Teaching and Learning with Museum Exhibitions: Innovations across the Disciplines
About This Book
Teaching and Learning with Museum Exhibitions: Innovations across the Disciplines is a project of The Teagle Foundation grant Teaching and Learning with Museum Exhibitions: An Inter-Institutional Approach. The innovative project seeks to develop new best practices in exhibition-based pedagogy across the disciplines and to integrate them into the curricula of four collaborating institutions: Colgate University, Hamilton College, Skidmore College, and the University at Albany, State University of New York. It took place over the course of three academic years (Fall 2016 – Spring 2019), beginning with a pedagogical development program for faculty and culminating in a public symposium and this publication.

In the museum, there’s a pace you can accomplish that you can’t really get away with in the studio or classroom. It has to do with a very slow and close and more rigorous critical analysis in front of a work that has a certain level of completion and distinction you can’t do with a slide, you can’t do with projection, and you can’t even do with the work that the student made twenty minutes ago. And you have a staff of pros at the museum who can help you navigate that slow unpacking.
