At the Museum: Object-based learning field trip at a NYC Cultural Institution
Object-based learning encourages close-looking, critical analysis, and communication skills. In this field trip, visit a NYC cultural institution with your trainer to learn about how to best utilize the city’s cultural resources for your programs and to implement object-based teaching techniques that you can bring back to the classroom. Participants will learn strategies for a variety of object-based learning techniques practiced by professional museum educators and will engage in hands-on learning by developing on site lesson-plans and activities. Participation in this program is limited to 15 people.
*Institution and trainer will work collaboratively to identify a site based upon availability and goals.
