Event Details

Registration is open until April 4 and is first come, first served.

Facilitator: Shari Tishman

Cost includes book Slow Looking: The Art and Practice of Learning Through Observation

Slow looking is a way of building knowledge. It involves purposefully looking beyond a first glance, and it happens anywhere people take a generous amount of time to observe the world closely— in laboratories, in museums, in Pre-K through college classrooms, in backyard gardens, and on neighborhood walks. In this interactive workshop, Project Zero researcher Shari Tishman presents ideas featured in her latest book, Slow Looking: The Art and Practice of Learning Through Observation. Through activities and discussion, the workshop makes an argument for the special relevance of slow looking in today’s educational climate. It shows how slow looking can be an engaging practice across the curriculum, helping students of all ages develop insights and understandings that aren’t possible through high-speed means of information delivery. The workshop takes place at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and participants will have the opportunity to try out some slow looking themselves in the museum’s galleries. Educators from all disciplines, of all ages, and from all settings are welcome to attend.
