<P>This book explores reflective practice as a source and resource for teaching, learning and research in Art and Design, Dance, Drama and Music. Many of the authors are both arts educators and researchers who reflect current trends in arts education, and consider the relationships between teachers, artists and learners across disciplines. The book offers a resource for individual and collective professional development which, by its nature, involves reflecting on practice.</P>
It is an exciting time to be an artist and artist educator. Networks of schools and artists are being motivated by arts partnerships, a relatively new phenomenon in a field which whilst disparate in its character and practice, is marked by a common intention, to respond effectively and critically to politically driven agendas of accountability, school improvement and pupil attainment. More than ever artists and educators alike have begun to realise the need to develop practices which offer the development of artist educator pedagogies as agencies for change and political action. Understanding the function of reflective practice, the conditions which s- port it and its impact on learning, are addressed throughout this book. We hope that the book will motivate readers, with a diversity of interests and needs, to engage in reflections of their own professional practices and of the practices of the commu- ties in which they work This book is about reflection. The thesis about the field it covers and major premise of this book is that reflection matters at every turn in arts engagement and even more so in educational settings where artist educators share a passion for facilitating and understanding the ‘how’of learners engagement with p- ticular art forms. It aims to show ways in which reflection can inform and transform practice in terms of what, when and how reflection is embodied in arts engagement.

It aims to investigate the concept of reflection and its application to a range of contemporary arts education contexts for both teachers and learners. For beginning and experienced teachers the book offers practical ideas and frameworks for thinking critically about their own teaching (and learning) as well as providing insights into work taking place in other arts disciplines. The growing field of arts partnerships and artist/educators is also well represented by case studies and descriptions of specific practical strategies.</P>
