Training Workshops

Art museum docents in MMT exercise
Training workshops allow educators to discover new ways of interpreting museum objects and craft meaningful museum experiences.


 

Training Workshops:
Three Variations of Facilitation

Museum Movement Techniques are appropriate for three groups of professionals with three different levels of skills: The museum educator, the classroom educator and the movement educator.

Workshops are designed to allow educators to experience techniques, museum object selection criteria and educational linking. Next educators craft experiences using techniques to meet their educational objectives. Follow up workshop provides additional coaching in "movement management" skills and support in tailoring MMT for museum collection and educational programming.

Museum Educators / Docents: Workshops

MMT Workshop enables museum educators to broaden their audience base by including the kinesthetic learner. Workshops are designed to allow educators to experience techniques and then craft experiences using MMT to meet their educational objectives.

Classroom Educators: Workshops

MMT Workshop develops an understanding of how kinesthetic learning strategies embellish educational objectives and provides an integrated arts learning experience. Emphasis is placed on meaningful connections between arts learning and curriculum connections.

Movement Educators: Workshops

MMT Workshop provides background understanding of important museum policy issues and educational philosophy. Emphasis is placed on MMT skills that elicit personal  movement interpretation of museum object.

DVD showcases training sessions at a variety of museums and shares comments from museum educators. Shelley Kruger Weisberg, creator of Museum Movement Techniques, is using a Table Rock-produced video to promote her program of on-site docent training.

Table Rock traveled to Ms. Weisberg’s home base of Williamsburg, VA to tape two-hour training sessions at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, the Newport News Mariners’ Museum, and Children’s Museum of Richmond. Her five-minute presentation on DVD uses a mix of training footage and extremely positive museum educator testimonials to make the case for including MMT’s brand of kinesthetic teaching in any museum’s children’s education program.
