Paris CWG 2018

CWG Meetings in Cumulus Paris Conference

Within Cumulus network there are a lot of expertise in art and design pedagogy. Many schools organize also an art and design teacher education degree programme or special courses and study modules of art and design pedagogy.

We are interested in aggregating this expertise within Cumulus and push forward the CWG of Art and Design Teacher education and Pedagogy. We invite anyone interested in the theme to join the group.

In Cumulus Paris program we have two timeslots for our CWG meetings, which will include some presentations of case studies as well as discussion and/or team work to co-create ideas for the future activities and steps in our CWG – e.g. relevant and enriching issues and inspiring working methods, and how to coordinate meetings around Cumulus conferences and to empower our network.

Chairs: Martti Raevaara, Aalto University & Andreas Kohli, ZHdK
