This one day Museums Association conference will look at the latest understanding of how adults and children learn, examine historical perspectives on the pedagogical role of museums and assess how museum learning might work in the future.
Advances in pedagogy, the progression of digital innovation and capital investment, and developments in socially engaged practice have all had significant impacts on cultural learning in the last two decades.
This one day conference will ask…
- How has museum learning developed and how are museums responding to demographic, economic and societal change?
- How can museums reach out to their communities most effectively?
- What new models of practice can museums learn from?
- Do we need to decolonise museum learning to take into account different cultural models?
- What do communities, teachers and educators want and need from museums?
- How can we make learning and engagement central to our museums?
This event is for anyone working in learning and engagement for museums, galleries and heritage sites.
