The Fred Rogers Institute and Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh invite informal educators to connect on the topic of relationships and day-to-day interactions that matter most to them in their everyday work. Network with fellow informal learning educators and share practical ideas for building relationships with children, youth and families during this informal breakfast.
We will draw from a collaboration between the Fred Rogers Institute and Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh where we worked with three informal learning organizations – Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Allegheny County Library Association and Westmoreland Museum of Art – around the topic of relationships. Staff participated in Simple Interactions (www.simpleinteractions.org) workshops and did a deep dive into their own practice through projects inspired by the Simple Interactions approach. This project was funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
