Wright Museum staff are available to assist faculty with integrating museum objects and learning strategies into their course curriculum. Some of the resources that the Wright can provide include:
- Guided tours of galleries and collections storage areas.
- Assistance with identifying objects useful to a faculty member's teaching needs. This includes the creation of finding aids such as binders, CDs, and/or CONTENTdm web pages.
- Access to a small acquisition fund to purchase teaching tools for the Wright's hands-on education collection. Click here to download more information about acquiring objects for teaching and for reimbursement instructions.
- Supervision of student special projects in collections research, museum education, or exhibition development/curation.
