Preconference Education Research Training Program for Descriptive Research in Art Education. Final Report.
The purpose of this publication is to inspire an interest in research and encourage art teachers at all levels to seek more information and try this methodology (descriptive research in art education) in their own teaching environment. There are some who see art and science as quite distinctly different approaches to reality. Another view is that art and science come together at the point of active discovery. This presentation is made with two observations in mind: (1) Many art educators distrust science generally; (2) Many tend to be wholistic in personality. The document is divided into five sections. It is concluded that art educators trained in research methods are relatively few and their combined number cannot provide the descriptive data that is needed. It is hoped that more interest and active involvement in gathering descriptive material will come from teachers and supervisors working in the schools and colleges. Five appendices are attached. (CK)
