Course: Integrating Museum Resources into the Classroom

Posted by University of the Arts on October 10, 2016

Curious about how to routinely integrate museum resources into your classroom, while earning graduate credits? Join us for UArts’ NEWEST course, Integrating Museum Resources into the Classroom with artist- educator Jacqueline Cassidy beginning October 22!

We offer K-12 educators a broad understanding of how to locate and use museum resources as lesson planning tools to guide inquiry-based learning. With >35,000 museums in the US alone offering vast open educational resources (OER) for classroom use, we will explore and analyze OER to deepen student engagement with collections both at the museum and remotely. Visits to the PMA, the Barnes Foundation, and the ICA extend our online experience into the physical space. We will spend time drawing in the galleries, and we will apply our collective museum experiences into curriculum planning for the classroom. Open to K-12 teachers across subject areas.
