Welcome, Animation Educators!
As part of our mission to support educators in the field of animation, we are compiling an expanding collection of resources that will be posted here. Topics include contact information for members, career and employment information, sample tutorials, syllabi and curricula, and animation textbook reviews. If you have suggestions or material to submit, please send us an email.
We are providing the following services to Animation Educators Forum members only:
- Jobs and Career Information lists links to job sites and useful articles for career development.
- Tutorials, Syllabi, and Curricula is a collection of useful teaching documents from fellow animation educators.
- Textbook Reviews provides an area to post evaluations of textbooks and other publications of interest to animation educators.

Tutorials, Syllabi and Curricula
Animation Education is a fast changing field, always moving to keep up with new media, new techniques and new software. Faculty are faced with the need to constantly update their material. This page is a place to post your latest class or curriculum change, and to look for best practices from your colleagues.
To submit tutorials, syllabi or curricula, email. Please verify permission with your school or university prior to submitting material. All submissions are reviewed by the AEF committee. The submitter assumes responsibility for any copyright infringement.*
For many years, there was Preston Blair’s legendary “ Cartoon Animation” book and not much else. Now there are a lot of texts about animation, some useful to animation educators and some not. This page gives you a chance to post a review of your favorites, or to warn fellow teachers of a dud.
To submit a review, email. All submissions are reviewed by the AEF committee. The submitter assumes responsibility for any copyright infringement.*
Text Book Reviews are posted as they are received, with the most recent at the top of the list. For a list of the 20 books every animation artist should have on his or her shelf, see the Student Resources page.
