Teaching with Collections at the CRC and St Cecilia's Hall

Teaching with Collections has kicked off at the Centre for Research Collections and St Cecilia’s Hall, enabling hands-on and experiential learning for students. 

Teaching with Collections at CRC

Academic staff can book a seminar room and request a list of items to be used for in-person, hybrid or remote delivery of seminars. The technology and flexible set up of our spaces means students who are unable to attend in person can still participate in class.    This semester courses include Chinese Literature 4A, Print Culture and the Environment: Edinburgh, London and Philadelphia 1710-1814, The Global Renaissance and Picturing Science in Premodern Manuscripts and Printed Books, Geography in the Archive and Landscapes of Empire.   

Professional collections staff deliver a diverse range of academic modules. These include Music and its Instruments, MMus Research Methods, Drawn from the City, BMus Introduction to Musicology, Collections: Theories, Practices and Methods and Medicine and Society.    In addition to delivering teaching, collections staff provide advice to academic staff regarding course content and opportunities.   

For more information regarding our services, please contact is-crc@ed.ac.uk. Bookings for Semesters 1 and 2 remain open.
