Museum of Anthropology educator Tina Smith, Education chair Mary Lynn Redmond and MOA director Stephen Whittington presented “Linking Cultures and Languages through Visual Learning” at the Visual Learning: Transforming the Liberal Arts conference held at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn.
The presentation focused on the value of the MOA’s databases for teaching a variety of subjects, from K-12 social studies to undergraduate foreign languages.
Visual Learning: Transforming the Liberal Arts offered visionary lectures and speculative conversations, as well as hands-on sessions highlighting successful assignments, faculty-staff partnerships, exhibitions, and performances. Stretching over two days, the conference — held in the Weitz Center for Creativity, Carleton’s new center for interdisciplinary arts collaboration — addressed topics ranging from the theoretical to the practical.
