MetadataShow full item record
Education has become a priority in the museum world. The importance of museum and school partnerships has been emphasized as a good way to encourage effective learning. However, between museum educators and teachers, unfamiliarity with each other’s environments and logistical problems such as time and money are obstacles to successful collaboration. The purpose of this study is to discover effective and practical strategies for collaboration between the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and high schools in the Eugene School District 4J. The main research questions are: How might the museum and high schools collaborate in educational programs? How do art teachers utilize museums’ resources? This master’s project will help to enrich art education in Eugene by providing valuable recommendations for museum-school relationships.
