Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum

Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, Músaem An Ghorta Mhóir, is home to the world’s largest collection of visual art, artifacts and printed materials relating to the Irish Famine. The museum is located at 3011 Whitney Avenue, near Quinnipiac’s Mount Carmel and York Hill campuses and is open to the public. Its collection focuses on the famine years from 1845–52, when blight destroyed virtually all of Ireland’s potato crops for consecutive years. The crop destruction, coupled with British governmental indifference to the plight of the Irish, who at the time were part of the United Kingdom, resulted in the deaths of more than 1 million Irish men, women and children and the emigration of more than 2 million to nations around the world. The 4,750-square-foot museum offers publications, lectures, concerts and other events designed to educate the general public, scholars, researchers, artists and students about the richness of Irish culture and the high quality of its visual arts in particular.

Quinnipiac University Science Teaching and Learning Center Funded by Bristol-Myers Squibb

The Quinnipiac University Science Teaching and Learning Center (QUeST-LC) is committed to bridging the gap between the research on science teaching and learning and the teaching practices used every day in science classrooms. The center helps passionate practitioners who critically reflect on their teaching practices and want to enhance their own classroom practices through two outreach programs.

Weekly workshops are designed to meet the needs of science teachers as they negotiate their understanding of how to implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The greatest leverage point for reaching students is highly prepared teachers. This format provides an opportunity for a greater, sustained impact on the education of Connecticut students.

QUeST-LC Hangout is a monthly collaboration designed to provided time and space for Connecticut science teachers to meet with colleagues to work on NGSS-based instructional units, NGSS-based assessments and implementation strategies. This four-hour block of time is designed to: support a “critical friends” collaboration, encourage an eagerness, energy and enthusiasm for meaningful science teaching, prevent teacher isolation as they work to enact NGSS in their classrooms, schools and school districts, and provide a safe, supportive space to negotiate the paradigm shift toward the NGSS.
