On March 16 and 17th, the Celebration of Teaching and Learning took place in NYC. More than 10,000 educators came to share their experiences, learn something new, and participate in workshops. The Rubin Museum had a table with resources (and of course a stuffed Yak) in the exhibitor halls.
I was able to be there on Friday for most of the afternoon. While there, I met a great variety of education professionals-many already connected to the Rubin Museum. One of the greatest connections was hearing from many educators that they had come to the Rubin Museum after finding out about us at last years Celebration of Teaching and Learning! I also met a teacher was involved with the Rubin’s residency program at Riker’s Island and a teacher from the East-West School of International Studies whose class also participated in a residency a few years ago. Both teachers spoke strongly of these experiences even though they were not recent.
The students from the East-West School of International Studies created a stop-motion of the Birth of Buddha in their residency. The teacher informed me that it could be found on you tube- and here it is: Birth of Buddha
Many great connections were made this year at the Celebration of Teaching and Learning and I look forward to seeing where they go!
