Asia Art Archive welcomes educator Caroline Yee Ka Lin to our Residency Programme.
During her residency, Yee will explore inquiry-based learning and creativity through art education by making use of AAA Collections. Yee believes the focus of art and education in the twenty-first century will be on fostering students’ creativity and innovation. Targeting pre-service teachers and new teachers who wish to develop their creative teaching skills, Yee will introduce arts- and learning-based pedagogies through archival resources.
