What support can teachers get at the Museum?
Our education team has developed student programs that are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and TfEL for each gallery.
Our Education Program Manager or volunteer Museum educators can take your class for a lesson in a gallery - subject to availability. These lessons are inquiry based and encourage student participation. Be advised, at present we have a small team and can only provide limited Museum educator-facillitated sessions which book out quickly. While we try our best to accommodate all bookings, it's best to book at least two weeks in advance.
The Education Program Manager can also provide Professional Development tours and workshops for groups of teachers. In addition, special professional learning events are held throughout the year. Request to join our mailing list to receive information about these and other special programs.
Downloadable programs are available for teachers to support students with self-guided tours around the Museum.
There are many ways to work with students in the galleries. See some of our ideas for working with students in a gallery.
