrossing book. In it he describes how various forms of thinking are evoked, developed, and refined through the arts. These forms of thinking, Eisner argues, are more helpful in dealing with the ambiguities and uncertainties of daily life than are the formally structured curricula that are employed today in schools.Offering a rich array of examples, Eisner describes different approaches to the teaching of the arts and the virtues each possesses when well taught. He discusses especially nettlesome issues pertaining to the evaluation of performance in the arts. Perhaps most important, Eisner provides a fresh and admittedly iconoclastic perspective on what the arts can contribute to education, namely a new vision of both its aims and its means. This new perspective, Eisner argues, is especially important today, a time at which mechanistic forms of technical rationality often dominate our thinking about the conduct and assessment of education.

The Handbook of Research and Policy in Art Education marks a milestone in the field of art education. Sponsored by the National Art Education Association and assembled by an internationally known group of art educators, this 36-chapter handbook provides an overview of the remarkable progress that has characterized this field in recent decades. Organized into six sections, it profiles and integrates the following elements of this rapidly emerging field: history, policy, learning, curriculum and instruction, assessment, and competing perspectives. Because the scholarly foundations of art education are relatively new and loosely coupled, this handbook provides researchers, students, and policymakers (both inside and outside the field) an invaluable snapshot of its current boundaries and rapidly growing content. In a nutshell, it provides much needed definition and intellectual respectability to a field that as recently as 1960 was more firmly rooted in the world of arts and crafts than in scholarly research.
By Michael D. Day (editor) and Elliot W. Eisner (editor)

9780807735114 | Teachers College Pr, April 1, 1996, cover price $49.00 | About this edition: This volume examines some of the most important ideas currently influencing evaluation and assessment practices in the field of art education in a variety of international settings and in both school and museum contexts.

In this book scholars address critical issues in qualitative inquiry. For each issue two papers are presented, followed by a commentary and usually a response from one of the paper presenters. Thus, this volume provides a picture of the current debate as it unfolds among some of the nation's leading educational scholars. An introduction by editors Eisner and Peshkin traces the development of the contemporary interest in qualitative inquiry from the period when such work was considered problematic. Now the commitment to qualitative research by a host of distinguished scholars testifies to its "rooting in American academic life". As the editors emphasize, this book's exploration of issues in qualitative inquiry is intended not to offer "the last word" but "to extend the dialogue on matters of consequence to those who are committed not only to qualitative research but also to research of quality."
