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 studying to complete a Master’s degree in Modern Art History.
My current focus is on developing art history and art engagement programs. I am developing a program that delivers unique, engaging experiences with art, without the museum. My goal is to make learning about and appreciating art more approachable, relevant and fun—for real people. Details coming soon.
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 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. They will be available for anyone interested in learning more about art history. Courses include learning objectives, content with links to online resources and journal articles, assignment descriptions, and rubrics for conducting self-assessments. Canadian Art History launches October 2020. History of 19th-Century Art, Criticism, and Theory launches December 2020.
