Workshop: Integrating the Visual: Tools for Teaching with Images, Objects,...
Tue, May 23, 2017, 10:45 AM – 12:45 PM EDT
Grounded in research on real-world faculty use of museum collections, this workshop will use the collection of the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) to explore strategies for teaching with museum objects and primary sources. This interactive session will present approaches that work for both one-shot and long-term projects that focus on different skill sets, regardless of learning outcomes and objectives. Attendees will have time to workshop their own ideas or projects, but do not need to have projects in mind to participate. By the end of the session, participants will be able design class sessions around museum (or special collections) objects and see new ways to build connections between academic libraries and museums. Note: No food, drink, or pens are permitted in the UMMA study rooms. Participants should come prepared with pencils and paper.
