Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token save it from that ruin which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and young, would be inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of understanding something new.
Hannah Arendt, Between Past and Future.
Integrative Teaching International (ITI) promotes wide sweeping discussion about the state of teaching and learning in the 21st century. Through our biennial ThinkTank event, our journal FutureForward and other sponsored programs, ITI seeks to foster intellectual skills necessary for exemplary instruction by master teachers, administrators and emerging educators.
ITI Publications are a way to get the word out to others in the field so the findings of the discussion groups and ThinkTank participants can reach a larger audience. We are committed to unveiling our own practice as artist teachers in a manner that is constructive, non-canonical and responsive to new ideas. By linking theory to practice it is our goal to support and empower those in the field who seek innovative approaches in teaching in the arts, based on a contemporary art practice.
