About AADTE Art and Design Teacher Education and Pedagogy

In Cumulus International Association of Universities and Colleges in Art, Design and Media there are a lot of expertise in art and design pedagogy. Many schools carry out also an art and design teacher education degree programme or special study modules of art and design pedagogy.

Art and Design Teacher Education and Pedagogy Cumulus Working Group (AADTE CWG) will aggregate this expertise within Cumulus network and promote co-creative development of innovative pedagogy and learning in art and design education, especially related with art and design teacher education and pedagogical study modules.

The AADTE CWG will share experiences and different models of art and design teacher education and pedagogy and promote co-creative development projects of pedagogy and learning between CWG participant and partner schools of Cumulus network.

This is a great change to reimagine, co-create and explore future proof and relevant working methods in our AADTE CWG, and make our collaboration more vivid and deeper.


Due to the current situation covid-19, we have initiated a series of online meetings.
The participants are invited to share their experiences and existing innovations of distant learning and teaching and any other relevant topics in art and design education and pedagogy.

Please feel warmly welcome to the AADTE CWG online meeting even without a presentation. As well, please feel free to tell your needs and ideas of relevant contents for the online meeting. For idea sharing you can use our new Facebook group or contact Martti or Andreas or Minna via email.

Please feel warmly welcome to the AADTE Working Group meetings.
