Duke's Unique Teaching Spaces: Nasher Museum of Art
The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University is an interdisciplinary nexus and laboratory where faculty and students can investigate, explore and test knowledge. Confronted with a different kind of source material—objects and images rather than text—viewers are challenged to consider concepts and issues in a new way. By providing the necessary tools and experiences to explore visual culture critically, the museum’s Academic Initiatives department empowers faculty and students to search out their own answers.
In this session, begin brainstorming ways to incorporate the Nasher Museum into your teaching, while enjoying a behind-the-scenes tour of Study Storage, as well as exhibitions currently on view with academic curators, Julia McHugh, Ph.D. and Ellen Raimond, Ph.D. Find out how they work one-on-one with faculty to design course-specific tours, lesson plans and assignments that complement classes, as well as facilitate students’ skills-based learning in visual literacy, communication, and teamwork.
