Traveling Exhibitions as Sites for Informal Learning: Assessing Different Strategies with Field Trips to Traveling Exhibitions at Non-Museum Sites
Harker, Richard J. W.; Badger, James
Journal of Museum Education, v40 n3 p268-277 2015
This study investigated the use of different pedagogical techniques to create an intellectually engaging experience for middle school students who visited a traveling exhibition from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum at a non-museum host site: the University of North Georgia Dahlonega's Library and Technology Center. The findings of this study show that traveling exhibitions hosted by libraries, community centers, and universities can provoke meaningful educational experiences for visiting school groups. It is recommended, however, that the parent museums provide the same substantial and thorough guidelines and materials for non-museum host sites and teachers as they do for their permanent, on-site exhibitions.
