Museum Education: Still the “Uncertain Profession”

Date: October 1, 2020
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Zoom

Sheila McGuire will provide an overview of core issues shaping the museum education profession today, including equity, accessibility, diversity, and inclusion. She will also discuss the learning framework developed by the Learning Innovation team at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia). The framework describes how Mia’s educators define learning and explains the core focus areas that guide their vision and work: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Empathy, and Global Understanding. McGuire is currently the Head of Student and Teacher Learning at Mia and has worked there in museum education for more than 30 years.

This event is free and open to the public.
