Location: Graduate Student Center 305
Summary: Objects can liven up a classroom. They can turn abstract discussions concrete, elicit new forms of student participation, and energize new modes of learning and engagement. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to use objects to reach your own teaching goals and get students excited about your field. We’ll discuss types of objects that can be used in teaching, precious or quotidian, as well as which types of objects are best used in what ways to reach specific pedagogical goals. We’ll have a person from the Penn Museum who, drawing from her own experience, will help guide our discussion.All graduate students are welcome.
