Teacher Workshop: Exhibition as Pedagogy

March 21, 2015
Ryan Education Center, Studio C
$50; 5 CPDUs

Exhibitions reflect the ideas of museum professionals including curators, designers, educators, and media relations experts as well as current values informing how museums view the role of visitors in the construction of their own knowledge. In this workshop we will use the museum as a laboratory to critically examine how exhibitions function as pedagogy and consider the variety of decisions and criteria that culminate in exhibitions with distinctive identities and messages. Participants will work together to develop exhibition proposals that foster student-centered learning and investigate how exhibition design intersects with pedagogy. Ideas from this workshop can be applied to a variety of scenarios, including developing curriculum, planning tours, organizing school-based exhibitions, or designing classroom presentations.
