This panel presentation composed of instructors will discuss the design and experience of the collaborative facilitation of an arts-based research capstone course created in 2018 for an online graduate program in Art Education. Guided by the question,” in what ways were our students invited to explore, embed, and integrate the arts in their research?” we will discuss how the course design functioned as a creative map that provided direction yet allowed a flexible structure for student guidance. We will elaborate on the artistic and epistemological challenges students encountered in contextualizing their practice within a broader research sphere. As they worked, they aimed at maintaining “internal consistency and coherence that represent[ed] a strong and seamless relationship between purpose and method” (Cole & Knowles, 2008. p.67). Examples of students’ artistic research will illustrate the concepts presented.
