The schools audience
A range of resources about museum experiences from a students' perspective
When we consult young people and treat them seriously, whether designing the learning spaces, the organization of the learning, or the learning experiences, it is possible to develop a product or process that will have greater relevance for them and one with which they will wish to engage. Designing for learning must not only relate to re-conceptualising places and spaces when developing or redeveloping facilities and programs, but equally importantly, re-examining old and sometimes “tired” learning environments that are antithetical to transformative learning, which is the type of learning that the Australian Museum seeks to achieve.
The Audience Research Unit has participated in a range of projects wth students and young people which have been published - more information and links are on the right-hand side of this page.
