Common Core for Museum Professionals Webinar

September 18, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


The Creative Learning Factory at the Ohio Historical Society has created a three-webinar series just for museum educators.

Learning Theory and Museum Education Practice, previously recorded, provides a brief history of learning theories and demonstrates how those theories play out in classroom and museum settings.

A learning theory is composed of two parts – a theory of knowledge and a theory of learning. This presentation provides some basic definitions and provides time for discussion and questions. Other topics include: Multiple Intelligences, Bloom’s Taxonomy, Informal vs. Formal Learning, and Family Learning.

How Inquiry-Based and 21st Century Learning Styles Are Affecting Museum Programming, on July 18, will focus on how museums are developing school programming around 21st century skill techniques such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. It will identify strategies to meet these growing trends in formal and informal education programs and demonstrate how inquiry-based learning is fueling the push toward the development of 21st century skills and thinking.

Common Core for Museum Professionals, held September 18, will give an overview of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts and Math, including how they were developed and how they fit into the greater discussion of standards-based education. The presentation will examine how each set of CCSS is structured and then provide some strategies for designing new museum programs and activities that are aligned to the CCSS and adapt existing programs and activities for alignment. Finally, it will outline some key benefits to the CCSS like the encouragement of interdisciplinary instruction.
