With a focus on growth after the pandemic, four museums actively engaged in West Midlands Museum Development funded action research to explore how each setting could enhance their education offers and reinvigorate how schools engage with museum services. After shaping a bespoke question of enquiry each setting began their learning journey, supported by Rebecca Bell, Creative Teaching and Learning Consultant and Director of Integrate Education.

This event is all about sharing that learning. The victory narratives and the pitfalls will inspire a sharing of ‘top tips’, approaches, tools, and activities with a particular focus on developing a Teacher/ Educator network group and innovating in the planning, delivery and promotion of ‘extra-ordinary’ school workshops.

What’s in it for you?
This day will involve practical workshops and experiences with a focus on ‘learning by doing’ as each museum shares its wisdoms. The four workshops of the day will be diverse in their content and offer a range of insights that will appeal to any delegate aiming to:

  • Position themselves as a rich resource for curriculum development and innovation in primary schools
  • Consult effectively with key stakeholders and shape programmes that are leading the way for schools, and robustly meeting their needs
  • Innovate in their practice and offer creative and brain friendly learning workshop experiences that go above and beyond what any school could offer their learners

What’s on the agenda?
The day will include workshops exploring stakeholder engagement, teacher networks and implementing a drama and Narrative Immersion approach.

  • Engaging teachers in a quality professional development network (Warwickshire Heritage Learning)
  • Teacher networks; marketing, recruitment and engagement (Rugby Art Gallery and Museum)
  • Drama as a powerful pedagogic approach in schools and museums (Brampton Museum, Gallery and Park)
  • Inspiring quality engagement and outcomes for young people using the Narrative Immersion approach (Soldiers of Shropshire Museum)

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Maximum two delegates per organisation. Priority will be given to delegates from non-NPO and non-National museums in the West Midlands which are Accredited or officially Working Towards Accreditation.
