The University of Delaware Department of History
“Museum Education in a Digital Age: Using Technology to Expand Outreach”
The education department staff of Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and the Sea in Mystic, Connecticut, will conduct a virtual field trip to the UD History Department. They plan to discuss how their department uses digital technology to plan and implement virtual field trips in classrooms across the country, and how they engage with K-12 teachers to develop online content via their website "Mystic Seaport for Educators": http://educators.mysticseaport.org/.
The 2015-2016 academic year represents the fortieth year in which the Workshop serves as a regular part of the History Department life. Bring a lunch. All are welcome! For further information, please call (302) 831-2371.
First and second year History graduate students are required to attend so plan to make the History Workshop a regular part of your Tuesday activities.
