The Chipstone Curator has a teaching appointment in Art History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2013, the Foundation expanded this role to include other collaborations. The current Chipstone Curator team-taught a large undergraduate course on Tangible Things with Prof. Laurel Ulrich at Harvard University. This course is also the foundation for an interdisciplinary book to be published by Oxford University Press. They created an innovative version of the course online through HarvardX, a division of EdX, to make the program available for free to students around the world. The goal of this collaboration is to teach students of all ages how to look closely at and find meaning in material things.
