9780415366458: Reimagining Schools: The Selected Works of Elliot W. Eisner (World Library of Educationalists)

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.

About the Author:

Professor Eisner works in three fields: Arts Education, Curriculum Studies, and Qualitative Research Methodology (identifying practical uses of critical qualitative methods from the arts in schools settings and teaching processes). His research interests focus on the development of aesthetic intelligence and on the use of methods from the arts to study and improve educational practice. Originally trained as a painter, Elliot Eisner's teaching and research centre around the ways in which schools might improve by using the processes of the arts in all their programs.

Elliot W. Eisner is Professor of Education and Art at Stanford University
