Multimodal Approaches to Learning International Conference, October 26-28, 2012, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Organized by Art Beyond Sight and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Since 2005 this conference has become a forum for cross-disciplinary creative thinking and the exchange of ideas. We will continue to foster dialogue between such diverse disciplines as neuroscience, cognitive psychology, education, museum studies, disability and cultural studies, technology, architecture, product design, and media art. Conference participants and organizers aim to define a framework for engaging diverse audiences through multimodal experiences, and identify new trends and innovation in learning and museum practice.
The trademark of this conference has been its diverse cross-disciplinary audience that includes: Museum staff, art educators, teaching artists, special education teachers, therapists, new media artists, researchers, computer engineers and technology specialists, Universal Design advocates, architects, exhibit, and product designers, and graduate students.
