About “One Good Thing”
“One Good Thing” is a series of face-to-face professional development opportunities developed by EdCom, in which participants explore a single specific education-related program/topic at various host institutions. In each session, participants will be able to learn about best practices for designing and implementing museum education-related programs (e.g. onsite education programs, exhibitions, public programs, outreach programs, virtual programs) through discussion and participation. Participants will:
- Learn about the programs from conceptualization to implementation from a range of perspectives
- Actively engage in the program experience
- Explore, discuss and analyze related research-based best practices, and brainstorming strategies for implementation or adaptation at their own institutions.
