Calls For Papers: Art History Pedagogy and Practice

Calls For Papers: Art History Pedagogy and Practice

The founding of the journal Art History Pedagogy and Practice represents a quantum leap forward for art history into the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Yet art historians are still becoming aware of SoTL’s practices and how to develop systematic, evidence-based investigations of classroom practices.

The purpose of this special issue is both to model an array of SoTL methodologies and to facilitate an increase in SoTL-AH practitioners. With an exemplary sample of approaches, the issue will demonstrate SoTL’s potential in our field. To stimulate emulation and further research, each study will be preceded by a short summary of the paper’s methodology written in accessible language by a SoTL or educational research specialist.
