Professional Development

Education at the Hofstra University Museum of Art

For Teachers and Schools P-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 use the Museum’s collection and exhibitions to examine various topics, appeal to multiple learning styles, and exercise critical thinking skills.

Topics may include:

  • Interdisciplinary connections
  • Building visual literacy
  • Inquiry-based learning
  • Accessibility and special needs

Fee: $25 per participant
