The Teaching Fellows Program trains highly motivated undergraduate students to lead Guided School Visits. The program comprises an intensive year of training, followed by one to two years of teaching in the galleries. In 2014–15, training sessions will take place bi-weekly on Fridays from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. These sessions are led by staff members and focus on highlights of the permanent collection and important issues in museum pedagogy. Teaching Fellows will also conduct independent research at the Frick Art Reference Library, attend Frick Connection evening courses, shadow experienced guides on weekday mornings, practice dialogical teaching, and go on fieldtrips to neighboring museums. Beyond receiving the equivalent of a course in museum education and a teaching practicum, Teaching Fellows will find community at the Frick and receive compensation, as well as validation for their dedication to gallery teaching. This is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate art history students seeking a pathway toward a career in museum education.
Applications will be accepted at the beginning of the fall semester. When available, application instructions will be posted on the Careers page.
