How can you help facilitate student learning at a museum? The Beaty Biodiversity Museum (http://beatymuseum.ubc.ca/) contains a wide variety of specimens and information, which can be catered to learners of all ages. Knowing we can't have a face-to-face tour this year, join us for a tour of our virtual exhibitions and resources, including the History Alive! award-winning Perspectives on Biodiversity - Sturgeon Knowledge Web (https://www.canadashistory.ca/awards/governor-general-s-history-awards/award-recipients/2019/perspectives-on-biodiversity-sturgeon-harpoon-knowledge-web) On this 60-minute virtual tour and discussion, appropriate for teachers of all subjects, grades and ages, you will explore strategies to utilize First Peoples and Biodiversity-themed museum resources as part of your teaching plan.
Learn about our digital exhibitions, resources, collections, programs, and more! Though we will focus on the Beaty Museum's collection, many of the ideas we explore will apply to other museums and field trip sites. We encourage you to ask lots of questions, and invite you to explore the museum at a later date for no charge with your teacher ID (http://beatymuseum.ubc.ca/teachers).
This virtual offering will be available on ZOOM with registration, or as a live video on the Beaty Museum's facebook page. Available to all!
All Grades K-12
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum's interpretive team have backgrounds in science, communication, and informal education. They will help cater the session to the group, answering your questions along the way. Interpreters lead the museum's K-12 programming and have a wealth of first hand field trip knowledge to share with you.
