Teach­ing method­ol­o­gy, re­search-​based:

think­ing about the re­search ap­pren­tice­ship

The research apprenticeship serves the lecturers Michèle Novak and Anna Schürch as a means to introduce a format of research-oriented teaching and learning on a Master’s level at the Zurich University of the Arts (MA Art Education, specialisation Teaching & Learning). Based on reflections from their experiences as lecturers, the authors show that a research approach offers opportunities for trainee teachers in the visual arts to examine general teaching frameworks, and how it can do justice to the complexity of classroom situations. Their findings underline the significance of the research apprenticeship for the discipline-based understanding of art pedagogy and its teaching methodology.
