CEHHS Welcomes New Faculty: Joy Bertling, Art Education, Department of Theory & Practice in Teacher Education

Joy G. Bertling, University of Georgia graduate, is a clinical assistant professor in Art Education in the Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education. She earned her National Board Teaching Certification in Visual Art and taught art in K-12 public schools for over a decade, primarily at the middle school level. Her research focuses on the intersection of art education and ecological concerns, primarily through research on art education informed by a critical pedagogy of place.

She also explores the potential of image-based research methods through her work. Her article, “The Art of Empathy:  A Mixed Methods Case Study of a Critical Place-Based Art Education Program,” was published this August in the International Journal of Art and Education.
