Used as part of a holistic approach, thinking routines will transform the way you work with objects and with audiences in the museum.
Thinking routines have wonderful benefits for the participants in your guided tours and educational programmes.
But I also believe thinking routines are incredibly useful and beneficial tools for you too - as a museum educator, guide, docent or teacher.
And so today I’m going to focus on you - and I’m going to share some 6 key benefits you’ll get from working with these magical structures with art and objects.
I going to talk about why routines are beneficial, the importance of structure, the flexibility of routines, how they help you to master sharing information and improve your questioning technique. And finally I’m ending with probably the biggest benefit of all - so stay tuned for that one!
