Sound (Teaching) Bites: Innovative ways to use the Fleming Museum's collections in teaching

Thursday, March 29 2012 @ 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM

Learn how colleagues from across campus have used objects from the Fleming's cultural, historical, and art collections to support teaching across a wide range of disciplines, from mathematics and engineering to ecology, geography, anthropology, among others. We'll discuss how Fleming Museum staff can help you to enhance classroom teaching with object-based pedagogy in support of Gen Ed outcomes and diversity competencies.
Facilitated by Janie Cohen, the Fleming Museum

Each Sound (Teaching) Bite will start at noon and open with a 15 minute presentation highlighting best practices or research findings. Participants are welcome to stay for a brownbag lunch and follow-up conversation.
