Teaching with Objects 101
Are you interested in teaching with objects, but don’t know where to start? Do you need a "refresher" on object-based teaching practices? Are you curious about the CultureLab, a hands-on space in Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum, and how to visit with your students? Join Leah Burgin, Haffenraffer’s manager of Museum Education & Programs, for this back-to-basics workshop. Participants engage with objects from the collection and help the museum develop a new object-based teaching kit.
Space is limited. Registration required.
Meet at Brown University's Haffenreffer Museum, Manning Hall, 1st floor, 21 Prospect Street.
This collaborative series, between the RISD Museum and Brown University’s Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning, invites instructors to explore object-based teaching and learning strategies and consider ways to incorporate arts or object-based pedagogy in courses across the disciplines. Join us for sessions facilitated by faculty and staff who discuss the ways they teach with art and objects in their courses and strategies for working with collections.
Upcoming sessions include:
Museum as Object - Tuesday, November 5, 12-1:20 pm
Meet at RISD Museum’s Benefit Street entrance, 224 Benefit Street.
