Training Courses Offered by Thinking Museum

Visible Thinking (VT) is an approach to teaching and learning that offers opportunities to develop thinking dispositions such as curiosity, understanding and a creative mindset. Originally developed for classroom use, Claire Bown, founder of Thinking Museum has successfully adapted elements of VT for use in museum programmes and developed the first museum programmes to use VT in the Netherlands at the Tropenmuseum in 2011.

Since then, Claire Bown has trained hundreds of museum educators, guides and docents in all types of museums all over the Netherlands and beyond in working with our flexible method of using Visible Thinking in the museum environment. For more information on our in-house trainings and details of museums we’ve worked with in the past, please see here.

Claire also runs regular ‘Visible Thinking in the Museum’ open workshops in a variety of international locations – these workshops are open to all and attract a large number of international participants. Join our VT mailing list to be the first to hear about upcoming workshops – places are strictly limited. If you would like to be a host venue for a ‘Visible Thinking in the Museum’ workshop, please contact us.
