We are headed to the American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana next week! Come meet up with members of the project team, with two key opportunities
We will be facilitating an open forum session on Wednesday, May 22 at 11am-12pm CDT, entitled Museum Educators as Teacher Educators: Research and Reflections on Best Practices for Providing Teacher Professional Development in La Nouvelle Ballroom.
Lead researcher Dr. Christine Baron will be in attendance alongside Sarah Cahill (Director of Education, Mystic Seaport), Allison Wickens (VP for Education, Mount Vernon), and Lora Cooper (Project Coordinator, Monticello) who will share how the research has influenced each of their programs.
We will also be hosting a meet-up on Tuesday, May 21 at Revelator Coffee (637 Tchoupitoulas St. New Orleans, LA 70130) from 7:30-9:00am. Come meet other museum professionals involved in facilitating teacher professional development at sites and museums and enjoy a caffeine jolt and a pastry on us before heading over to the morning key note!
We hope to see you there!
