Invisible pedagogies, according to author Andrea de Pascual, "is a concept that already existed before the collective, exploring education beyond the boundaries of the curriculum and considering pedagogical elements that hadn’t been addressed in the learning-teaching experience until now. Invisible pedagogies is the reflection upon the non-explicit micro-discourses that all-together form the macro-discourse that is the pedagogical act. And although they remain on a second level, they are likely to transform the body and soul of the participants involved in it." What do the things we do, the environment we set-up, and the materials we use mean to our visitors?
This Art Museum Teaching blog post examines the concept of Invisible Pedagogies, as well as some real-world examples of how institution's transformed them into more positive, clear experiences for their visitors.
