Aesthetic Inquiry of Curriculum in Taiwan: Issues and Problems
Aesthetic inquiry of curriculum (or curriculum aesthetics) has become the focus of educational research in Taiwan for recent years, and the research achievement is significant. According to the collected papers, the author divided the related research into four categories:
- To inquire into the phenomenon of curriculum and teaching by connoisseurship and criticism that Eisner proposed;
- To explore the features of aesthetic experience in teaching and learning, and the ways of practice;
- To explore the artistry of teaching based on the supposition of “teacher as artist” ;
- To inquire into the effect of teaching based on the framework of art education.
Keywords: curriculum aesthetics; aesthetic experience; artistry of teaching; aesthetic inquiry
