On October 23 from 4 to 6 pm, meet fellow educators for an afternoon of tours and refreshments around our fall exhibition John Lockwood Kipling: Arts & Crafts in the Punjab and London. The evening of teaching and object-based learning will begin with a gallery tour, followed by a hands-on Haptic Learning Through Touch workshop. Educators will gain tools on how to critically engage a diverse range of audiences through facilitating thoughtful, object-based discussions that can lead to powerful learning experiences. Network with fellow teachers, enjoy refreshments, and receive priority scheduling for future group tours. Educators of all disciplines and grade levels are welcome!
