Thanks for visiting! This site provides an overview and shares resources from my twenty-years’ experience in education, curriculum design, and more recently museum and arts education. I specialize in developing dynamic online and in-person learning experiences. I have a Master’s degree in Education and Human Development, a certificate in Museum Studies and I am developing and completing a Master’s degree in Modern Art History.
My current focus is on creating art engagement learning experiences. Soon to launch is my platform, Art History for Real, that delivers unique, dynamic learning experiences about art. My goal is to make learning about and appreciating art more approachable, relevant and fun—real learning for real people. Launch date is February 2021.
I am also developing curriculum for graduate courses for a Master’s degree in Modern Art History. My approach is from two perspectives—the curriculum developer and student. Details, including learning objectives and program outline are here.
Shortcuts to My Resources and Programs
Online Education & Curriculum Design
My curated lists of resources: blended learning for K-12, and how to teach online, and instructive, helpful resources for developing online courses and curriculum.
Designing curriculum for museum education differs significantly from traditional education; see my strategies for developing museum learning programs here. I also host a blog Museums for Real where I share my thoughts and ideas on how to make museums more relevant and approachable.
Art History Learning
I am developing courses for a Master’s in Modern Art History, and am making these available to anyone interested in learning more about art history. Courses are comprehensive with high-quality content that includes online resources, journal articles, images, as well as detailed assignment descriptions, and rubrics for conducting self-assessments.
