Classroom Connect is the Art Institute's customized, three-hour professional development program for teacher groups.
Starting with works of art, teachers increase their familiarity with inquiry-based teaching methods, including looking strategies, open-ended questioning, and object-based learning activities that can be conducted in both the museum and classroom. Teachers also learn about programs and resources available at the museum.
Fee: $25 per person ($12 per pre-service student) Minimum 12 participants 3 CPDUs
