MATTIL, EDWARD L.
THIS SEMINAR WAS A DEVELOPMENTAL ACTIVITY INTENDED TO STIMULATE RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIELD OF ART EDUCATION. PRIOR TO THIS SEMINAR NO SUBSTANTIAL EFFORTS HAD BEEN MADE TO COORDINATE THE VARIOUS ISOLATED EFFORTS AT RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT THROUGHOUT THE NATION. THERE HAD BEEN FEW ATTEMPTS TO IDENTIFY THE MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS IN ART EDUCATION OR TO FIND MEANS TO STUDY THEM. THIS SEMINAR ATTEMPTED TO FOCUS UPON FIVE MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS--THE PHILOSOPHICAL AREA, THE SOCIOLOGICAL AREA, THE CONTENT AREA, THE EDUCATIONAL-PSYCHOLOGICAL OR TEACHING AND LEARNING AREA, AND THE CURRICULUM OR PROGRAM AREA. NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED SPECIALISTS FROM THE FIELDS OF PHILOSOPHY, SOCIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, ART HISTORY, ART STUDIO, ART CRITICISM, CURRICULUM, RESEARCH, AND EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY MET WITH RESEARCH SPECIALISTS FROM ART EDUCATION FOR A 10-DAY PERIOD TO EXAMINE THE PROBLEM AREAS AND TO FORMULATE AND EVALUATE RESEARCH PROPOSALS RELATING TO THESE AREAS. TWELVE PAPERS WERE PRESENTED AND EACH PAPER WAS FOLLOWED BY INTENSIVE DISCUSSION. THE OBJECTIVES INVOLVED ESTABLISHING A BASE OF KNOWLEDGE FROM WHICH TO DEVELOP RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM PROPOSALS, DEFINING SPECIFIC PROBLEM AREAS WHICH COULD BE EFFECTIVELY STUDIED THROUGH RESEARCH OR AFFECTED BY CURRICULUM CHANGE, AND REFORMULATING BASIC KNOWLEDGE IN ART EDUCATION.
