Resources for Remote Teaching
For the safety of our visitors and staff, the Kelsey Museum will not be able to offer in-person experiences for the Fall 2020 semester. However, we are able to support remote learning through several online resources. These include:
- a live PowerPoint presentation over Zoom that recreates tours in the galleries
- images and information about objects in our collection for teaching purposes
- digital versions of some experiential learning activities (Interrogating the Object, Burial Boxes, Reading Latin Inscriptions, and Provenance, Provenience, and Problems).
Please contact our Education Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more and to plan your experience with us. If you would like a live Zoom presentation, we do ask that you please schedule this no less than three weeks in advance to allow our staff time to prepare.
In addition, the Kelsey is now part of the new Online Resources from the University of Michigan Museums. This website, which can be accessed through U-M's Online Teaching page, is a hub where educators can find links to digital collections and other online resources available from U-M's many museums and special collections. Educators can mine these rich collections for materials to use in their courses, or reach out to a museum staff member who can help them craft remote learning experiences.
Resources for Onsite Teaching
There are many ways for you and your students to become involved with the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. We offer interesting and educational tours, programs, and activities for university classes and K–12 school groups. Please follow the links below to learn more:
When you visit the Kelsey and pay a fee for a program, tour, workshop, or class, every dollar goes to the development of educational programming and resources for students and the community. Thank you for your support!
We offer accessible programs for all students visiting the Kelsey Museum. If anyone on your tour (students, teachers, aides, chaperones) needs an accommodation, please contact us so that we can make sure you have the best possible experience.
