ZADAR – Museum Based Learning
Elevate your teaching to new heights with our museum-based learning course to create dynamic, experiential and project-based lessons that increase the engagement of students
Museums as hubs for digitalisation, innovation and interaction
In today’s society, museums and galleries are more relevant than they have ever been. In essence, museums have evolved from exclusive repositories of curated collections to inclusive, dynamic spaces that cater to a broad and diverse audience. They are hubs of education and culture oriented to create multidisciplinary spaces, integrating art, science, history and technology. Moreover, museums stimulate curiosity, a sense of wonder, that inspires and unleashes new ideas helping with professional and personal growth.
Explore important museums and galleries in the beautiful Mediterranean town of Zadar
We designed this course for teachers to experience a completely different learning environment that lets them develop creativity and critical thinking, analytical, observation and problem-solving skills.
The participants will also explore how museum methods and pedagogies can help with their everyday curricular or extracurricular activities.With our excellent teacher trainers, the participants will visit museum exhibitions and take part in various workshops that align with social and natural science subjects as well as new technologies.
This will include a visit to the Museum of Ancient Glass, the Archeological Museum, non-typical living museums of the Old Town, The Museum of Nin antiquities, the National Museum of Zadar, and the magnificent multisensory open-air experience at the Sea Organ and Greeting to the Sun.
Furthermore, in an informal environment, participants will have the chance to forge meaningful connections with colleagues from across Europe and familiarize themselves with Croatian local traditions, cultural heritage and natural beauties.
By the end of the course, the participants will gain a comprehensive and innovative toolkit to enrich their educational practices and help students learn better and think bigger.
