Curators on the Couch Series – Teacher PD
Join MoAD staff for the Curators on the Couchseries, as we discuss objects from our collection in greater detail, telling additional stories to help bring the objects and their owners to life.
Designed for use by teachers as professional development, these interviews unpack objects which align with content in the Australian Curriculum. Teachers understanding of these objects will be enriched further, preparing them to use the objects in classroom discussions with their students.
Senator Neville Bonner
The first of our series looks at Senator Neville Bonner, our first Indigenous Federal Parliamentarian, and a selection of his personal objects which are currently on display in the Finders Keepers Exhibition here at MoAD. MoAD Learning staff interview Senior Historian Libby Stewart and discover some interesting personal stories, showing how an object can reveal but also hide a lot of information.
This interview supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.
This exhibition is also supported by a teacher pdf resource for use in the classroom, Neville Bonner resource.
