Survey of Art Teacher Educators: Qualifications, Identity, and Practice
Milbrandt, Melody K.; Klein, Sheri R.
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v49 n4 p343-357 2008
A survey conducted in the fall of 2006 on the National Art Education Association Higher Education Listserv yielded rich demographic information about the contexts, preparation, and values of 100 higher education art educator volunteer participants. The academic credentials of art educator participants, along with hiring and promotion practices in higher education, are presented in this descriptive study. Comparisons of art teacher educators' perceptions of their professional identity, the time they invest in their professional activities, and their professional priorities are contrasted with their perceptions of their institutions' values. The issues participants considered most critical to art teacher preparation and future concerns for the field are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
