In a discussion with the Denison faculty, Megan Hancock, curator of education and exhibitions at the Denison Museum, shared some ways in which faculty can connect concepts and engage students using fine art and cultural material.
She notes, “Examine how faculty are currently using museum exhibitions and the permanent collection, as well as opportunities starting next semester. From research, creative writing, science, sociology, language, or fine art practice, the Museum is working with faculty to create experiential and integrative learning experiences linked to classroom content.”
