PRES 688 Integrating Museum Resources Into the Classroom

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

How do we effectively and routinely bring museum resources into our classrooms? This course offers educators a broad understanding of how to locate and use museum resources as lesson planning tools, to guide inquiry-based learning and curriculum development. With >35,000 museums in the US alone offering vast open educational resources (OER) for teachers to use in their classrooms, we will explore and analyze OER to enhance lesson planning and engage students with collections both at the museum and remotely. With visits to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, and the Institute of Contemporary Art to explore and extend the online experience into the physical space. We will draw in the galleries, and apply our collective online and in-person museum experiences into curriculum planning for the classroom. Open to K-12 teachers in all subject areas.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
