Is Museum Education "Rocket Science"?
Dragotto, Erin; Minerva, Christine; Nichols, Michelle
Journal of Museum Education, v31 n3 p215-222 Fall 2006
The field of museum education has advanced and adapted over the years to meet the changing needs of audiences as determined by new research, national policy, and international events. Educators from Chicago's Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum provide insight into a (somewhat) typical museum education department, especially geared for readers who are outside the realm of museum education and who may be unfamiliar with expectations placed on educators. Finally, the authors suggest areas of focus that should be targeted by museum educators for them to remain current in a rapidly evolving field, and specific ways that institutions can support educators more fully.
