The arts and the creation of mind by Elliot W Eisner( )

35 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the arts are often thought to be closer to the rim of education than to its core, they are critically important means for developing complex and subtle aspects of the mind, argues Elliot Eisner. In this book he describes how various forms of thinking are evoked, developed, and refined through the arts. These forms of thinking are more helpful in dealing with the ambiguities and uncertainties of daily life than are the formally structured curricula that are employed today in schools. Offering a rich array of examples, Eisner describes different approaches to the teaching of the arts and the virtues each possesses when well taught. He discusses especially nettlesome issues pertaining to the evaluation of performance in the arts. Eisner provides a fresh and admittedly iconoclastic perspective on what the arts can contribute to education, namely a new vision of both its aims and its means. This new perspective, Eisner argues, is especially important today, a time at which mechanistic forms of technical rationality often dominate our thinking about the conduct and assessment of education

The enlightened eye : qualitative inquiry and the enhancement of educational practice by Elliot W Eisner( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an important new resource in qualitative research methods and educational research. This benchmark work gives readers a solid understanding of qualitative research and evaluation, and its great promise for evaluating and guiding educational practice. It demonstrates how the same methods used by critics in the arts and humanities, such as observing performance qualities, setting, and interaction patterns, also applies to the classroom practice. Excellent examples are provided to show what this type of research looks like, and how it can be applied to the evaluation of teaching, learning, and the overall school environment

Qualitative inquiry in education : the continuing debate( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book scholars address critical issues in qualitative inquiry. For each issue two papers are presented, followed by a commentary and usually a response from one of the paper presenters. Thus, this volume provides a picture of the current debate as it unfolds among some of the nation's leading educational scholars. An introduction by editors Eisner and Peshkin traces the development of the contemporary interest in qualitative inquiry from the period when such work was considered problematic. Now the commitment to qualitative research by a host of distinguished scholars testifies to its "rooting in American academic life". As the editors emphasize, this book's exploration of issues in qualitative inquiry is intended not to offer "the last word" but "to extend the dialogue on matters of consequence to those who are committed not only to qualitative research but also to research of quality."
