Description The Global Learning Studio is an international professional development opportunity for classroom teachers, museum educators, arts specialists, curriculum leaders, administrators and teaching artists from schools and community-based arts organizations. Taking advantage of an international location is often mentioned as a central component of our schools’ missions and objectives. Putting this goal into practice in the classroom, however, is an opportunity we often miss. How can we use an international context to deepen our students’ understanding and enrich the curriculum? The Global Learning Studio is intended for non-arts teachers as well as practitioners and educators of visual art, music, drama and dance. The arts will be used as a creative, hands-on entry point to explore how understanding is developed in various disciplines and in cross-disciplinary contexts. Using cultural landmarks such as Tate Modern, the British Museum and the Museum of London, participants explore the nature of disciplinary understanding and effective tools for examining student learning.
