New Faculty Publication: Advancing the Art of Teaching
Dr. Karin Tollefson-Hall, Art Education faculty member and our Director of Graduate Studies for Art Education, has just published her new critical overview for teachers on how to conceptualize and implement education research projects in the classroom. Tollefson-Hall’s essay, "Conducting Case Study Research," appears in the National Art Education Association’s latest volume: “Practice Theory: Seeing the Power of Art Teacher Researchers” (2014.) This Fall at JMU Tollefson-Hall will incorporate her new scholarship findings into undergraduate teaching on elementary and secondary art methods and in graduate research.
She is a researcher who has been long concerned with the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, including in her service as Madison Teaching Fellow (2012-2014) focused on "Technology and Deep Learning," a student experience that extends beyond the classroom into lifelong learning. For her excellence in teaching, Tollefson-Hall has been nominated this Summer 2014 for the Distinguished Teaching Award in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
