Utilizing Museum Education Strategies in the College Classroom
Saturday, October 26 - 2:45PM to 3:30PM
Radical changes in education are resulting in a new generation of college students with disparate levels of academic training. How can photography professors, deeply trained in their own crafts but often self-trained in pedagogy, level the playing field? Museum education strategies are student-lead and student-empowered, based on the premise that all students posses the ability to learn. This presentation proposes museum education strategies as a tool to help level the playing field in the classroom, offering concrete strategies and addressing potential pitfalls.
