Abstract

In this module we will discuss and review the different ways that you can facilitate close- looking with your students and engaging in open-ended, inquiry-based conversation around works of art. Don’t wait to start practicing! Grab a friend or a family member and start leading inquiry- based conversation around a work of art, or anything. As you will see in the Google Hangout video, you can use a digital image or any object that you have around that would lend itself to leading an inquiry-based discussion. These practice sessions are not required but the more you practice, the easier and better your classroom performance will be. The discipline is based on MOOC "Art & Inquiry: Museum Teaching Strategies For Your Classroom", created by MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) via CourseEra.
