Mission of Teaching is the second to last course in AOEU’s Master of Arts in Art Education degree program. The course is designed to help reignite your passion for art education.
While enrolled in Mission of Teaching, students will explore philosophical perspectives and research methods within the field of education and in art education specifically. You will explore current issues in art education and relate those to your own mission/vision of teaching. Students will also examine teacher leadership and mentorship qualities, reflecting and creating specific action plans and success maps to implement in the classroom to advocate, lead, and educate with confidence.
