Vittoria S. (Vicki) Daiello, B.F.A., M.A., Ph.D., is Associate Professor in the School of Art in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) where she teaches in the Art Education and Fine Arts Programs. As a member of the Academy of Fellows for Teaching & Learning (AFTL) at UC, Dr. Daiello's teaching practice focuses on dialogic arts pedagogies and their potential for facilitating inclusive dialogues and compassionate classroom communities. Daiello's research and creative practice are entwined with her teaching, employing writing as both method of artistic inquiry and object of study. An ongoing project, Accumulation of Uncertainties, is a pedagogical research endeavor that uses iterative, cumulative, and dialogic forms of writing and artmaking to reveal subtle structures of affective labor within educators’ and students’ shared learning experiences.
A 2019-2020 Transdisciplinary Research Leadership Scholar (UC Office of Research), Daiello's teaching, research, and mentoring extend across disciplines. Her writing appears in peer-reviewed publications, including the Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Visual Arts Research Journal, The Journal of Social Theory in Art Education, Studies in Art Education, and Creative Approaches to Research Journal. She also co-authored, with Dr. Candace Jesse Stout, "Arts-Based Writing: The Performance of Our Lives" in the Handbook of Arts-Based Research (P. Leavy, Ed.). Daiello’s research papers and collaborative projects are also featured in cross-disciplinary national and international meetings, including the proceedings of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI), the National Art Education Association (NAEA), International Association of Societies of Design Research (IASDR); Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC), Foundations in Art: Theory and Education (FATE), 1st Conference on Arts-Based and Artistic Research, and the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media Conference (CUMULUS).
