Watch video of Elliot W. Eisner, Lee Jacks Professor of Education and professor of art at Stanford University, speaking in September 2006 on “What Do the Arts Teach?” The speech was the second of the 2006-2007 Chancellors Lecture Series and part of Vanderbilts annual Family Weekend.

In his lecture, “What Do the Arts Teach?,” Eisner explored the ways in which the process of thinking and creating artistically can and should be used to improve educational practice in every discipline. He argued that that the distinctive forms of thinking needed to create artistically crafted work are relevant not only to what students do, but also to virtually all aspects of what educators do from the design of curricula, to the practice of teaching, to the features of the environment in which students and teachers live.
