Hudson Hill, Shiralee – Journal of Museum Education, 2020
Art has the power to activate learning and emotion in unique ways--this is true of humans generally, and museum visitors specifically.

Moore, Sabrina; Roche, Joseph; Bell, Laura; Neenan, Emer Emily – Journal of Museum Education, 2020
The growth of the Maker Movement has had a profound impact on museum education, particularly in science centers and museums that have established Maker Spaces, Fab Labs, or Tinkering Studios.

Hoffman, Jeremy S. – Journal of Museum Education, 2020

Hamilton, Pat; Christian Ronning, Evelyn – Journal of Museum Education, 2020
Informal learning leading to collective action around climate change continues to be controversial and piecemeal. Given the positionality of museums as public-facing institutions that address topics of social, scientific, and historical significance, we argue that the museum should be a key convener of discussions around climate change. Utilizing…
