VISIBLE THINKING in the MUSEUM ONLINE

This 8 module interactive online course is a combination of self-directed study and live tutorials with Claire Bown. It is suitable for organisations who want to support and offer professional development to their team members (teams of museum guides, heritage educators, docents and volunteers) and for individuals who would like to further their professional development and learn how to create lively discussions about art and museum objects. (e.g. freelance museum guides, teachers and learning practitioners). No prior experience is required to start with the course. It is available as part of the Visible Thinking Membership programme.

REFRESHER COURSE

REFRESHER COURSE

How are we going to lead engaging group experiences around art and objects going forwards?
Have your team been unable to practise their craft and lead groups for the past few months?
Maybe your team feels a little rusty, or in need of brushing up their skills or knowledge.  Perhaps they are a little anxious about working in-person with groups again.
If any of this sounds familiar, my REFRESHER COURSE is here to help.

Lena Eriksson, Head of Education
It was a pleasure to work with Claire Bown, both in the planning, and implementation of the online training sessions.
Her in-depth knowledge of art, the museum context and thinking routines made the customisation of the training for an advanced team fun and professional.
We arranged the training in two parts, one part more focused on working with children and schools and one part more focused on general audience and adult groups.
The sessions have provided a common area of reflection for our team as well as new practical tools in facilitation.

Claire, thank you so very much for your incredible slow looking masterclass for my art museum education graduate students.  We were all completely riveted by your calm, even demeanor and soothing voice.  We could have listened to you all day.  You were like the Pied Piper of Art Museum Education!  You could have led us anywhere and we would have followed!

I was incredibly impressed with your organization both leading up to and during the session, the flow of class, the captivating piece of art you chose for our discussion, and the content of your presentation.  It was everything I hoped it would be and more!  I would love for all of my future cohorts of students to get the same opportunity to study with you.  Thank you, Claire!”
