Emerging Faculty & Scholars

Presented by Elizabeth Hallmark

The Faculty Colloquium typically focuses on the scholarship of the current faculty. Warner has a wonderful cadre of doctoral students who have recently defended and are ready to launch careers in the academe. This colloquium spotlights one of our students , Liz Hallmark, who will present an overview of her dissertation Arts as Collaborative Inquiry: Re-Defining and Re-Centering Quality Arts Practice in Schools. Much current interest is on inquiry-based teaching in science, technology, engineering, and math, overlooking arts inquiry. Her study focused on teachers’ perspectives about inquiry pedagogy, traced how cross-curricular connections between the arts and non-arts developed, and identified operational structures that supported one school’s community of practice. Through grounded theory she built a framework that conceptualizes an expanded academic role for arts in schools.
