Place-Based Pedagogy for Higher Education—An Annotated Bibliography (Article)
Title: Place-Based Pedagogy for Higher Education—An Annotated Bibliography
Author: Jeffrey Partridge
Abstract: The Hartford Heritage Project is a place-based education (PBE) initiative. PBE takes the place where a school is located and incorporates it into the curriculum. Thus, museums, historical societies, parks, community centers, care facilities, local businesses, government agencies, and other valuable community resources become an extension of the classroom. This gives students a practical and local context for knowledge learned in their courses, and it makes the school a vital part of the life of the community. The following bibliography is intended as a resource for faculty and researchers.

Academic and Museum Collaborations: Teaching a Literature Course through Museums and Material Culture (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Academic and Museum Collaborations: Teaching a Literature Course through Museums and Material Culture
Author: James Golden
Author: Jeff Partridge
Author: Emily Waniewski
Abstract: Collaborations between college courses and museums provide powerful learning experiences that take students out of the classroom and into the material culture of the past. This session presents on an immersive place-based teaching collaboration in which a community college literature class was taught entirely on site at two local museums. The aim of this presentation is to convey the power of college-museum collaborations to transform the learning experience by taking students out of the classroom and into the material culture of the past. Capital Community College implemented a Place-Based Education initiative in 2011 with the help of the National Endowment for the Humanities that seeks to make Hartford an extension of the college campus by integrating museums, theatre, community centers, and other local resources into the curriculum of a variety of courses. The initiative, called the Hartford Heritage Project, has enabled strong collaborations between the college and local museums, which eventually spawned a unique, fully place-based literature course taught in the fall of 2015. English 220 Studies in American Literature—Stowe and Twain was taught entirely on site at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and the Mark Twain House & Museum. Students experienced in-depth and behind-the-scenes explorations of the houses of Stowe and Twain, current exhibits, and the libraries and archives of both museums. Planning and implementing the course required a close collaboration between staff members of both museums and the course instructor and presented challenges in scheduling, course content, approaches to literature and history, and assignment design. The presenters for this session will be the three principal members of the collaboration – the Program Coordinator of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, the Education Director of the Mark Twain House & Museum, and the English Professor from Capital Community College.
