Program Description: Artifacts and works of art provide inspiration and fresh points of entry into the reflection activities that are critical for students' learning experience at LUC. In this session, participants will explore Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) exhibits and the May Weber Collection as a resource for reflection across the disciplines. These collections and exhibits are available to faculty as teaching and learning resources, both in the gallery setting as well as in the classroom as visiting objects or online images. Session participants will engage in inquiry-based activities that support reflection on social justice themes, such as diversity and difference; identity and community; and giving and receiving. Participants will have the opportunity to consider what connections they can make between their course materials and the rich collections and exhibits offered on campus, opening up their students to this engaging avenue for reflection.
