Christine Woywod earned her Ph.D. in Art Education at Northern Illinois University in 2010. Through her dissertation, she interrogated the narratives emerging from the material culture of high school art environments, as described by National Board Certified art educators. She previously taught art in elementary and high school settings and has presented her research in state, national, and international venues. As a result of her teaching experiences and research, she believes it is important to take issue-based approaches to art instruction and she is enthusiastic about collaborating with other educators to create interdisciplinary learning experiences for students. She is a contributor to the books Semiotics and Visual Culture: Sights, signs, and significance (Smith-Shank, 2004) and Practice Theory: Seeing the Power of Teacher Researchers (Buffington and McKay, forthcoming). She currently serves as a columnist for the NAEA Caucus on Social Theory in Art Education.
