Art and Design Education

In our age of systematically designed communication, art and design education has a key role to play.

The new media with all their potentials and perspectives, the depth and scope of work and production methods in art and design and the process of social transformation all impact on the way art and design are taught and communicated at and beyond school. In the age of systematically designed communication, art and design education has become increasingly important.

Art educators face the challenging task of teaching art and design competently and based on own experience. On the part of the teachers this requires a comprehensive and intricate understanding of art and design far beyond the field of education.

This is the focus that the Institute of Art and Design Education, based on the one-hundred-year-old tradition of teacher education in Basel, relies on in its Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Arts (MA) programmes with the aim of imparting a comprehensive and interdisciplinary range of skills and knowledge to its students. This includes teaching the ability of design expression and a wide range of technical skills along with creative processes and strategies, art research methods, communication skills, art and design-theoretical knowledge as well as the methodologies of teaching and outreach.
