Educators and Docents

Teacher's Edition logo

The "Teacher's Edition" is not the only "book" section of this Lynx website.  Another is the "Docent Manual," found under the Collaborate menu in the navigation bar.  The "Docent Manual" offers training materials for docents about the current exhibit, the history of science, and general logistics, procedures and policies.  Yet the interests and activities of docents and educators overlap considerably.  Indeed, one of the benefits of participating in Lynx Open Ed is this interaction between educators and docents.  

In particular, many educators may find the "Docent Manual" relevant to perspectives on exhibit-based education.  See, for instance, the brief essays there on "The Discovery Pathway" (which articulates a perspective on participatory exhibit design) and "History of Science."
