Ashgate author Helen Chatterjee will be speaking about university partnerships and no doubt mentioning her new book Engaging the Senses: Object-Based Learning in Higher Education
Helen and co-editor Leonie Hannan discuss the use of museum collections as a path to learning and a new new pedagogy for higher education.
‘How can objects in museums and elsewhere be of value in higher education? This book is an invaluable, much needed extension of our understandings of object-centred learning into the tertiary level. Its thoughtful case studies demonstrate the role of objects – of myriad kinds – and multisensory, experiential engagements with them, in inspiring and enabling university students.’
Sandra Dudley, University of Leicester, UK
