Elliot Eisner SIG 177
SIG Purpose

The purposes of the Elliot Eisner SIG are to:

  • promote scholarship that applies, extends, critiques, and reinvents Eisner's scholarly contributions and core principles towards the overarching aim of school improvement
  • act as a catalyst for the development, implementation, and evaluation of curriculum built upon the foundation that Eisner established
  • provide the opportunity to continue conceptualizing and improving educational criticism and connoisseurship in contemporary educational settings
  • encourage new forms of evaluation based on Eisner's ideas
  • examine ways to conceptualize education (formal and informal) from arts-based perspectives
  • foster discourse that challenges, champions, and reconceptualizes Eisnerian thought
  • mentor emerging scholars of curriculum, school evaluation, qualitative research, the arts, and school reform

“The ultimate aim of education is to enable individuals to become the architects of their own education and through that process to continually reinvent themselves.”
