The Arts and Higher Education. Programme of Study into the Future of Higher Education.
Robinson, Ken, Ed.
Issues concerning arts in higher education are considered in discussion papers, group reports, and recommendations from the fifth seminar of the Leverhulme Programme of the Study into the Future of Higher Education. In "The Issues," Peter Brinson and Ken Robinson suggest that the arts are vitally important for the quality of national life and, therefore, are a central concern for higher education. John Blacking considers the value of an anthropological perspective concerning the arts in "A Case for Higher Education in the Arts"; Malcolm Griffiths explores a concept of community responsibility for the arts in "Pyramids of Excellence?"; and John Allen considers the current range of provision for the arts in higher education in "Where Are the Arts Best Taught?" Finally, Brian Trowell considers arts courses in higher education in "Course Designs," and David Bethel discusses facilities, staff, program costs, and grants and funding in "Resources." Group reports and recommendations are also presented for music, art and design, literature, film/television, dance, and drama. Appended materials include a list of schools and their arts offerings, data on number of courses and enrollments by level, and a lists of museums and arts centers utilized by universities. (SW)
