Claire’s Favourites: Getting started with thinking routines in the museum

  • by

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been picking my favourite episodes from the podcast’s archive. Today, I want to share some helpful advice about starting to use thinking routines in your art or object discussions.

In September I’m going to start teaching my Visible Thinking in the Museum Online Beginners course or VTMO Beginners as it’s affectionately known. Around the same time, I’ll also be publishing my book about the VTM approach – Slow Looking at Art: The Visible Thinking in the Museum Approach

I know from experience that when I teach this first VTM course, there is always a buzz when we get going and an enthusiasm to learn as much as you can as quickly as possible.

There are so many thinking routines to choose from, and it can be tempting to try them all at once.

But in this episode, I’ll explain why it’s important to take a step back and slow down.

Enjoy the process and avoid the temptation to do everything at once.

I’m sharing 13 tips I’ve learned from using thinking routines with art and objects for over 12 years. If you’re new to thinking routines or the VTM approach, this episode is perfect for you!

PS This is the final episode in my favourites series. Next week I’ll be back with a brand new episode – I can’t wait!
