A Pedagogy of Attention to the Light in the Eyes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


The setting is the intensive course Art and Sustainability Education that I teach annually as Professor in Art Education at the Estonian Academy of Arts. This time, in the autumn of 2018, I am with ten students and we have gathered for four days in Arbavere, a resort on the periphery of Lahemaa National Park. Several sessions take place through the day – inside as well as outside. We shift from seminars to hands-on workshops and back, and at intervals we reflect together on our shared experiences and try to trace the connections between theory and practice. In my indoor presentations in the group room, a wide array of themes comes to the fore.
