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.
