Professional Enrichment

TMAG is a respected provider of workshops and professional enrichment opportunities for educators and community service professionals. These thematically-focused training and information sessions help professionals in the education and community service sectors to make the most of what the museum has to offer, and help to increase engagement with natural and cultural heritage.

Community input is also welcome. Please email any feedback or suggestions about TMAG’s role in educator professional learning to Kate Morris.

This year TMAG’s education staff will be hard at work developing the exciting new long term interactive Children’s Exhibition, opening in 2021, so we are offering a focused, highlights Learning Program for Term 4.  Any enquiries please get in touch.

Pre-service Teacher Workshops

In association with the University of Tasmania, TMAG offers pre-service teacher workshops for Bachelor of Education and Masters of Teaching students in how to get the most from visits to TMAG and TMAG resources. The workshops focus on museum teaching techniques and resources, including hands-on learning with objects. It ensures future school teachers and educators are skilled in making the best use of a school visit to the museum.

For information about existing sessions or to discuss organising a session please contact Kate Morris.
