NIMC Training Programme 2019-2020 are holding Supporting the Primary School Curriculum session with trainers that include staff and students from Stranmillis University College. 

Date: 23 October 2019

Venue: NI War Memorial

Cost: £70 members/ £110 non-members

Details: Museums and their collections can inspire and foster learning.  Museums traditionally support formal schools-based learning, but it is good to stop and connect to teaching practitioners to ensure that the plans and developments are fit for purpose.  The emphasis should be on active hands-on discovery-based learning rather than teaching facts.

This session is a useful check in for those who have been developing and delivering curriculum-based learning sessions for some time as well as for those new to such workshop development.   The day offers the opportunity to network with colleagues within the local museum sector as well as engaging with staff and students from a teacher training college.
