What is Visible Thinking in the Museum (and how can it help me to engage my audience?)

Way back in 2011, I discovered the magic of thinking routines and Visible Thinking whilst working at a museum in Amsterdam.

It was at this point that I started developing a new approach for educators, what became Visible Thinking in the Museum or VTM for short.

Visible Thinking in the Museum is an easy-to-follow method that allows educators like you to confidently design and lead engaging inquiry-led sessions with art, objects and ideas for any audience. 

But what’s it all about? And why should you use it? Today we’re talking about the foundations, principles and practices of the VTM method and 8 ways it can help you to engage your audiences.
