MacLellan, Justin; Callary, Bettina; Young, Bradley W. – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
The art of teaching students has parallels with coaching athletes (Jones, 2007). Research has indicated that adult athletes, termed masters athletes (MAs), feel that coaches should orient their approaches differently when working with them as opposed to younger athletes (Callary, Rathwell, & Young, 2015; Ferrari, Bloom, Gilbert, & Caron,…

Zhu, Yidan – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
Participatory action research (PAR), as a research methodology, challenges conventional, positivist, and scientific approaches. Recent adult education studies on PAR have explored how to develop PAR to enhance research practice and further the "democratizing aims of adult education" (Joyappa & Martin, 1996). Historically, as a part…

Cooper, John E. C. – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
The examination of a mid-18th-century biography about a significant developer of Ojibwe and Cree-based syllabics is the starting point for an interrogation of socio-historical cultural cohesion in Canada. The textual creole of syllabics, used widely in business and commerce, provides clues to the dynamics of cross-cultural linguistics. In this…

Keenlyside, Emily Grace – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
The role of art museum educator has shifted from presenter of information to facilitator of dialogue. But as art museums pledge to be more accountable to--and representative of--a plurality of publics and narratives, what is spoken about with visitors? Given revolving temporary exhibitions and expanded readings of permanent collections, guides…

Drenth, Monica – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
This essay explores the ways that museums educate adults, and reveals that, as cultural educators, museums have the ability to promote hegemonic stories through their displays. I discuss these ideas through my visits to two museums in Atlanta, Georgia, USA: the Atlanta History Centre and the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History.…

Originally developed by the Tate Modern in London, the exhibition travelled to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, in early 2018. When we visited the exhibition, we intended to study how…

Johnson, Kay – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
Museums as colonial institutions are filled with the tensions and contradictions of competing discourses. This makes them complex sites of public pedagogy and informal adult education and learning. But they are also becoming important spaces of counter-narrative, self-representation, and resistance as Indigenous artists and curators intervene, and…

Through a guided tour of the Alex Janvier exhibition at the Glenbow Museum, a review of additional artifacts associated with the exhibition, and autoethnographic texts, we have come to see the deep potential of public institutions…

Lee, Hong; Kang, Dae Joong; Kim, Seungeun – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
Seeing the museum as a public space for adult learning and education is not new, but always requires a contesting perspective when it comes to the continuing socio-political and historical oppression from colonial experiences. This paper explores the process of building a new history museum in South Korea that had suffered from Japanese colonial…

Chipangura, Njabulo – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
Exhibitions in museums are increasingly becoming popular public pedagogical strategies that engage with stories of social struggles faced by certain communities. In this paper, I will look at how we at Mutare Museum used an exhibition on diamond mining--the research, the design, and the production--to create a public forum for dialogue and…

The purpose of this article is to share highlights of a professional development workshop aimed at helping museum educators build capacity for difficult dialogues on race with adults.

Spring, Lauren; Wunderlee, Alice; Werhun, Andrea – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2019
Sex workers have long served as muses for some of the world's best-known artists. Though we see these women, exposed in various states of undress, on the walls of many of the world's most famous museums, they remain relatively anonymous. Visitors who stop to read the panels accompanying these works are rarely encouraged to reflect on questions…
