The ArtEZ Expertise Centre for Art Education forms a unique department within ArtEZ Institute of the Arts. We provide education in the form of a shared interfaculty program for the teacher education programmes and the master of education in art. They also provide minors for the non-teacher education programmes at ArtEZ. Interdisciplinary or discipline-transcending cooperation .
Apart from education there is also a research programme within the Expertise centre where research is carried out by researchers from within and outside of ArtEZ, sometimes in cooperation with the master students. Next to short term projects the two research streams of ‘talent development’ and ‘interdisciplinary cooperation’ are the most significant within this research programme.
A third focus of attention of the Expertise Centre is indicated by the term ‘connectivity’. Under this umbrella they make contact with internal and external networks with the purpose of spreading knowledge, valorisation, development training for professionals in, through and for the field of art education.
