TeachArt Wiki is a collaboration for teaching and learning about art using wiki. Wiki, a Web 2.0 tool, enables collaborative writing and editing. The process of collaborative writing and editing creates a social learning setting that facilitates peer interaction and informal learning from each other as well as creates an interface for discourse and construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction of knowledge. TeachArt Wiki, set up by Dr. Guey-Meei Yang (an art educator teaching at Eastern Michigan University) and Dr. Tom Suchan (an art historian teaching at Eastern Michigan University), is intended to contribute to the understandings of art created through researching, writing, editing, and collaborating. Anyone who is interested in contributing is welcome to join. As we, TeachArt Wiki members, continuously grow in our understanding of art and teaching of art, TeachArt Wiki entries will reflect our collective and dynamic growth on art and teaching over time.

Who Should Participate? How to Join?
Individuals, universities classes, art museums and galleries are welcome to join and contribute to TeachArt Wiki. Participants can find the easy step-by-step instructions by clicking the hyperlink How to Join here or on the left Navigation menu. If you teach art history, art education, or art classes and would like to include a TeachArt Wiki assignment in your class, please contact Guey-Meei Yang (gyang@emich.edu) or Tom Suchan (tsuchan@emich.edu). We would be happy to share our experiences and specific assignment guidelines with you. In addition, if you are interested in collaborating with us in conducting, publishing, and presenting TeachArt Wiki related research, please contact us! There is also a Chinese language version of TeachArt Wiki that was set-up by faculty at the National Changhua University of Education, Taiwan. A link to that site is provided in the Navigation window on the leftside of this page.

The learning and teaching of art is an interdisciplinary area that encompasses the disciplines of arts, humanities, education, and sciences. To ensure the consistency in style and elements across all TeachArt Wiki entries, we ask that all TeachArt Wiki members follow the suggested formatting, content, and art lesson guidelines for writing and editing entries. If you have questions or suggestions about the guidelines, please feel free to contact Guey-Meei Yang (gyang@emich.edu) or Tom Suchan (tsuchan@emich.edu).
