Visual Thinking Strategies Workshop
Public Galleries Association of Victoria
When: SAVE THE DATE 23 - 24 October 2017

 

VISUAL THINKING STRATEGIES WORKSHOP

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is a powerful and exciting student-centred teaching methodology co-developed by cognitive psychologist Abigail Housen and veteran museum educator Philip Yenawine. VTS has been proven to strengthen students’ oral communications, literacy and creative and analytical skills among students of all ages. VTS uses facilitated discussion to practice respectful, democratic, collaborative problem-solving among students, which transfers to other classroom interactions and beyond.

 

In this two day program participants will themselves look carefully at selected artworks, talk about what they observe and be encouraged to support their interpretation with visual evidence. Through open-ended inquiry and engagement with visual art, listening to others and hands-on practical experiences participants will learn how to facilitate VTS in their own galleries, classrooms and communities.
