RESPONSIBILITY, NOT ACCOUNTABILITY: The Experiential Artistry of Teaching

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


If education is going to live up to its profession, it must be seen as a work of art which requires the same qualities of personal enthusiasm and imagination as are required by the musician, painter or artist. Each one of these artists needs a technique which is more or less mechanical, but in the degree to which he [sic] loses his personal vision to become subordinate to the formal rules of the technique he falls below the level and grade of the artist. He becomes reduced again to the level of the artisan who follows the blue prints, drawings, and plans that are made by other people.
