Evaluating Interpretive Exhibits course begins March 2 on

January 20th 2020

Exhibits are one of the most expensive of interpretive media we use, and yet one of the media that we often really don't know if "it works".  We judge exhibits by their appearance rather than by their success in accomplishing meaningful objectives. We like to ask -if you spend $10,000 on your exhibits, how will you determine if you're receiving $10,000 in benefits from those exhibits? That's usually when we get the "deer in the headlights" stare. Join professional interpreter John Ve ...Continue Reading

RE: Professional Development Opportunities

January 16th 2020

You might want to look at Forum for Leadership in Art Museum Education (FLAME). FLAME advances the public value and social impact of art museums by fostering leadership in art museum education. FLAME was organized by a small group of Directors/Heads of Education who were interested in developing a strong network of support and mentorship, as well as opportunities for professional growth and inspiration. The vision for FLAME is to provide a long-term strategy for professional development, research, and advocacy fo ...Continue Reading

Re: Professional Development Opportunities

Though it may sometimes be more beneficial for art museum educators as opposed to all museum educators, I have found the National Art Education Association Museum Pre-conference to be thought provoking. You'd want to look up NAEA and search "Museum Division" for more info. They hold it around March and locations change each year.  They typically have a keynote address in the morning, followed by break out sessions in the afternoon.  It's a single day.Dawn E.

Hello Candie,This is Shannon from the Milwaukee Art Museum. Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Brave Spaces conference in Boston at the ICA.

The conference was fun and forward thinking. I highly encourage you to check out their website to review.I have also found it helpful to attend conferences for ...Continue Reading

Professional Development Opportunities

January 16th 2020

Hello all –   I’m curious as to professional developments that you’ve found particularly beneficial in your role as museum educators (if that is your role). I’ve attended the AAM annual conferences in the past, a Museum Hack Audience Engagement Boot Camp, and an Artful Thinking & Learning Conference by Harvard’s Project Zero. I’m struggling to think beyond the typical museum education professional development opportunities.   Thanks in advance!   Best, Candie Waterloo Curator of Education   Ch ...Continue Reading
