Guide to Teaching from Collections

It is the mission of the Peabody Museum to support the responsible use of collections in university courses, and to make this experience meaningful and enriching for students and instructors alike.

The principles and suggestions offered in this guide are intended to help instructors devise effective teaching strategies when including collections in their classes, remaining mindful of our respective responsibilities to collections and their human relations.

This guide is directed primarily toward Harvard University Teaching Fellows and other instructors engaging their students directly with Peabody Museum collections in their courses, in the absence of Peabody Museum staff.
