Christine Woywod earned her Ph.D. in Art Education at Northern Illinois University in 2010. Her research interests include 1) project based curriculum and arts integration, 2) creative engagement opportunities for older adults, and 3) publicly engaged scholarship and community partnerships. From 2012-2014 she was the PI/Project Director for Avanzando Lectura y Matemáticas a través del Arte / Advancing Math and Reading through the Arts (ALMA), a research project partnership between the United Community Center, Latino Arts, Inc., and UWM funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Development and Dissemination Grant Program. 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 integrated learning experiences for students.
During 2013-2015, Dr. Woywod is serving as membership chair for the Wisconsin Art Education Association and as chair for the National Art Education Association’s Committee on Lifelong Learning.
