Teachers and other education professionals should utilise museums as valuable educational tools, communities and learning spaces. The Learning in a Museum course explores the educational value and potential of present-day museums for learning. The course investigates strategies educators can use to plan, implement and evaluate learning in a museum, and more generally transform their students’ museum experiences into connected, engaging, and integrated activities which lead to their intellectual growth.

Throughout the course, participants will:

- discuss the meaning of museum learning and how to set the stage for it
- review the learning-in-a-museum competences and evaluate strategies for currently working within them
- creatively adapt museum learning to educational projects and design active tasks for museum learning


The course is organised around the principle of peer learning, with course content designed to stimulate reflection and discussion so that participants can learn from each other’s experiences and ideas. In order to complete the course, you are required to submit a final course product and review your peers’ work.

The course is based on Daniela Bunea’s eTwinning Learning Event “Learning in a Museum”.

It was very useful and intetesting. I wish I had more time to experiment the many tools there suggested. Very nice to compare and get in touch with many other teachers from different Countries. Ida Maiellato
