Higher education

Object-based learning at UCL takes many forms, supporting the development of analytical, critical and practical skills.

Artefacts, specimens, historical texts and artworks are used in:

- biology practicals
- archaeology handling sessions
- anthropology projects
- art historical analysis
- museum studies exhibitions
- computer studies projects
- practical teaching of anatomy and pathology

Excellent object-based learning takes place at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, involving over 100 course units and 2500 students per annum.

Developing a new session, or series of sessions, using UCL's museum collections represents an excellent way to enhance the quality of both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. For teaching staff who are interested in running new courses or enlivening established ones, there is plenty of support available within Museums & Collections to help meet the needs of specific courses.
