Another issue that Terry's debate on critiques raises is one of faculty
change. How do we help college level faculty change their views of how
art should be taught? How do we get them to question what they do? How
can we get them to consider that there might be more than one way to
conduct a critique?

Some college faculty are resistant to change. Partly because they
believe in what they do as individual artists, partly because they are
"tenured," partly because colleges promote "acdemic freedom," partly
because they feel that their institutions don't support them, and partly
because change is threatening and disconcerting. Yet there are others who
want to change but need help in doing so. Perhaps we as art educators
have an obligation to help these faculty. Terry obviously thinks so.

How can art educators broadly defined to include art education students,
K-12 teachers, and college level teachers and faculty help studio faculty
rethink how they conduct critques, and how they teach art? Craig Roland's
course is one way, but I am sure there are others.
