At the graduate level, the MAT Art Education program offers a rotating series of advanced seminars in education, designed to apply theory and practice to the most timely issues emerging in the field as they relate changing trends in art pedagogy in particular. This special topics course will bring together two areas of recent curricular expansion in order to focus specifically on the potential for the visual arts to provide a framework for important areas of attitudinal education: 1) cultural understanding among diverse local communities and across the globe, and 2) personal development in terms of ethics, decision-making, and participation in civil society. This course will be divided between a systematic review of strong examples of materials available to educators, their similarities and differences, and weekly sessions devoted to the creation on cutting-edge lesson units by student teams.
