4. The Teacher
The person teaching a course may have a bearing on whether you choose to sign up for a course or not. For those of you who don’t know me, here is a brief introduction to me and why I have spent the last 10 years teaching my method of using Visible Thinking in the Museum:
I found out 10 years ago that many educators and guides were struggling to meet the demands of leading inquiry-based programmes. I wanted to simplify the process and ohave since developed a method that engages both the educator (renamed as the facilitator) and the participants (aka the audience). I wanted to get rid of the confusion surrounding inquiry-led programmes and develop a flexible process that made sense.
‘Visible Thinking in the Museum‘ is a method that uses thinking routines for flexible structure and question formulation along with facilitation techniques, collaborative learning and museum education practices. The result is ‘inquiry made simple’. A easy-to-follow process that allows you to confidently design, lead and manage engaging inquiry-led sessions with art and artefacts.
In 2020, I developed ‘Visible Thinking in the Museum Online’ an 8 module online programme teaching participants to use my ‘Visible Thinking in the Museum’ method. VTMO is now the flagship course of the Visible Thinking Membership – a global learning community for educators.” For more information about the last 10 years of Visible Thinking in the Museum, see here.
