Professional Development in Art Museums: Strategies of Engagement Through Contemporary Art explores the research and practice of professional development for preK-12 teachers in art museums, with emphasis on curricular possibilities, conceptual considerations, historical precedents, learner-centered teaching, critical teaching strategies, and communities of practice. Three sections fill this book with examples, strategies, and possibilities for educators interested in enriching teaching and learning in conversation with the art and issues of our times.
In this innovative anthology, co-editors Dana Carlisle Kletchka and B. Stephen Carpenter, II have compiled translations and examinations of theory and practice at the intersection of collaborative professional development, art museums, and contemporary art. To this end, a diverse group of art educators and art museum educators add to a growing body of knowledge about the purposeful reflections and dialogues, inspiring curricula, and innovative pedagogies that inform professional development experiences in art museum contexts.
