Education at the Hofstra University Museum
FOR TEACHERS & SCHOOLS K-12 - PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Through professional development classes, workshops, and educational materials, (which can be tailored to meet a school’s specific curricular needs) teachers are encouraged to expand their knowledge and discover methods of incorporating object-centered learning into their curricula to enhance learning in multiple disciplines. Programs and materials help teachers develop strategies for incorporating art into their curriculum areas. Sessions utilize the Museum’s collection and exhibitions to examine various topics, appeal to multiple learning styles, and exercise critical thinking skills.
Topics may include:
Building visual literacy
Accessibility and special needs
Fee: $10 per participant
