Have you ever thought about team-teaching a course at UF? Collaboration can energize our teaching just as it does our research. Through team-teaching, faculty are creating innovative undergraduate courses that would be impossible for a single faculty member to teach independently. Some of these courses collaborate across academic disciplines, while others collaborate with UF Libraries or the Harn Museum of Art. Some do both.
This workshop features two team-taught courses that collaborated with the Harn: Women Writers & Classical Myths, and What Makes a Monster. Learn more about team teaching in collaborative spaces and start planning your adventure. A follow-up workshop on the nuts and bolts of developing a team-taught class will be held on February 22nd, 2019.
Presenters: Marsha Bryant (Professor & Distinguished Teaching Scholar, English), Mary Ann Eaverly (Professor & Chair, Classics), Nina Stoyan-Rosenzweig (Senior Associate in Libraries, Health Science Center Libraries), Carol McCusker (Curator of Photography, Harn), Eric Segal (Director of Education and Curator of Academic Programs, Harn)
Organized by the UF Faculty/GA Development Events.
With more than 11,300 works of art the Harn Museum of Art offers faculty opportunities to help their students experience art, history and culture, sometimes in unexpected ways. The collections strengths focus on African, Asian, modern and contemporary art, and photography, but collections include Latin American art, Ancient American art, prints, works dealing with natural history subjects, and a range of other areas periods and themes. Browse the collections area of our site for more information. We offer class tours, assignment collaboration and up-close engagement with art, valuable to many disciplines.
Contact Education Curator of Academic Programs Eric Segal at 352.294.7063 or email@example.com to brainstorm how the Harn can help support your teaching and research.
Classes or groups may tour the museum during all hours of operation. Groups of 10 or more should make an appointment to ensure a successful experience and avoid conflicts with other touring classes.
Guided tours and presentations by Harn curators and staff can be organized to connect with your classroom objectives in virtually any discipline. Docent tours on general or specific topics can be arranged for groups of 10 or more and must be scheduled three weeks in advance. Tours in Spanish are also available.
Open your students up to the experience of studying objects first hand. Instructors may select works from the Harn’s extensive permanent collection for use by individuals and small groups in the museum’s object study rooms. This opportunity is open to all disciplines and allows for the direct examination of art to encourage understanding of diverse cultures, historical periods and materials. Browse our eMuseum database on the collections area of the Harn website to view a partial listing of objects.
Funds from the Dr. Madelyn M. Lockhart Endowment for Focus Exhibitions support creative collaboration between UF faculty and the Harn. We work with faculty to develop small art exhibitions emphasizing research and teaching interests of the faculty member.
The Harn Museum of Art offers a number of resources, including access to the Bishop Study Center, a library offering books, magazines, newspapers, videos and additional references for use in the facility. Instructors are also invited to register for the Harn Museum Educator Resources Program, which allows the short-term loan of videos, literature and curriculum support materials free of charge.
We are eager to connect with faculty in all disciplines--whether in Art History; English; History; Languages; Literatures and Cultures; Medicine; Pharmacy; Physics; Psychology, Veterinary Medicine; or any area--to support their teaching and research. Contact Education Curator of Academic Programs Eric Segal at 352.294.7063 or firstname.lastname@example.org to brainstorm how the Harn can help support your teaching and research.
At the conclusion of our visit I found the students excited to take today’s lessons and apply them to their own works. As an instructor, I know that today’s visit supports my teaching in a meaningful way and am certain the visit will be a highlight of the semester.
