The Research and Praxis Board
InSEA Research and Praxis: Open and Flexible
The InSEA Research and Praxis Board is an aspect of the InSEA philosophy to present information in various forms to all educators involved in the arts. Our research and praxis publications seek to promote good practice and cutting-edge research in the field, which is electronic and has open access to this website. The delivery of contemporary arts practices may be presented in video formats like our Webinars, Visual Essays, Essays, White Papers, or other forms of delivery of the various research platforms. We promote a wide range of research and praxis from a diverse set of educational contexts from community-based art to a more formal university and school praxis in addition to arts-based educational research. Art in this context applies to a wide range of applications to include but not limited to art, craft, and design. We recognize the importance of the interdisciplinary nature of our practices and we invite research and praxis that includes other disciples and how these interact, inform, or influence art practices and the arts communities.
If you are interested in submitting a research or praxis article, video, or white paper, please refer to the IJETA or IMAG journals for stylistic guidance. All submissions are reviewed through a blind, peer-review process by the members of the Research and Praxis Board to ensure a high-quality publication that is available on our website.
