New to the Library: The Art and Craft of Pedagogy by Richard Hickman

Richard Hickman’s new book, The Art and Craft of Pedagogy: Portraits of Effective Teachers, opens with the following sentence,’ This book examines the notion that successful teachers of art & design are among the best teachers of any subject and that they have much to offer outside their discipline in terms of pedagogy.’  To illustrate this, he presents the life stories of ten art teachers, many of whom either have been or still are associated with the Faculty, and who may all in their very different ways be considered successful teachers. It is a fascinating and illuminating book. Check Library availability here.
