Professional Development Opportunities
The Fowler Museum is committed to strengthening global arts and humanities education, serving as a resource for all educators in the Los Angeles area and beyond. In addition to developing curriculum guides to complement major exhibitions, the Fowler Museum hosts a three-day Teacher Institute each summer. The Teacher Institute examines a new topic each year, using project-based learning methods as the framework for further inquiry into global arts.
More information and program registration for the 2019 Teacher Institute will be posted as soon as it is available.
Additional professional development opportunities, including special workshops with guest facilitators, will also be posted as they become available.
