The July MUSEUM EDUCATION MONITOR (MEM) will highlight ongoing work in museum education research, evaluation and resources related to science education and learning. Working in this area? I invite you to share your research with interested others around the world.
Listings by workers at all sites of informal learning (museums, galleries, science centres, parks, historic sites,etc.), consultants, faculty, and students at all levels of study are welcomed.
To assist with this, MEM continues to offer a one-year free subscription to any student in a museum-education related program, any museum volunter, an any museum educator who is currently unwaged. See http://www.mccastle.com/Public/MEM.aspx for details.
