    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available Consumption Culture and Art Education: Cultural Compounds of Traditional Resistances and Futuristic Strategies In Postmodern(ist Art Education New cultural fields and definitions have begun to develop through the globalization of cultural policies. It is inevitable that pedagogical debates in reference to the culture contact with art education in a great level. While a cultural study is to have a connection with other fields, art education is thought to be fed by a dynamic forming a common ground between conditions of cultural fields and those of itself. It is likely to express plenty of contents to be referred to art education by regarding culture of consumption of culture and art as an axis. These contents consist of the following titles such as traditional, actual and futuristic assessments of culture, experience of consumption, aesthetic of consumption, contents of visual and social consumption, concepts of consumption in art and consumption motivations of postmodern individual. Therefore, it is required to consider that connection between consumption culture and art education is a content belonging to postmodern art education and will become a notable scope in prospective art education in view of strategic facts

  5. Visual Culture, Art Education and the everyday: hybridisms and paradoxes

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mirela Ribeiro Meira

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Art education in school faces instigating and provocative challenges, for instance, the teacher confronts: how to work with everyday issues and images. In the art field, Visual Culture can point to approximations between life, its paradoxes, the everyday, its hybridism and school, with its challenges. In considering the possibilities of teaching art, we discuss the contributions of authors such as: Merleau-Ponty, Nicolas Bourriaud, Michel Maffesoli, and also, Edgar Morin, who calls for the necessity for complex thinking when thinking about a complex reality of crossed borders, hybridisms, uncertainty and contradictions that, for this very reason, permit rich dialogues between art, education and culture.

  20. Culture and Cultural Competence in Nursing Education and Practice: The State of the Art.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harkess, Linda; Kaddoura, Mahmoud

    2016-07-01

    The concept of cultural competency has developed a substantial presence in nursing education and practice since first attracting widespread attention in the 1990s. While several theories and corresponding measures of cultural competency have been advanced and tried, much work remains, as many nursing professionals continue to call for greater evidence-based research and attention to patient perspectives and outcomes. Using a method provided by Hawker et al. to appraise articles, this paper compares nine recent (2008-2013) studies (including two composite studies) related to cultural competency, undergraduate curricula, and teaching strategies in nursing to assess the state of the art in this important area of care. The studies applied phenomenological, study abroad, online, and service learning strategies, four of which relied on some version of Campinha-Bacote's IAPCC© model. These studies reported a general improvement in competency among students, though generally only to a level of cultural awareness, and admitted being constrained by several common limitations. Improved results and more realistic expectations in this area may require a closer understanding of the nature of the "culture" that underlies cultural competence.

  8. A ‘LANGUAGE’ OF MODERNIZATION: CULTURE AND ART EDUCATION IN THE VILLAGE INSTITUTES

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gökhan AK

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available The Village Institutes were originally-designed in-place-training institutions of the Turkish education history. They had been a very significant and unique educational-product of Turkey which were gifted to all secular [modern] world education systems. Because these Institutes were explored in line with thoroughly native considerations and foresights. Thus the Institutes punched their latterday principles and values not only in the Turkish, but also in many contemporary world education systems. Although the Institutes were shut down by some reactionary political approaches, their impacts, educational power and pedagogic wealth had reached until today. The main reason for that could be defined with various aspects. First of all, these institutions had adopted an unique educational model which was directly based on the universal science, culture and fine arts. This approach ensured authentic innovative styles for tudents of the Institutes, not only in the village field, but also in every educational level. Thus it should be emphasized that one of the most important aspects with this innovative education method was that the Village Institutes were conceived with a ‘revolutionary’ and ‘enlightenment’ understanding. This noteworthy aspect was what made them unique at first. Thus the aim of this research will firstly become to analyze educational model and system of the Village Institutes stemming from their unique, native, humanist and secular educational methods; and secondly explore how much innovative the Village Institutes were in the fields of science, culture and art. This study is based on the hypothesis-deduction method. Thus findings method for the study will follow a from-general-to-specific case approach. In this study, literature review and content analysis research methods will mainly be used.

    The paradigm of speculative research and documents ,logical analysis and other research methods were used to study the cultural characteristics of martial art education .We hold that :martial art education in itself is a transmission and inheritance of cul‐ture ,and martial art education is a process of inheritance of cultural spirits and values;the evolution of martial art education is closely related to and the historical background and the themes of martial art education varied in different time periods ;Chinese mar‐tial art culture has the characteristics of “Unity in Diversity”and it cover three cultural levels :objects ,ideas and methods ;the loss of cultural characteristics of martial art education can lead to alienation of martial arts ;to realize a shift from simply learning and passing down of skills to cultural inheritance highlights the cultural characteristics of martial arts and is the basic way to eliminate the alienation of martial arts .%采用思辨研究的范式,运用文献研究、逻辑分析等研究方法对武术教育的文化性进行研究。认为:武术教育的本身就是文化的传递与延承,武术教育是一种文化精神与价值的传承过程;武术教育的演进与时代背景紧密相关,不同时期的武术教育主题各异;中国武术文化具有“多元一体”的特征其文化层次主要涵盖器物、思想和方式三个层面;武术教育的文化性丧失可以导致武术传承和武术本身的异化;实现由单纯的技能传习向文化传承的转变,彰显武术的文化性特征是消弭武术异化的基本途径。

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available The study discusses the animation of cultural historical heritage from educational perspective and its use in the school environment. Theoretical framework presents a contemporary perception of those two phenomena and is followed by interpretation of results of a questionnaire survey. The survey was conducted in Czech lower secondary schools in the Liberec region in 2011. The aim of the research was to investigate how the topics are present in art education and how they are perceived by teachers of art education. The research sample consisted of 81 teachers and provided answers to 9 questions. The analysis, classification and categorising of the results indicates a focus on artistic themes as preferred field of cultural historical heritage for teaching with the objectives of overall development of students personality. Due to the vague idea about the animation method, the cultural historical heritage theme presented by animation is almost not used.

  17. The Curricular Reform of Art Education in Primary School in Slovenia in Terms of Certain Components of the European Competence of Cultural Awareness and Expression

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rajka Bračun Sova

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available One of the important positions of the last curricular reform in Slovenia, which included systemic issues of education (White Paper on Education, 2011 and curricula for compulsory subjects in primary school, is the fact that Slovenia has been integrated into Europe, and thus education should also include the development of core European competences. One such competence is cultural awareness and expression, which until now has been an issue more in the context of cultural policies than school policies in Slovenia. The purpose of the present article is to critically analyse the curricular reform of art education (i.e., visual art education, through which, in terms of certain components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression, it is foreseen that the student will gain a knowledge of art, develop an ability to experience works of art and develop a creative attitude towards art and heritage. Because the starting point and goal of curricular change is the curriculum, our analysis is derived from curriculum theories, and not from the art theories and pedagogical theories that have predominantly framed previous attempts at curriculum analysis. Critical consideration of the curricular reform of art education in primary school in terms of certain components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression was undertaken by comparing curricula in the field of aesthetic education. We compared art education with music education and literature within the Slovenian language curriculum. Qualitative analysis showed that, despite the reform, the curriculum for arts education does not realise selected components of the competence of cultural awareness and expression, largely due to the curriculum’s conceptual structure. Art education is centred principally on art-making activities, with an obvious neglect of appreciation. The integration of arts subjects at school, as proposed by the White Paper, is therefore not possible, due to the existing

  20. The art and science of diabetes education: a culture out of balance.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Anderson, Robert M; Funnell, Martha M

    2008-01-01

    In the past 20 years, behavioral science has helped create a growing body of theoretically derived, evidenced-based approaches to diabetes patient education. Health care professionals in all disciplines are being required to demonstrate that their practice is evidence based. For diabetes educators, behavioral science is the source of much of that evidence. However, effective diabetes education involves a combination of art and science. Establishing a therapeutic alliance with patients is an art. Diabetes educators must have the interpersonal skills, values, and personal traits needed to cultivate relationships with patients that are characterized by trust, respect, and acceptance. They must feel and be able to express compassion, empathy, and warmth. However, if someone outside the field were reviewing diabetes education evaluation research, they would probably conclude that diabetes educators are interchangeable cogs in a wheel. The positive impact of the therapeutic alliance is well documented in the counseling, psychotherapy, education, and nursing literature. However, evidence to support the important role of the diabetes educator's values, interpersonal skills, and ability to establish a therapeutic alliance with patients is absent from that literature. Valid and reliable measures used to document the impact of interpersonal skills counselors and teachers could be used in diabetes education with little or no adaptation. The evidence and tools exist; we now need to determine if the will exists.

  11. Robotic art, culture and cultural imagination

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Romic, Bojana

    2015-01-01

    In the recent years there has been an ongoing debate about the notion and (possible) function of robotic culture; with the development of the new generation of drones, as well as the advancement in social and health robotics, questions about robot culture seem to open a variety of discussions...... – beginning with the inquiry of how can we grasp the notion of culture, as an umbrella term for the range of habitual and technological practices, in relation to equally heterogeneous field of robotics. This article aims to accentuate the importance of cultural imagination of robots in situating the robotic...... research, observing it 'as a mixed register of fantasy and an actual practice' (Kakoudaki, 2007). The emphasis will be put on the robotic art which, I argue, is in the fluid state of exchange with other areas of robotic research, equally benefiting from the larger context of cultural imagination of robots...

    At present, art-educational research seems locked into a number of unexamined assumptions--largely derived from European Romantic ideology--about artistic productiveness as a desirable psychological trait. We need to know more about other cultural patterns of artistic behavior and the historic and social factors that influence them. (Author/SJL)

En este texto se abordan las posibles extensiones que, desde la inclusión de las artes escénicas como disciplina escolar, se abren en los niveles macro, meso y micro que inciden en la gestión de una institución. En el primer nivel, se aborda el tema desde la perspectiva de la gestión cultural y las políticas públicas que regulan el devenir escolar y las relaciones fuera de la escuela. En el nivel meso, se alude a la necesidad de cambiar la mirada de los formadores en relación con el arte como objeto cultural y su incidencia intrainstitucional. En el nivel micro, se presenta la validación de la "cultura de grupo" que viabiliza la construcción del sujeto como ser de convivencia, y como sujeto en construcción cognitiva, axiológica y social. En las conclusiones se propone una discusión de estas diferentes pistas que actualmente orientan las investigaciones en este campo.The relationship between theater teaching at school and the learning process and child development is a priority area in research in art education.

  4. PHYSICAL EDUCATION BETWEEN ART AND SCIENCE

    Full Text Available Physical Education has its own definition inside the system of anthropomorphological sciences. But, there is a question whether it is possible to explain the phenomenon of physical education only inside of the system of abstrct atitudes based on an objective observation of reality or it is (at least some of its parts are an activity which has for an object the stimulation of human senses, mind or spirit. In this essey we discuss, in a very subjective way, the matter which concerns the culture in order to define the position of physical education inside the art system. The word "art" can relate to the variety of subjects, feelings or activities. Because of it, the fragments of art can be defined as creative interpretations of indefinite concepts or ideas. Having in mind the fact that in a world of art it is not possible to define standards that determine the art itself, according to the criteria which are generally accepted, it is still possible to make connection between sport and art by some rational observation. This work can enter the history thanks to the initiative to accept the sport as an aspect of art

Various interpretationsof interactivity and its components – interaction, communication, dia logue, polylogue, interpretation, reinterpretation, intonation, feelings, comprehension, generalization (reflection, and experience – are given. In the methodology context, the author traces out the similarity of interactive concepts in general didactics and the humanities knowledge (M. M. Bakhtin, V. S. Bibler, and maintains that the main components of interactive teaching include the basic categories of culture, art, music, and psychology of artistic perception and creativity. Therefore, similarity of the content and approach to interpreting the conceptual terminological apparatus of interactive education makes it possible to implement the interactive techniques in teaching the cycle of music and arts disciplines.

  13. Performing Beauty in Participatory Art and Culture

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Heinrich, Falk

    This book investigates the notion of beauty in participatory art, an interdisciplinary form that necessitates the audience’s agential participation and that is often seen in interactive art and technology-driven media installations. After considering established theories of beauty, for example......, Plato, Alison, Hume, Kant, Gadamer and Santayana through to McMahon and Sartwell, Heinrich argues that the experience of beauty in participatory art demands a revised notion of beauty; a conception that accounts for the performative and ludic turn within various art forms and which is, in a broader...... sense, a notion of beauty suited to a participatory and technology-saturated culture. Through case studies of participatory art, he provides an art-theoretical approach to the concept of performative beauty; an approach that is then applied to the wider context of media and design artefacts....

  14. Yugoslav Naive Art and Popular Culture

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Meta Kordiš

    2009-12-01

    After the Second World War, the Yugoslav socialist state also strove to equalize and democratize society through art by minimizing the differences between the producers and consumers of art. Such a policy led to the decentralization of culture by forming various cultural and artistic institutions and by holding cultural events and spectacles in the countryside and peripheral areas. Through these various informal ideological mechanisms, the state apparatus exercised its authority in socializing its people in the spirit of Yugoslav socialist self-management and the ideology of brotherhood and unity by joining together the producers and consumers of naive art from various ethnicities, cultures, and social classes. Unfortunately this transformed naive art at its peak of popularity into a decorative and souvenir artifact with a pastoral image and folklore motifs. The encouragement from the authorities on the one hand and the market on the other produced and reproduced simple art forms and narrative contents without a complex iconography, which were consumed uncritically and on a large scale. Consequently, this completely denied the core of naive art and resulted in its final devaluation.

    Is the art of medical education just making sure to provide sufficient up to date medical knowledge and a lot of clinical experience? It is much more. The art of medical education is about a teaching program that is designed to serve the community of the near future. The program is the result of a thorough evaluation of societal needs and is capable of influencing the properties of future care. New care professionals who are trained in the program will -become instrumental in solving complex problems in health systems. The art of medical education is about the change of traditional ideas of how to cope with these health systems. This change will raise anger and resistance. Effective change management is essential to survive attacks from laggards and to maintain enthusiasm to invest in the health care of the future. Educationalist science provides several important insights that help us find the optimal shape of the program. Good role models and a learning environment that is an example of the intended professional and organisational behaviour, learning by doing, simulation programs, educational tools like e-learning systems, a good assessment and feedback system, and a portfolio to prove and discuss professional progress are all pivotal components of the ideal program. To achieve mastery within the art of medical education, a quality improvement program will be the crown of the process. Medical education is a multifaceted process and so the quality improvement should be. The art of medical education is a great challenge. The health care of your future deserves it.

    During the past decades, improvements in culture of preimplantation embryos have contributed substantially in the success of human assisted reproductive techniques. However, most efforts were focused on optimization of media and gas components, while the established physical conditions and applied devices have remained essentially unchanged. Very recently, however, intensive research has been started to provide a more appropriate environment for the embryos and to replace the rather primitive and inappropriate devices with more sophisticated and practical instruments. Success has been reported with simple or sophisticated tools (microwells or microchannels) that allow accumulation of autocrine factors and establishment of a proper microenvironment for embryos cultured individually or in groups. The microchannel system may also offer certain level of automation and increased standardization of culture parameters. Continuous monitoring of individual embryos by optical or biochemical methods may help to determine the optimal day of transfer, and selection of the embryo with highest developmental competence for transfer. This advancement may eventually lead to adjustment of the culture environment to each individual embryo according to its actual needs. Connection of these techniques to additional radical approaches as automated ICSI or an ultimate assisted hatching with full removal of the zona pellucida after or even before fertilization may result in devices with high reliability and consistency, to increase the overall efficiency and decrease the work-intensity, and to eliminate the existing technological gap between laboratory embryology work and most other fields of biomedical sciences.

El objetivo es intentar articular sendas propuestas y localizar en ellas nodos convergentes que permitan ampliar la mirada sobre la problemática de la reproducción cultural incorporando a la discusión ámbitos mayormente excluidos de ésta. Para ello partiremos de la exposición sociológica de la teoría bourdieana, por ser la que da cuenta, a nuestro entender, de una visión macro del problema, para luego revisar la Teoría de los Discursos Sociales de Verón, por ser ésta la que nos permite pensar al discurso, y en particular a los discursos sociales, en tanto discursos intencionales, como herramientas potenciales del intercambio semiótico a nivel social. Por último, abordaremos la importancia del concepto de poliglotismo dado por Lotman en el marco de su concepción sobre el desarrollo y la reproducción cultural pues consideramos que este concepto puede contribuir a esclarecer la forma en que los mensajes artísticos vehiculan la reproducción cultural a través de los mecanismos de transmisión/traducción que activan, a la manera de operadores semióticos, la relación tensional necesaria entre la tradición y la innovación de todo sistema cultural. Es en este sentido que nuestro trabajo se inserta en la discusión sobre la reproducción de la cultura; en su premisa primera, subyace la idea de considerar la descripción, explicación y comprensión del fenómeno de la reproducción cultural no sólo desde una perspectiva antropológica y sociológica, sino como inseparable de perspectivas teóricas muchas veces diferenciadas como la que constituye al arte.

It also intends to reflect on how the actions undertaken by these youth can cut across the discussion between occupational therapy and culture. Therefore, we worked with some fragments of life stories of three young people engaged in cultural collective distinctive - marginal literature soiree, hip hop movement and audiovisual production - in the districts of Brasilândia and Vila Nova Cachoeirinha in the north of the city of São Paulo, whose we could follow through ethnographic incursions in protagonized cultural activities or in which they participate and oral history interviews. The youth subjectivities productions has been configured as a live territory marked not only by poverty and violence experiences, but, also by collective and creative productions, a brand new life style through aesthetic inventions in the periphery where the stigma of being young, negro and poor gives place to an emblem: the pride of being from the periphery. This emblematic territory is highlighted in cultural collective, particularly in Sarau Poetry Brasa and Cinescadão, two strategies of art and culture that invoke an experience resistance, transforming the experiences of violence and vulnerability that are experienced on the outskirts, in ethical, aesthetic and policies practices.

    2016-01-01

    This is a cultural history of mathematics and art, from antiquity to the present. Mathematicians and artists have long been on a quest to understand the physical world they see before them and the abstract objects they know by thought alone. Taking readers on a tour of the practice of mathematics and the philosophical ideas that drive the discipline, Lynn Gamwell points out the important ways mathematical concepts have been expressed by artists. Sumptuous illustrations of artworks and cogent math diagrams are featured in Gamwell’s comprehensive exploration. Gamwell begins by describing mathematics from antiquity to the Enlightenment, including Greek, Islamic, and Asian mathematics. Then focusing on modern culture, Gamwell traces mathematicians’ search for the foundations of their science, such as David Hilbert’s conception of mathematics as an arrangement of meaning-free signs, as well as artists’ search for the essence of their craft, such as Aleksandr Rodchenko’s monochrome paintings. She shows t...

    Full Text Available This article examines the special nature of Te Whāriki, Aotearoa New Zealand’s early childhood national curriculum, as a dynamic social, cultural document through an exploration of two art-inspired imaginary case studies. Thinking with Te Whāriki retains the potential to ignite thinking post-developmentally about art, pedagogy and practice in teacher education, and in the field. It offers examples of how creating spaces for engaging (with art as pedagogy acts as a catalyst for change, art offers a dynamic way of knowing, and being-with the different life-worlds we inhabit. While new paradigms for thinking and practicing art in education continue to push the boundaries of developmentally and individually responsive child-centred pedagogies, an emphasis on multiple literacies often gets in the way. This prohibits opportunities for engaging in other more complex approaches to pedagogy and art as subject-content knowledge, something essential for developing a rich curriculum framework. The article draws on research that emphasises the importance of teacher education in opening up spaces for thinking about (the history of art in/and of education as more than a communication/language tool. It considers an inclusive and broad knowledge-building-communities approach that values the contribution that art, artists, and others offer the 21st early learning environments we find ourselves in.

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available The starting  point  of this paper is a classroom situation arisen in the training of teachers on early childhood  education. As a result of a discussion on the role of art mu seums in the educational  process of my own students  as well as on its impact  on their  current  relationship  with the  arts  world, I considered  running  an inquest  which could allow us to make a diagnosis based on data, rather than on mere assumptions,  in order to shed light on the current  links between schools and art venues. The outcome  of this investigation  revealed without  doubt that  the  traditional rapport between  schools  and  mu seums, supported on guided tours for the  students,  fails to achieve the  educational  and  sensibilizing  purpose  it claims to have. So, this paper argues that, provided a more collaborative  and steady relationship  between  these  two educational  areas, this situation  could be improved,  and at the same time reoriented towards the inner experience of art rather  than  towards providing  information about artists, works of art, styles and so forth.

    2015-01-01

    On the background of visual culture, the preschool art education has mainly focused on three issues: lacking of visual edu-cation, indifference about culture awareness, and inappropriate of professional guidance. Since reform is necessary in preschool art educa-tion under visual culture background, the reform should be based on child-development, and concentrate on both art accomplishment and humanities education, child-development-based. The reform might be originated from living art, and integrating from feelings or appreci-ations to expressions or creations. The reform might be mainly carried out by games, which connect children’s self-experience or individ-ually expression. Finally, teaching training is important to synchronously developing teaching staffs’ professional growth and reformation.%视觉文化背景下学前儿童美术教育的问题主要体现在以下三个方面:“视觉教育”的缺失﹑“文化意识”的淡漠﹑“专业指导”的乏力;视觉文化背景下学前儿童美术教育改革应当以儿童发展为本,美术素养与人文教育并重;以生活美术为源,感受欣赏与表现创造融合;以游戏活动为主,自主体验与个性表达联通;以师资培训为要,专业成长与改革发展同步。

  5. The Basics of Art Education (Based on I. A. Ilyin’s Works

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. Z. Goncharov

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper is dedicated to the art perception of various genres based on the comparative analysis method. The authors emphasize the esthetic heritage of Ivan Ilyin and his spiritual actology – the reliable guidelines for those following in the footsteps of Alexander Pushkin in the Russian art. The research was designed to spec- ify the basic esthetic and art study categories, introduced by Ivan Ilyin and including the basic content of the modern art education; the concepts of the creative artistic act, levels of work of art, artistry and art education being defined. On the basis of the clas- sical works on esthetics by the eminent Russian thinker, the authors analyze the es- sence of artistic perception; different levels of art work being discussed, as well as the artistic act of creating an art object and requirements for art education. The art education problem is getting even more relevant because of the culture degradation, technocratic civilization of triviality, displacement of genuine art by com- mercial shows, etc. However, only due to the genuine art, the productive perception can be developed as the basic quality of creativity in any sphere. The art teachers, art- ists and art critics working together can promote the general spiritual level by teaching people to strive for artistic perfection, rather then senseless entertainment. The research findings can be implemented both in the theoretical spheres of es- thetics and art studies, and in the system of teaching the disciplines of cultural, esthe- tic and art profiles.

  7. Betting for Integral Formation through the Models of Arts Education

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Julia Margarita Barco Rodríguez

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available For a long time integral formation has been a main purpose of educational curricula. But even though it proves necessary on the ground of the benefits education may bring to human development, its outcomes are not always visible and many times it actually does not exist beyond the speech. In the field of arts teaching, the wholeness of human expressions seems to be one of the main goals in the formative purposes for young people and children. Such a commitment demands serious reflection on how and what artistic practices may bring to the formation of integral citizens, be it from the perspective of free expression or from a cognitivist or cultural one. Tracking the curricula in art education will allow us to understand the movement and whereabouts of such a high view, bringing together the conceptual and methodological arguments for it to match contemporaneity, so underlining the pertinence of art practices in education.

  8. Nordic contemporary art education and the environment: Constructing an epistemological platform for Art Education for Sustainable Development (AESD

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Helene Illeris

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available How can art educators address questions of environmental sustainability, accepting to be ethically normative but avoiding becoming dogmatic? How can the complex ‘pool’ of knowledge generated in and through art education research become useful in working with these questions, which many of us find overwhelmingly difficult? AESD – Art Education for Sustainable Development – is a concept coined for this article with the intention of bringing environmental problems onto the agenda. In an attempt to provoke the necessary discussion about environmental sustainability in art education, the article examines selected texts from recent Nordic research in order to build an ‘epistemological platform’ that might function as a research-based ‘tool’ for discussing environmental issues. The article is organized in four sections, which refer to the four ’cornerstones’ of the platform, where each cornerstone corresponds to a recent current in art education. These currents, as defined by the author, are: critical art education, poststructuralist strategies, visual culture pedagogy, and community oriented visual practices. Using selected Nordic texts as material for the analysis, the epistemological perspective of each current is briefly presented and its relationship to evironmental questions is discussed. In the final discussion, eight keywords are presented: praxis, change, performance, reflexivity, visuality, event, situatedness and collaboration. When put together, these concepts offer a dynamic picture of the ‘pool’ of ideas offered by contemporary Nordic and international research, which will be useful for  ‘performing’ AESD both as teaching practices and as research.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fernando Miranda

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper reflects on a project of production, development and understanding of educational mediation forms, targeted to teenagers, through a program based on the relationship between Arts, Science and Technology. These are actions that "parasitize" the contents of contemporary art proposals developed in a contemporary art space in the city of Montevideo. Relationships are established with such content, produced by "others”, in this case, artists and visual creators, to generate creative alternatives regarding new possibilities of meaning and representation. Analysis is proposed on the basis of a teaching laboratory condition and public mediation associated to contemporary artistic production, with a format linked to an educational curatorship of the exhibition under a visual culture perspective.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Osman, Magda; Eacott, Bella; Willson, Suzy

    2017-08-19

    Healthcare education institutions are increasingly including arts-based interventions in their programmes. We analysed 62 studies of arts-based interventions to understand how these interventions may be beneficial, and why providing evidence continues to be a challenge for the field.Our analysis highlighted two issues. We found that 79% of the included studies reported that their interventions were successful, but without always defining this success or how it was measured. This lack of clarity was apparent in descriptions of both what arts-based interventions aimed to do, and in descriptions of how they might do this. We also found that only 34% of studies involved a collaboration with artists or arts educators, raising questions over who had the necessary experience and specialism in the arts to design and deliver such interventions.Our analysis revealed that arts-based interventions are failing to acknowledge, and subsequently capture through assessment, the process of learning in the moment. This is particularly important because arts-based pedagogies typically use embodied, practical, physical methods, in which what is being learnt cannot be separated from the process of learning. Involving artists and arts educators throughout the process of designing and delivering these interventions may help to bring clarity over what arts-based interventions are aiming to do and how they may do this, and ensure that appropriate evaluation methods are used. We suggest that close observation with feedback, and the use of reflective portfolios are two ways of assessing the process of learning in arts-based interventions. © Article author(s) (or their employer(s) unless otherwise stated in the text of the article) 2017.

    Full Text Available This paper reflects on the situation of arts teaching in the 5th to 8th grades in mainstream elementary education. The study was carried out in public schools in a city in the state of Paraná in 2004. The data was collected by means of questionnaires. Among the problems identified, primary is; the lack of specific teacher training and the lack of a conception about artistic work and, as a result, a visible constraint in their educational practice. The paper presents a historical retrospective of the teaching of arts in Brazilian education in order to understand how the educational policies are implemented. The understanding of art as an activity, polyvalence and free expression demonstrate remains of the 5.692/71 Law in the context investigated.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to evaluate the teaching of the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART approach in Brazilian dental schools. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A questionnaire on this subject was sent to Pediatric Dentistry, Operative Dentistry and Public Health Dentistry professors. The questions approached the followig subjects: the method used to teach ART, the time spent on its teaching, under which discipline it is taught, for how many years ART has been taught and its effect on the DMFT index. RESULTS: A total of 70 out of 202 dental schools returned the questionnaire. The ART approach is taught in the majority of the Brazilian dental schools (96.3%, and in most of these schools it is taught both in theory and in clinical practice (62.9%. The majority (35.3% of professors teach ART for 8 hours, and most often as part of the Pediatric Dentistry discipline (67.6%. It has been taught for the last 7 to 10 years in 34.3% of dental schools. Most professors did not observe a change in the DMFT index with this approach. There is a diversity in the teaching of ART in Brazil in terms of the number of hours spent, the teaching method (theory and practice, and the disciplines involved in its teaching. CONCLUSIONS: It is necessary to address the training of professors in the ART approach for the whole country. An educational model is proposed whereby a standard ART module features as part of other preventive and restorative caries care educational modules. This will facilitate and standardize the introduction and adoption of the ART approach in undergraduate education in Brazil.

    Breastfeeding education must motivate a complete workforce in such a way that they are equipped with the fundamentals and extended skills to carry out their role as infant feeding gurus, throughout their career. To achieve this with any success, there is an intrinsic need to establish a total understanding of both the physiology and emotional importance which underlies the art of breastfeeding. Only when this is attained will passion and longevity for the 'art' be fully embraced and respected.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this action-research project was to evaluate the impact of high school students’ involvement in community-oriented, art-based work in the social studies. In Detroit, high school students engaged in persuasive writing and design while exploring community issues. The project culminated in the installation of student artwork on a billboard in the city’s cultural center. Mixed methods were employed to evaluate the project; forty-seven students completed surveys at its conclusion. The findings suggest that creative projects with real-world applications are motivational, and they promote civic education. The majority of the students reported that their awareness of community issues had increased. This study has implications for the implementation of projects for democratic education and service learning, arts integration in the social studies, and the use of authentic assessments in contextual, culturally responsive teaching

The strength of public support for the arts historically has been measured by per capita arts spending, as determined by appropriations to state arts agencies.

Profession Dilemmas in the music and art educational fields is edited by Elin Angelo and Signe Kalsnes.

  10. Social responsibility through art-education

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    D' Oliveira, Celso A.; Teixeira, Sandra R.C.; Teixeira, Karla B. [PETROBRAS, Rio de Janeiro, RJ (Brazil)

    2009-07-01

    Curiosity about the job site of a pipeline is a strong characteristic among the residents in the area of influence of the PETROBRAS Engineering works, especially because of their proximity and direct interference in people's daily lives. In this context, children demand special attention concerning aspects such as Health, Safety and Environment (HSE). The opening of trenches and the movements of pipes, machines, and heavy equipment creates a fantastic, toy filled world in a child's imagination, which demands the disclosure of possible hazards caused by the job. To mitigate such risks and to extol the positive impacts brought to these communities, PETROBRAS created the Program 'Smart Kids Play Safe' aimed at the public in the 5-12-year-old range in order to encourage safe behavior and the development of a sense of citizenship and respect for the environment by means of playful educational activities including tricks, games, theaters, and workshops, and so on. The program seeks to link the content worked and the terms used to the reality of the target audience in order to maximize the assimilation of the concepts. These events could take place out in the open as well as inside a school. If in school, the role of the teacher becomes fundamental to the suitability of the contents, in addition to his or her experience and active participation during the events. During the construction of the GNL Pipeline main in 2008, in the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area, PETROBRAS felt the necessity of creating a program that could attract and at the same time sensitize children to the hazards of playing near a pipeline construction site. And to that end, the company decided to involve educators in this process and created the Social Responsibility through Art-Education Program. A culture of environmental protection, and the concepts of socialization, safety, health and citizenship must all be self-sustaining. This contributes to the improvement of Basic

    On the basis of first a critique of Bakhurst view on (respectively) the notion of “ the space of reasons”, “second nature” and “formation”, and second, Wittgenstein´s view on culture and education, I go into details about how one might apply Wittgensteinian thought within a new assessment...... of education, seen as a matter of “taking steps” within a toolbox or platform generated by forms of teaching. Invoking Kierkegaard, I conclude that the educated person does not incarnate “an absolute difference” in relation to non-educated beings. The educated person is instead the embodiment of “a difference......” ,that is, of an individuality. Education is not taking the individual from A (barbarian state) to B (better having than not having); it is providing the platform for the possibility of the actuality of somebody´s “being at B”. The argument is: Teaching gives different individuals the same such platform...

    Lordly, Daphne

    2014-01-01

    University nutrition students' experiences of participation in an arts module as part of a senior nutrition course were explored to gain an understanding of the relationship of art to dietetics practice. The module comprised discussions, readings, and presentations from dietitian artists, along with three assignments: the production of art, an artist statement, and a reflection paper. The art production depicting an aspect of body image was presented to the class and optionally at a body image conference. An exploratory, qualitative methodology informed by Schön's reflective practice framework was employed. Three surveys administered at various times during the arts module were used to collect students' reflections and were thematically analyzed. Three themes emerged: hesitance to acceptance, emotion and connection, and relationship with dietetics. The education process facilitated a transformation among students, noted as changes in knowledge, perceptions, and attitudes over the course of the module. The arts provide an alternative platform for an exploration of self and others, for improving practice, and for an examination of novel ways for doing so. Reflection as an education component enables students to contemplate relationships, knowledge, emotions, and practice as interrelated and evolving entities.

    2014-02-01

    Using the major format identified for successful prevention and intervention work, five "W" questions: what, why, whom, where, and who, plus one: how, this article first summarizes the current body art literature. Then, educational strategies specifically regarding the topic of tattoos and body piercing are presented for school nurses. These strategies can be used to create applicable, realistic information for young students before they are faced with decisions related to body art. The school nurse might be the first and only credible source of information the students receive related to body art in an education/health environment. Curriculum emphasis is on the decision making leading up to the action, and the major purposes, rather than on the markings or jewelry associated with procurement. Reducing decisional conflict while promoting positive development in the areas of empowerment, self-esteem, and maturing can help achieve stronger informed decision making.

    2010-01-01

    This article outlines ideas and results of a design-for-learning experiment, involving arts analysis in the nurse education in Denmark. The original purpose of the experiment was to investigate new ways of supporting personal knowledge building and building of professional judgement skills...... for nurse students, according to a phenomenological approach to learning. The results and learning outcome for the students however surprisingly showed that arts analysis had a very clear impact on the nurse students being creative in their building of personal and professional knowledge. The experiment...... suggests that arts can be seen as a medium for training what could be termed ‘relational creativity’ as a basis for professional judgement. Relational creativity is not an established theoretical concept, but the article argues that the term might have significance not only to nurse students, but also...

  13. Hermeneutic notions augment cultural safety education.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Spence, Deb G

    2005-09-01

    Nurses are beginning to demand educational approaches that confront racism, rather than teach cultural diversity. One example of the latter approach is the introduction of kawa whakaruruhau, or cultural safety, in nursing and midwifery education in New Zealand. In the nursing and midwifery context of kawa whakaruruhau, nurses and midwives recognize, respect, and nurture the unique cultural identity of New Zealand's indigenous people, the tangata whenua, and safely meets their needs, expectations, and rights. In this article, I integrate literature pertaining to the implementation of cultural safety with the findings of a hermeneutic project that described the experience of nursing people from cultures other than one's own, and argue that the Gadamerian notions of "horizon," "prejudice," and "play" can be used to facilitate understanding of the tensions and contradictions inherent in cross-cultural practice. In addition, I recommend strategies that enable students to explore the prejudices, paradoxes, and possibilities experienced personally and professionally. As Gadamer noted, the art is in seeing what is questionable. There is also art in knowing how to question in a manner that makes new understanding possible.

    Full Text Available The study that I introduce below was represented under the title of identity and cultural studies focused on the dynamics of restructured cultural policy after 1980s. For promoting Turkish culture and art in international exhibitions, Turkish Ministry of Cultural Affairs and Tourism organized international activities such as Turkish years or seasons, and festivals. This study clarifies how and which ways Turkish culture and art are represented in the last thirty years. In addition to, analyzing promotional activities of Turkish art and culture in international scale exhibitions lead to negative consequences in terms of false description and oriental identity constructions. This paper aims to give basic socio-political reason behind the national representation in international art and culture exhibition. From looking at global perspective, these exhibitions are chance to show richness and value of Turkish culture. However, in the process of integration of EU (European Union, strategies that were utilized in international exhibition aimed at promoting cultural codes and images. In order to deconstruct prototypical image of Turkey, the exhibitions provided a site of nation seeing in a global art scene in a common ground. The basic question is that how national representation is changed in the last thirty years in Turkish cultural policy in terms of self representation and identity construction.

    Full Text Available Cultural Heritage scientists need methodologies to examine Art and Archaeology in order to understand artistic materials and techniques and devise better conservation procedures. This review discusses the most successful and promising applications of Terahertz (THz technology in Cultural Heritage Science. THz is used in homeland security and for plenty of other industrial sectors and it presents a number of valuable features specifically for the investigation of Art and Archaeology: No radiation risk, low power, non-contact and reflection mode. Recent technical advancements are also making its application fast, mobile and relatively affordable creating a potential for its diffused implementation in museums. While THz is most promising for the investigation of multilayered art, such as paintings, it has been tested on a very large range of artifacts, from manuscripts to mummies and lacquered historical furniture.

    The "Terra e Arte" project was designed to combine science and art by approaching soil contents in basic education schools in Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The project was developed to awake, sensitize and create awareness about soils and their importance to life and environment within school communities. It was proposed and realized by the Earth Sciences Museum Alexis Dorofeef (MCTAD) of the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV), as part of the celebrations of its 20th anniversary. Since all the schools of the town visit the museum at least once a year and most of them have received and carried out pedagogic projects on soil themes in the last 20 years, it was proposed to them to develop a soil subject with any of their groups and combine it with painting using soil materials. Each group interested in joining the project received a basic set of material to produce soil paints. They were expected to develop a soil theme and its contents for a few weeks and to finalize it with a figurative and textual collective creation that synthetized their learning. 16 of the 24 visited schools joined the project and realized it for an average of two months. During this time, the school groups visited the museum and/or borrowed the itinerant exposition on soils from the museum to work with in in the school community. At the end of the projects, the productions were presented at the Knowledge Market (Feira do Conhecimento) that happens every year in the central square of the town, as part of the National Week of Science and Technology. At the event, 58 works were presented by 14 schools, involving directly 700 pupils and their teachers. They approached themes from soil formation and properties to agroecology and urban occupation and impacts on the soils. 30 of the works were selected for a commemorative exposition and 12 were chosen for a table calendar 2014. The movement created around the project mobilized many people and had strong impact on the school communities, especially

    2006-09-01

    RE-PLAY: RE-ASSESSING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN ARTS PARTNERSHIP IN CANADIAN TEACHER EDUCATION - Elementary teachers in Canada are increasingly expected to deliver arts instruction in their classrooms, as financial exigencies have restricted the hiring of specialists. This study examines the effectiveness of an arts partnership between a Canadian university faculty of education and local-area school boards. In this partnership, university staff and specialist arts teachers together delivered the integrated arts component in teacher education. Findings indicate that specialist arts instruction, peer learning methods and theory/practice integration strengthen such training in the arts. Specialist arts teachers can enhance the instructional effectiveness of teacher-candidates by introducing current classroom teaching strategies, concrete activities, up-to-date resources and classroom management techniques. The confidence of beginning teachers to teach the arts can be promoted by observing colleagues, engaging in team learning activities, and obtaining peer feedback. The use of integrated arts theory and a focus on practical applications of concepts, coupled with reflective discussion, can also be seen to promote conceptual understanding. A further recommendation involves expanding the role of the arts in teacher education to foster cultural diversity.

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Japanese martial arts, here after Japanese budō, are popular cultural icons that are found in films, comics, video games and books. Teaching Japanese budō at university offers a novel way to teach about East Asian and in particular Japanese culture, history, and philosophy while including ideas about the globalization and the localization of culture. Question though remains as to how and what should we teach about the popular culture of Japanese budō at the university level? This paper found that a comprehensive approach to teaching about budō was effective. By using many kinds of materials and the incorporation of opportunities to experience budō and to try budō, students were better able to grasp the historical, cultural and religious characteristics of budō.

  15. Art Museums: an emergence stage for the art education research and innovation

    OpenAIRE

    2009-01-01

    Art Education is finding in Art Museums a stage for research and educational innovation which has held a great emergency in the last decade. We propose a tour that departs from the rethinking of the contents of a museum (collections, objects, ideas, facts, events, experiences), to approach the contents of education in the museums, analyzing some examples in which different didactic strategies are used for the education of conceptual, procedural and attitudinal contents. Finally, we think abo...

  16. Art, anatomy, and medicine: Is there a place for art in medical education?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bell, Lawrence T O; Evans, Darrell J R

    2014-01-01

    For many years art, anatomy and medicine have shared a close relationship, as demonstrated by Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings and Andreas Vesalius' groundbreaking illustrated anatomical textbook from the 16th century. However, in the modern day, can art truly play an important role in medical education? Studies have suggested that art can be utilized to teach observational skills in medical students, a skill that is integral to patient examination but seldom taught directly within medical curricula. This article is a subjective survey that evaluates a student selected component (SSC) that explored the uses of art in medicine and investigates student perception on the relationship between the two. It also investigates whether these medical students believe that art can play a role in medical education, and more specifically whether analyzing art can play a role in developing observational skills in clinicians. An "Art in Medicine" 8-week course was delivered to first year medical students at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. The use of art to improve observational skills was a core theme throughout. Feedback from the students suggests that they believe a strong association between art and medicine exists. It also showed a strong perception that art could play a role in medical education, and more specifically through analyzing art to positively develop clinical observational skills. The results of this subjective study, together with those from research from elsewhere, suggest that an art-based approach to teaching observational skills may be worth serious consideration for inclusion in medical and other healthcare curricula.

    2010-04-01

    A graduate course on cultural diversity, based in constructivist theory and structured on the Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services model, was developed and taught through classroom and online methods. The following research questions were explored: 1) Can an educational experience, built on constructivist learning theory tenets, change students' perceptions, attitudes, knowledge, and skills in the area of cultural competence? 2) Does the delivery method, online or traditional classroom, influence the degree of change? The study used a quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest control group design using the Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence Among healthcare Professionals Revised. Findings showed significant changes (p<0.001) in cultural competence scores and subscores for all learners with both teaching modalities based on interval scale and in categories of cultural knowledge, skills, desire, and overall competence based on a nominal scale. The untaught construct of cultural desire showed the most significant improvement.

    Full Text Available Using the metaphor of mapping as an overarching metaphor, this article presents an amalgamated version of the first five years of Big Gay Church, an annual session at the National Art Education Association’s convention since 2009. Big Gay Church is a collaborative small group of queer art educators and allies coming together to explore the intersections of religion, education, the arts, culture, and LGBTQ identities. By using tools and constructs from dramatic inquiry and other performance pedagogies, as well as inviting attendees to fully participate as members of the congregation, we transform this conference session into an opportunity for scholarship, action, connection, and fellowship. Such arts-based academic interventions can provoke a re-imagining of ways forward, together, in education and research.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available La apertura espacial y temporal del mundo lleva a la emergencia de nuevos territorios para las obras de arte. La aceleración del tiempo termina en la paradoja de un capricho radical de ciertas obras de arte contemporáneo a inscribirse en la larga duración del patrimonio, o incluso en la expansión del arte a espacios territorializados y/o ubicuos mientras abandonan su lugar institucional. En este contexto, asistimos a una multiplicación de nuevos espacios abiertos a la mediación cultural. Convendría ver, en estos desarrollos, una respuesta —fundamentada en una mediación técnica ubicua— a las necesidades de participación de individuos y comunidades en la creación de formas simbólicas de las que han sido alejados por las industrias culturales. Sin embargo, este fenómeno parece establecer una relación entre la “numerización” del arte numérico o digital y la “estetización” de la comunicación, entre la comunicación y la comunicabilidad (sensus communis, que puede llevarnos a una nueva aproximación a la mediación cultural. Intentar identificar estos espacios de encuentro entre la estética y las ciencias de la comunicación permitiría ahondar en el triple interrogante de la creación y la recepción de las obras de arte, pero, también, de su transmisión y conservación en el contexto de una cultura de la comunicación globalizada.

    Full Text Available In the early decades of the 20th century, the reflection about the deyatel’ kul’tury is one of the most important chapters of the russian philosophy: the conception of space and time proposed by Pavel A. Florenskij – as his result in the teatrise Analiz prostranstvennosti i vremeni – is a relevant part of it. Science, philosophy and art find their roots in life, and the study of the space is the start to understand themselves. Deyatel’ kul’tury, according Florenskij, does culture: he assumes the task of planting border’s poles, outlining the shortest paths through a system of isopotential lines. Through references to the debate between Symbolists, in the Analiz we can read in a new way the origin of sculpture, theatre, cinema, paint, poetry: the organization of the space can reach man’s consciousness, but the space already exists, as exists the life itself in which the art has its roots.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Siobhán Dowling LONG

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available The debate relating to the place and value of the arts in Irish Education is one that has dominated educational policy, provision, and practice down through the history of Irish educational policy from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Indeed, interest in this topic has been re-ignited with the recent publication of two educational policy documents, one based on the arts-in-education in and out of school The Arts in Education Charter (2013, and the other on the development of children and young people’s literacy and numeracy Literacy and Numeracy For Learning and Life: The National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy among Children and Young People 2011––2020 (2011. Despite the Irish Government’s commitments to promote the arts in and out of school, this paper draws attention to the lack of any real investment in the Arts in Education Charter by the Irish Government, and the neglect of policymakers to include references to national and international educational research on the value of the arts for enhancing children’s life-long learning. Noting the pressures on primary teachers to allocate more time to the Literacy and Numeracy Strategy, it highlights the potential threat of this initiative to the primary school arts education programme. Finally, it draws attention to the notable absence of an arts education programme for the majority of senior post-primary pupils who leave school without any in-depth knowledge and appreciation of their rich cultural heritage. This is an area of grave concern, and one that has received very little, if any, attention to date.

    High hopes are invested in a rapid institutionalisation of an enterprise culture in Higher Education. This has heightened the importance of entrepreneurship education (EE) in most Western societies; however, how values and beliefs about entrepreneurship are institutionalised in EE remains...... prevalent in EE. We argue for greater appreciation of reflexive practices to challenge normative promotions of beliefs and values that compare with forms of evangelising, detrimental to objectives of Higher Education. Consequently, we call for a more critical pedagogy to counteract a ‘cultification...

  4. Latino culture and sex education.

    Medina, C

    1987-01-01

    This article points out important facets of Latino culture to which family life educators must be sensitive. If a family life education program is to prove successful for any Latino community, it must be bilingual. Approximately 85% of all Latinos are Catholic. Latinos are not accustomed to extensive support from the world outside the family; the cultural pattern is to rely on support from the extended family. Latino parents are especially concerned that differing sexual mores, values, and customs will corrupt their children; they place high value on the ideal of cultural preservation. The macho concept of the exaggerated importance of being male is inculcated in a male child from a very early age. Girls are constantly reminded of their inferiority and weakness and usually praised for their docility, submissiveness, and attractiveness. Marianismo, the submissive and obedient female character, pervades the traditional role of wife bestowed upon the Latina. Male and female homosexuality is not looked on favorably in the Latino community. Latinos generally employ a certain degree of formality when dealing with outsiders, professionals, and community leaders. Fatalismo, or fatalism, is particularly to blame for Latinos' apparent deference to others and yielding to authorities. Once these basic cultural characteristics are understood, health care providers can pick up on the forces operating to modify this traditional outline, such as social class, education, socioeconomic status, country of orgin, religiosity, the changing role of women, and the impact of the media, as well as the potential benefical impact of family life education programs.

  12. Astronomy, Visual Literacy, and Liberal Arts Education

    Crider, Anthony

    2016-01-01

    With the exponentially growing amount of visual content that twenty-first century students will face throughout their lives, teaching them to respond to it with visual and information literacy skills should be a clear priority for liberal arts education. While visual literacy is more commonly covered within humanities curricula, I will argue that because astronomy is inherently a visual science, it is a fertile academic discipline for the teaching and learning of visual literacy. Astronomers, like many scientists, rely on three basic types of visuals to convey information: images, qualitative diagrams, and quantitative plots. In this talk, I will highlight classroom methods that can be used to teach students to "read" and "write" these three separate visuals. Examples of "reading" exercises include questioning the authorship and veracity of images, confronting the distorted scales of many diagrams published in astronomy textbooks, and extracting quantitative information from published plots. Examples of "writing" exercises include capturing astronomical images with smartphones, re-sketching textbook diagrams on whiteboards, and plotting data with Google Motion Charts or iPython notebooks. Students can be further pushed to synthesize these skills with end-of-semester slide presentations that incorporate relevant images, diagrams, and plots rather than relying solely on bulleted lists.

Given the current socio-cultural situation, it has been noted that a teacher who developed his/her aesthetic culture can make a direct contribution to the social and cultural challenges of a changing world. Based on the study of scientific and pedagogical literature, normative and legal support and the content of practical courses, the author has revealed the peculiarities of forming future specialists’ aesthetic culture in foreign countries (Japan, Germany, Canada, the United States, England. Special attention has been paid to the aesthetic potential of fine arts in forming future teachers’ aesthetic culture, which ensures the harmony of intellectual and aesthetic development of personality, enriches the emotional and sensual sphere, develops cognitive and creative activities, aesthetic needs and tastes, stipulates for future teachers’ involving in the process of artistic and aesthetic culture of the nation.

  20. The influence of art education on jewelry design

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bayburtlu Çimen

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Principally, theory and practice should be in harmony. In Jewelry Design Programmes, the knowledge of light, colour and design should be thought on basis of theories and causations besides visuality and practice. The education of design provides the students an independent aspect and encourages researching and questioning when supported by theoretical knowledge as art history, aesthetics, sociology of art, arts policy and analyzation of works of arts. The fundamental thing in art education is an accurate definition of art and a correct specification of coordinates of art education in accordance with this definition. If universal art coordinates are not included in Jewelry Design Education’s scope, it is possible to train craftsmen but not artists. It is a recognized truth that if a work of art has gained a universal value and protected it in time, then it is likely to talk about an artist and artistic values. Unique art works have their own creation laws and prove themselves in time.

    Professional nursing defines its foundation of practice as embedded in the sciences and humanities of a liberal education. This liberal education is commonly alluded to with the phrase "the art and science of nursing." Yet how do we as nursing educators integrate these two concepts? This article describes a method of integrating the humanities as part of an innovative clinical experience. A defined visual art experience was used to improve professional nursing students' observational and communication skills, narrative sequencing abilities, and empathy. The nursing and medical literature describing the use of visual art encounters in health care education is reviewed. The incorporation of an art education program into the curriculum of a cohort of accelerated baccalaureate nursing students is described. Qualitative evaluation measures from the students suggest this was an experience that broadened their understanding of patient encounters.

  18. Art Museums: an emergence stage for the art education research and innovation

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available Art Education is finding in Art Museums a stage for research and educational innovation which has held a great emergency in the last decade. We propose a tour that departs from the rethinking of the contents of a museum (collections, objects, ideas, facts, events, experiences, to approach the contents of education in the museums, analyzing some examples in which different didactic strategies are used for the education of conceptual, procedural and attitudinal contents. Finally, we think about the work of the museum educator, approaching the concept of "author's didactics" and the need of a conscience and premeditation on the part of the educator of museum with regard to the educational designs, their applications, results and processes.

  20. Creativity in art and science: are there two cultures?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Andreasen, Nancy C; Ramchandran, Kanchna

    2012-03-01

    The study of creativity is characterized by a variety of key questions, such as the nature of the creative process, whether there are multiple types of creativity, the relationship between high levels of creativity ("Big C") and everyday creativity ("little c"), and the neural basis of creativity. Herein we examine the question of the relationship between creativity in the arts and the sciences, and use functional magnetic resonance imaging to explore the neural basis of creativity in a group of "Big C" individuals from both domains using a word association protocol. The findings give no support for the notion that the artists and scientists represent "two cultures. " Rather, they suggest that very gifted artists and scientists have association cortices that respond in similar ways. Both groups display a preponderance of activation in brain circuits involved in higher-order socioaffective processing and Random Episodic Silent Thought /the default mode.

    Full Text Available L’article s’interroge sur la spécificité du terrain en sociologie des arts et de la culture. Il s’agit de montrer que la sur-valorisation sociale de ces activités a des conséquences sur les rapports entre chercheurs et acteurs ou consommateurs d’art et de culture. Activités de distinction sociale, elles provoquent autant de sur-déclaration que de sous-déclaration. Du coté des acteurs, l’intégration de certains discours sociologiques sur les arts fait que les entretiens sont biaisés par une sorte d’hyper-correction savante ; du côté des consommateurs, l’intégration des codes sociaux de distinction, notamment liés à l’école, mais aussi aux médias dominants, impose une échelle de valeur qui écrase certaines pratiques et en souligne d’autres. L’article s’appuie sur quelques exemples d’enquêtes auprès des artistes, comme des consommateurs, pour illustrer cette question.Field specificities for sociology of the arts and cultureIn this article, the author examines the specificities of field studies with regards to the sociology of the arts and culture. It is argued that the over-valorisation of these activities has consequences on the relations between researchers and actors or consumers of art and culture. Constituting activities of social distinction, such activities provoke as many over-declarations as under-declarations. With regards to the actors, the integration of certain sociological views on the arts and culture means that interviews are biased by a sort of scholarly hyper-correction; as for the consummators, the integration of social distinction codes, linked in particular to education but also to dominant expressions, imposes a value scale which crushes certain practices and underlines others. The article uses examples of studies undertaken with artists as well as with consummators to illustrate the argument.La especificidad del espacio propio de la sociología del arte y de la culturaEl autor

    High hopes are invested in a rapid institutionalisation of an enterprise culture in Higher Education. This has heightened the importance of entrepreneurship education (EE) in most Western societies; however, how values and beliefs about entrepreneurship are institutionalised in EE remains...... prevalent in EE. We argue for greater appreciation of reflexive practices to challenge normative promotions of beliefs and values that compare with forms of evangelising, detrimental to objectives of Higher Education. Consequently, we call for a more critical pedagogy to counteract a ‘cultification...... relatively unchallenged. This study applies the lens of the cult, in particular three elements Rituals, Deities and the Promise of Salvation, to reflect on the production and reproduction of entrepreneurship in EE.

    2007-01-01

    Exploring the expressive arts within nursing education promotes understanding of what it means to be human and allows students to communicate with patients in unique and meaningful ways. "Arts in Healing," a three-credit elective course designed to provide experiences in creating and appreciating different art forms and to illuminate the healing elements in each, was offered in both the graduate and undergraduate nursing programs. Students at all levels, including pre-nursing, participated together. The article provides a course description and objectives and discusses implications for nurse educators. Examples of how nurses integrated what they learned from the course into their own practice are provided.

  6. Educating the public, defending the art: language use and medical education in Hippocrates' The Art.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rademaker, Adriaan

    2010-01-01

    The Hippocratic treatise The Art is an epideictic speech in defence of medicine against certain unnamed detractors. The author of The Art is fully aware of the fact that for him, language (as opposed to, say, a live demonstration) is the medium of education. Accordingly, the author shows full command of the main issues of the late fifth century 'sophistic' debate on the nature and the correct and effective use of language. In his views on language, the author seems to adopt a quite positivistic stance. For him, words reflect our perception and interpretation of the visual appearances or eidea of the things that are, and these appearances prove the existence of things in nature. To this extent, language reflects reality, provided that we language users have the expertise to form correct interpretations of what we observe. At the same time, language remains a secondary phenomenon: it is not a 'growth' of nature, but a set of conventional signs that have a basis in reality only if they are applied correctly. There is always the possibility of incorrect interpretation of our perceptions, which will lead to an incorrect use of language that does not reflect real phenomena. Words remain conventional expressions, and not all words can be expected to reflect the truth. In fact, the unnamed detractors of the art are victim to many such incorrect interpretations. Consistent with his view of language as secondary to visual phenomena, the author claims in his peroration that as a medium for the defence of medicine, the spoken word is generally considered less effective than live demonstrations. This modesty, while undoubtedly effective as a means to catch the sympathy of his public, still seems slightly overstated. Our author is fully aware of the powers and limitations of his medium, and shows great sophistication in its use.

    The art ideal is usually understood as an exemplary art that stands out in a formalist conception of the history of art, or as the art that matches the programmatic conception of a normative aesthetics. Hegel’s conception is different in that it makes no emphatic command for ideal conditions of art or for it. Instead, and according to his notion of the ideal, which is none other than the idea of the true in history and its realities, the art ideal is art itself accomplishing this task of real...

    Populations that are underrepresented in physics generally are even more severely underrepresented among US physics teachers. Based on national data from the American Institute of Physics (AIP), 95% of physics teachers are White/non-Hispanic, about 1.5% are Hispanic, and approximately another 1.5% African-American. While 25% of our nation's African-American and Hispanic students now take physics in high school, they are very unlikely to have a role model, of similar race and ethnicity, teaching their physics classes. PhysTEC is making an effort to find and disseminate successful models for attracting more underrepresented minority students to high school physics teaching. This panel discussion, focusing on cultural perspectives on teacher education, will feature faculty from Minority Serving Institutions, which educate almost 60% of underrepresented minorities who get college degrees in the US, and individuals who have taught high school physics in areas with a dense minority population.

    Trevarthen, Colwyn; Gratier, Maya; Osborne, Nigel

    Human cultures educate children with different strategies. Ancient hunter-gatherers 200,000 years ago, with bodies and brains like our own, in bands of a hundred well-known individuals or less, depended on spontaneous cooperative practice of knowledge and skills in a natural world. Before creating language, they appreciated beautiful objects and music. Anthropologists observe that similar living cultures accept that children learn in playful 'intent participation'. Large modern industrial states with millions of citizens competing in a global economy aim to instruct young people in scientific concepts and the rules of literacy and numeracy deemed important for employment with elaborate machines. Our psychobiological theories commonly assume that an infant starts with a body needing care and emotional regulation and a mind that assimilates concepts of objects by sensorimotor action and requires school instruction in rational principles after several years of cognitive development. Evidence from archeology and evolutionary anthropology indicates that Homo sapiens are born with an imaginative and convivial brain ready for the pleasure of shared invention and with a natural sense of beauty in handmade objects and music. In short, there are innate predispositions for culture for practicing meaningful habits and artful performances that are playfully inventive and seductive for companionship in traditions, and soon capable of grasping the clever purpose of shared tasks and tools. This knowledge of inventive human nature with esthetic and moral sensibilities has important implications for educational policy in our schools.

  17. Art as a scaffolding teaching strategy in baccalaureate nursing education.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hydo, Sharon K; Marcyjanik, Diane L; Zorn, CeCelia R; Hooper, Nicole M

    2007-01-01

    Although the use of art in nursing education is well highlighted, most of the literature is anecdotal or focuses on development of a reflective nursing practice with clients. In this study, art was used as a scaffold to infuse liberal nursing education by helping baccalaureate nursing students (n = 91) create a personal expression of nursing and move toward greater self-awareness. Scaffolding is a metaphor for supporting learners as they develop higher levels of thinking. Using naturalistic inquiry to analyze students' written responses in a course activity, four themes emerged from the data: art and creativity, teamwork, boundaries and horizons within self, and boundaries and horizons in the profession. Student's individual expressions of art served as the "calling forth" of processes that opened the door to each student's personal expression.

  1. The cancer journey: bridging art therapy and museum education.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Deane, K; Carman, M; Fitch, M

    2000-01-01

    This paper describes the application of art therapy in assisting cancer patients to visually express their cancer experience on several levels--physically, psychosocially, and spiritually. The art therapy/museum education program was developed in 1996 at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in partnership with Toronto-Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre-Bayview Support Network. To date, the program has run for three rounds with 16 sessions in each round. The facilitator for all three rounds was a trained art therapist. The program provided an unique opportunity for an arts institution to serve the community at large by offering an artistic outlet in a peaceful, rural setting in contrast to a sterile hospital environment. The specific goals of the program and the general therapeutic benefits of art therapy are described. In addition, the effectiveness of an existential/phenomenological approach in not only serving the cancer population, but also bridging the two diverse disciplines--art therapy and museum education--is explored. It is suggested that an existential therapeutic approach promotes the confrontation and acceptance of death that is necessary in order to lead a more meaningful life. Moreover, a phenomenological approach promotes the act of "seeing" as an essential ingredient in gaining objectivity and bringing unconscious thoughts into consciousness. The importance of social and emotional support in the way of art therapy in addition to medical care is emphasized. Through art therapy, cancer patients are encouraged to discover ways to face pain and misfortune and be creative in their "art of living."

    2011-01-01

    Improving health care providers' knowledge and ability to provide culturally competent care can limit the health disparities experienced by disadvantaged populations. As racial and ethnic cultures dominate cultural competency topics in education, alternative cultures such as disability have consistently been underrepresented. This article will make the case that persons with disabilities have a unique cultural identity, and should be addressed as an important component of cultural competency education in pharmacy schools. Examples of efforts in pharmacy education to incorporate cultural competency components are highlighted, many of which contain little or no mention of disability issues. Based on initiatives from other health professions, suggestions and considerations for the development of disability education within pharmacy curricula also are proposed. PMID:21519416

    2014-09-01

    Cancer, considered a rare disease among Alaska Native people as recently as the 1950s, surpassed heart disease in the 1990s to become the leading cause of mortality. In response to Alaska's village-based Community Health Workers' (CHWs) desire to learn more about cancer for themselves and the people in their communities, cancer education that incorporated the expressive arts of moving, drawing, and sculpting was developed, implemented, and evaluated. Arts-based education integrates the dynamic wisdom and experiences of Alaska Native people and western medical knowledge to share cancer information in a culturally respectful way. Between May 2009 and March 2013, 12 5-day courses that included arts activities to support cancer information were provided for 118 CHWs in Anchorage, AK, USA. A post-course internet survey was conducted in April 2013, to learn how arts-based cancer education affected participants' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. Surveys were completed by 54 of the 96 course participants; 22 course participants were lost to follow-up. As a result of integrating the arts with cancer education, respondents reported an increase in their cancer knowledge and comfort with talking about cancer. Additionally, 82 % (44) of respondents described feeling differently about cancer. By integrating the arts with cancer information, participants reported healthy behavior changes for themselves (76 %), with their families (70 %), and in their work (72 %). The expressive arts of moving, drawing, and sculpting provided a creative pathway for diverse adult learners in Alaska to increase their cancer knowledge, comfort with talking about cancer, and wellness behaviors.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper interrogates Yoruba verbal arts and situates culture as a catalyst for development. It is suggested that the intricate resources of oral art, exemplified by Yoruba textual references, are viable ingredients for socio-cultural empowerment. To fully comprehend the dynamics of a society in constant change due to external and internal realities, one must reconsider culture in order to reposition the society. The multidimensional and multidisciplinary significance of Yoruba verbal art demonstrate that culture has a vital role to play in any meaningful socio-political advancement in the Nigerian body polity. The ideas conveyed in proverbial expressions, representing key cultural realities of the Yoruba people, offer insights and ideas for development and social good. The paper submits that a deeper exploration of the intricate resources of verbal art is a viable route to development.

    It is claimed that from the sixties onwards the educational system has contributed to the erosion of the institutionalized character of fine arts. In line with a worldwide trend towards more student-centred curricula—some authors argue that the exclusive focus on high culture in school curricula has dwindled. However, empirical research to substantiate these claims is scarce. We focus on secondary education in Flanders to study the centrality of high culture in the educational system: can we ...

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to discuss the subject as well as the problem of corporeality and spirituality in the anthropology of martial arts. The authors attempt to show the vision of a new psychophysical education on the way of martial arts and the taking of personal patterns here. Analysies are made in the perspective of the holistic pedagogy and humanistic theory of martial arts.Qualitative methods, such as studying literature, direct interview and long-term participant observation were used. The authors wish to begin with the concept of corporeality as it is found in the available literature on the subject.The first author has been active in an environment of martial arts for over 30 years. Interviews and discussions were conducted with 9 martial arts masters of the highest rank.Results and conclusions. Psychophysical system of self-realization is an educational programme – a way which relates to spiritual development through physical and mental exercise, according to teaching by a particular master-teacher. Within the context of martial arts being used as a psycho-educational form of education, the body fulfills, above all, the role of a tool to be used on the way towards enlightenment and wisdom. It is utilized specifically in spiritual progress. Improving one’s physical abilities is therefore an ascetic journey of physical perfectionism and technical accomplishment all towards achieving spiritual mastery. In some cases, spiritual development is described in terms of energy (qi, ki and connected with the capacity of one’s health.Traditional understanding of martial arts is often mixed with combat sports or systems of meditation are numbered among movement forms. The opportunity to avoid similar mistakes is to adopt a theoretical perspective of the anthropology of psychophysical progress. Paradigm of systematic approach and integral outlook on the human allow for understanding of the sense of being involved in ascetic and

    This study uses an art-and-science comparative lens to understand the science culture, particularly the public engagement with science museums. A representational Taiwanese sample of 1863 subjects was categorized into "four cultures," who visit science only, art only, neither, or both museums, resulting in six multivariate logistic regression models. Knowledge of science, interests in scientific and social issues, and socio-demographic variables were considered in the models. Adults with children and males prefer science museums, females prefer art museums, and the young and urban intellects show no strong preference, appearing to be open to both science and art museums. The findings show the complex decisions the public make in visiting museums. It is no longer a strictly science or art decision, as framed by Snow's "The Two Cultures" argument; rather, the possibility of visiting both museums has emerged, a phenomenon we describe as cognitive polyphasia.

    I begin by arguing that East Asia is different from the West in many aspects and that the main contributing factor is societal culture. Only recently have scholars in the field of educational administration begun to pay attention to societal culture as a theoretical construct for the analysis of educational theories. The emerging theme of moral leadership that Sergiovanni, Green-field, and others in the West discuss is consonant with a long intellectual tradition in CHinese culture. The Chine...

    Full Text Available This paper focuses the short life of the Culture and Art Channel, a TV company created and supported by the Ministry of Culture in Brazil. The search for a perfect knowledge of how this public channel should be took it to the poor context of the cultural politics proposed by the administration of the former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso. The way the strategies of implementation and the answers to the critics were conducted also facilitated its failure. As a result, the television company did not have good indices of audience and its activities were closed down less than 2 years after its first broadcasting. Keywords: Culture and Arte channel network; public TV; cultural politics; Fernando Henrique Cardoso Administration; media and power. Este artigo tem como objetivo focar a curta trajetória de vida da TV Cultura e Arte, emissora criada e patrocinada pelo Ministério da Cultura do Brasil. A busca do entendimento do caminho tomada por esse canal público levou a situá-lo no contexto da precária política cultural adotada pela administração FHC e também das estratégias de legitimação da iniciativa e das respostas oferecidas aos críticos pelos idealizadores e responsáveis pelo funcionamento da TV Cultura e Arte. Resultado de tudo isso, a emissora contou com pouca audiência, encerrando suas atividades menos de dois anos depois de ter sido colocada no ar. Palavras-chave: TV Cultura e Arte. TV pública. Política cultural. Governo FHC. Mídia e poder.

    Full Text Available Artists have used the environment as a subject forever and there is a long history of artists whose works affect peoples’ awareness of and perceptions of their natural environments. But only relatively recently have other artists become part of the modern environmental movement and of efforts to educate college students and the population at large about environmental issues. Environmental studies programs need to take advantage of this increased interest on the part of artists, and global warming provides a perfect vehicle.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo se propone aportar al tema de la formación de educadores con la convicción de que representa un potente derrotero en la cualificación de la enseñanza; aspecto que cobra relevancia en un área como la educación artística que suele considerarse como intrascendente. Por tanto, se exponen las comprensiones logradas a propósito de la formación docente en artes visuales hoy, desde tres visitas de campo a universidades con programas de licenciatura en artes visuales del país, en el contexto del proyecto de investigación, financiado por el CIUP-UPN: “Fundamentos conceptuales y metodológicos del Proyecto Curricular de la Licenciatura en Artes Visuales de la UPN. Relaciones con el debate actual de la pedagogía en artes visuales y la formación de los licenciados”. Este estudio de corte cualitativo contempló como uno de sus objetivos el reconocimiento de los programas pares, sobre lo cual se ofrecen las reflexiones aquí desarrolladas, consideradas como apuestas comunes que aportan, en gran medida, a las construcciones en y para la educación artística hoy en Colombia, por tanto susceptibles de leerse como panorama, problematización e invitación.
