Find out more about object-based learning at a lunchtime workshop

23 January 2013

UCL Museums and Public Engagement have planned five lunchtime events for staff keen to learn about the use of object-based learning (OBL) in university teaching.

Running throughout February (dates and times below), the events will be hosted by Dr Leonie Hannan, Teaching Fellow in Object-Based Learning, who will be on hand to discuss how UCL Museums and Collections can support teaching across all disciplines at UCL.

Leonie says, "If you fancy getting your hands on a crocodile skull, a rare Medieval book, a medical specimen, a sword swallower’s sword, a Rembrandt, an Ancient Egyptian shabti or a 150-year-old scientific gadget, come along!"

A range of new object-based e-learning resources will be showcased at the events, and participants will also get a sneak preview of 3D interactive technologies for use in the classroom.

The workshops will take place in the North Cloisters of the Wilkins Building, next to the 'Learning with Objects' exhibition. Dates are as follows:       

  • Tuesday 12 February 2013, 1-2pm (Reading Week) 
  • Friday 15 February 2013, 1-2pm (Reading Week)  
  • Monday 18 February 2013, 1-2pm 
  • Wednesday 20 February 2013, 1-2pm  
  • Wednesday 27 February 2013, 1-2pm  

Sessions are open to all. Please RSVP to Leonie at stating the date you would like to attend.
