Dear MAE members,

Perhaps you’ve heard about the museum education, evaluation and tech day (MEET) to be held on 21 May at the National Australian Maritime Museum, prior to the Museums Australia 2015 annual conference? The day will provide a great opportunity to bring together Australia’s experts in education, evaluation, and the digital to explore the intersections between these areas.

You can find more information about the day here: http://goo.gl/wnjgkC

We hope the day will be dynamic and participatory and so invite you to attend the day and consider proposing a ‘lightning talk’ (either a 3 minute presentation or a 7 minute presentation) that speaks to some aspect of education, evaluation or digital as it relates to your work.

We’re asking participants to frame their talk within one of these three key areas:
-          I have a big idea
-          I have problem
-          I have something I need help with

We’re looking forward to a valuable and exciting set of presentations that help shape the dialogue and debate in the afternoon sessions of the MEET day and further into the main conference (and beyond).

If you’re interested in presenting a lightning talk please email Angela Casey angela.casey@nma.gov.au with a lightning talk title and a brief outline of your proposed presentation. The committee will aim to select a range of talks that represent education, evaluation and digital. We’ll also supply a presentation template for speakers to use.

Conference attendees can register for the day via the Museums Australia conference conlog site: www.ma2015.org.au

Those who are not attending the main conference but would like to participate in the MEET day can do so by registering via our Event Brite site: http://goo.gl/a1iMFB

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Regards,

Angela Casey
Learning Services Manager
Learning Services and Community Outreach

On behalf of Chair of MAE (Museums Australia Education); Chair of EVR (Evaluation and Visitor Research) and Chairs of MuseTech.

This special edition of the Journal of Artistic and Creative Education ( JACE) edited by Purnima Ruanglertbutr brings together authors from across Australia discussing issues central to the ongoing development and importance of education within museums. What are the distinctive characteristics and significance of museum education? How does learning occur in museums and what does it look like? Who is engaged in museum education and where does it take place? What are some of the benefits of museum education? This edition explores these broad questions through nine articles that individually address the role of museum learning as providing a transformative experience in a rich, ‘ hands-on’ and diverse environment. The authors present a wide array of case studies and examples from their institutions and their research, providing practical and invigorating discussions on the purpose, pedagogy and practice of museum education.

Angela Casey from the National Museum of Australia, Chris Nobbs from the South Australian Museum and Cameron Hocking from Melbourne Museum will chat about technologies they have been using with students in their museum settings. Participants will be invited to ask questions and perhaps share their experiences.

Louise Zarmati was awarded her doctorate in History pedagogy and practice in Australian museums in 2012. Her research took place in nine history museums in Australia and her thesis pointed to a disconnect between theory and practice.
You can help us interview Louise through this Google Hangout to explore museum teaching and learning theory and practice in Australia.
