In Module 4 we will be discussing the socio-cultural dimensions of institutions, moving beyond the nominal definition of them as organizations housed in buildings, to a socio-cultural definition in which institutions include all types of socially constructed organizations: families, museums, schools, communities, and society. Some of the questions we will discuss include: How do groups, communities and societies use and appropriate the resources of free-choice learning institutions to support their “institutional” needs, interests and identities? How have cultural institutions historically supported/inhibited the socio-cultural dimensions and outcomes of learning? What strategies and approaches have they employed to try to be socio-culturally relevant? Our special guest is Laura Huerta Migus, who took the helm as executive director of the Association of Children's Museums (ACM) this past June. Prior to that, Laura was Director of Professional Development and Inclusion Initiatives at the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) where she previously also held the position of Director of Equity and Diversity. Laura also served on the staff at ACM from 2004-2006, as a program officer for education and operations. Laura Huerta Migus is a nonprofit professional with more than a decade of experience in professional development, technical assistance, and grant management with a special emphasis on informal learninglearning.environments and community change efforts. She is currently working with institutions nationally to help them become more culturally competent and responsible so that they can be effective change agents in their communities. I think it will be a great conversation!
Jerry Downs is my guest for Live Your Music on 02/11/15.
Jerry Downs is an artist, photographer, and writer who lives 10 miles North of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Rafael, California. His work has appeared throughout the world in books, magazines and museums.
Jerry was born the 5th of 11 children, had a horrible time in school and spent a large part of his life living hand to mouth trying to make a living and make sense of why he was born. Eventually he stopped trying so hard. Everything that has happened in his life has helped him understand that life is a creative act and joy is the only measure of success. Jerry is happy to be alive and enormously appreciative that anything exists at all.
During the show I'll be talking with Jerry about his photography, his art, and his book Why You Were Born – which is about remembering the wonder we knew as children and how great it is to remember.
