Faculty Use of Museum Resources in their Teaching
During the Fall 2018 semester, eight classes worked with the Arctic Museum’s materials, accessing over two hundred works from the collection. Art History students sharpened their visual analysis skills through close observation of contemporary Inuit prints. Anthropology and Government classes used the exhibit Threads of Change as a foundation for robust discussions on critical contemporary Arctic issues. Hispanic Studies students wrote Spanish language compositions inspired by their favorite objects on exhibit.
At the Arctic Museum we are passionate about developing creative, object-based experiences tailored to specific course themes. If you would like to incorporate the Arctic Museum into your class, or if you are interested in brainstorming ways to use the museum’s holdings, please contact Genny LeMoine, the museum’s curator, at email@example.com. We are happy to support your learning goals through exhibit tours and critiques, close studies of selected objects, as well as your own ideas of ways to approach and use the museum’s resources.
