About the Teagle Collaborative Project

Beginning in fall 2016, the Teagle Collaborative Project, “Teaching and Learning with Museum Exhibitions”, supported by a grant from The Teagle Foundation, has allowed faculty members and museum staff at Colgate University, Hamilton College, Skidmore College, and the University at Albany to collaborate in developing, documenting, and assessing innovative approaches to museum-based teaching and learning. Faculty in more than one hundred courses across almost thirty departments have taught with numerous exhibitions at their campus museums. Many of the curricular innovations were based on This Place, an exhibition of photographs by artists working in Israel and the West Bank that was shared among the four museums in Spring 2018.

The wide range of disciplines represented in this project includes mathematics, environmental studies, gender studies, political science, history, anthropology, religious studies, languages and literatures, theater, dance, and studio art, among others.
