From School Teacher to University Lecturer: Illuminating the Journey from the Classroom to the University for Two Arts Educators
Carrillo, Carmen; Baguley, Margaret
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v27 n1 p62-72 Jan 2011
This article aims to provide insights into the journey of two artist teachers who currently work as arts educators at the university level. Narrative inquiry has been used to discuss how the arts have informed their identities and subsequent transition into their current roles. The identities of artist, artist teacher and arts educator are considered in relation to how these have informed and continue to inform their teaching. The unique characteristics of those who work in the arts are also explored and provide important understandings in relation to the mentoring and support required for educators who work in this context.
