Faculty Collaborations with Sheldon Museum of Art

Engaging Students Through Art

Date: Time: 2:00 pm–3:30 pm
Contact: Eric French, (402) 472-6037,
Looking at, discussing, and analyzing works of art helps students in all fields apply concepts they are learning in the classroom, explore multiple perspectives, and think and see critically. Learn about the Sheldon Museum of Art and how you can incorporate art and/or the museum to further your teaching goals. Sheldon staff will discuss the museum’s collection, exhibitions, and other resources, as well as ways we have collaborated with faculty to design learning experiences tailored to their curricular needs. Three faculty members will then share how—and why—they have incorporated Sheldon into their own classes and how their students have benefited from engagement with art. The last 30 minutes of the session will include an (optional) opportunity to workshop ideas for including art into your Spring 2021 or future courses.

This workshop is for everyone, but especially those seeking to help develop students’ critical thinking and visual literacy skills, explore multiple perspectives, approach course material from a different point of view, introduce students to an important resource on campus, get out of the classroom, and/or see and experience something new.
