Katy Malone, McClung Museum
I am the Curator of Academic Programs at the McClung Museum and my job is, in part, to help faculty use the museum to enhance their course work. To allow them to teach with our collections as primary sources, I was able to digitize several of our materials, providing videos and images of objects. Some videos had narration for asynchronous learning, while most did not so the students could conduct their own analysis or the instructor could lead a conversation themselves.
I also started a series of How to Read an Object videos and provided other guidance to help with this analysis. I have guest lectured using these resources–either in real time or through recordings. Everything I have made has been built upon faculty request from instructors from across campus, and developed so that they can be utilized by many different subjects. All of this is helping to keep the museum and our materials available to our campus.
