Online Course: Art and Global Learning
This self-paced online course (open October 11 through December 6) uses works of art from the Museum’s collection as a pathway to understanding global issues and developing cross-cultural understanding. The goal of this course is to help you, and eventually your students, explore global issues through inquiry-driven, art-based practices. The course will help you make connections to your content areas, identify your own global practice, and provide strategies to help students investigate the world, recognize perspectives, communicate ideas, and take action.
