Elliot Eisner_WEB

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
