In the first week of September, the accreditation panel, commissioned by Hobeon, spent two days at both the master’s course Education in Arts in Zwolle and the international Master Artist Educator in Arnhem. The panel conducted discussions with the management of the master's courses, teachers, students, members of the field committee, and the examination committee to assess the level and quality of education.
This formal recognition confirms the relevance and impact of our art educators."
The panel also appreciated the focus on Issues-based Art Education in both courses, a method in which students are encouraged to express their perspectives on societal issues through art. The panel unanimously agreed: "No doubt, master competencies are prominently present in the curricula of these programs!"
Iris Eshel, director of the master's programs at ArtEZ, is extremely proud of this positive evaluation. "I am proud and pleased that the panel recognized the development of critical reflection and consciousness within both master's programs. Not only for their students but also for the people and communities their students come into contact with. This formal recognition confirms the relevance and impact of our art educators."
