Museum Studies Relationship between Courses and New Workshops
EXPLANATION OF TABLE: Table is meant as a map to help in designing the museum studies courses and workshops. Since all museum studies courses are 100% online, workshops are
intentionally built to provide a hands-on, face-to-face component. Museum studies lends itself to the physical and social and therefore it is important to provide opportunities to offer
students this sort of work. Some workshops (far right column) are either not directly linked to a course, overlap with a course, or are online.
Items in red are being submitted to the CC this round.
Items in blue have already been approved and are on the books.
Workshops in black font are in planning/creation phase (many are placeholders until ideas & adjuncts can be worked out).
Courses in parentheses are in development; workshops in black.
