What does the VTMO course include?
The course includes eight modules through which you will learn how to confidently use my method for using Visible Thinking in the Museum. All course materials are in English and are available to stream online.
You’ll also receive downloadable PDFs and a variety of articles to read and be inspired by.
Plus there’s access to a supportive online community for course students in which you’ll be able to ask any questions you have about the course and how to use thinking routines to create lively discussions about art and museum objects.
The VTMO course is only available within the Visible Thinking Membership programme.
