Deeper Learning in a Distance Learning World: Spring Workshop 3

Cultivating Thinking Habits of Mind
Vaijayanti Wagle, Independent Educator

How can we develop in learners the habits of making connections, trying on new perspectives, uncovering layers of meaning, gathering facts, seeking evidence, and other such critical thinking skills that will ensure them richer and deeper learning both in and outside the classroom? In this workshop, we will explore how artworks can be employed to develop such critical thinking dispositions. Vaija will draw from lessons she helped to develop for the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery.
