Private views and guided tours of your museum, gallery or historic site in twilight times are a good way of letting local teachers know what learning resources are available to them. Providing refreshments and free teachers notes generates good will and, hopefully, class visits.
Teachers forums, especially if you are putting together a new programme of work, are a good way of discussing ideas and getting feedback from teachers. Again it is best to have these late afternoon and to provide refreshments as well as a focused agenda and objectives.
