what will the museum of the future be like?
April 9, 2012
Are you currently doing research or evaluation related to adults and elders in museums, galleries, heritage sites, parks, zoos, aquaria, or other sites of informal learning?
This might include work on guided tours, field trips, demonstrations, workshops, performing arts events, symposia, film series, lectures, teacher workshops, collaborative programs, community services, outreach, Elderhostel, reminiscence work, certificate programs, book groups ...
If so, MUSEUM EDUCATION MONITOR (MEM), the monthly e-newsletter, invites you to list your work in our upcoming April 2012 Adults & Elders issue. As always, we welcome listings by museum workers, consultants, faculty, and students at all levels of study. To assist with this research, MEM continues to offer complimentary subscriptions including access to the extensive MEM Archives to students and unwaged museum educators. Details at http://www.mccastle.com .
To share research or evaluation with others around the world, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes:
- name of project
- research question(s) [no more than 50 words, please]
- how the data will be presented
- principal researcher(s)/ evaluator(s)
- site(s) where research is being conducted
