GEM ReachOut Project
Museums, Learning, Conflict and Resolution
Our Learning and Engagement Officer, Shannen Lang, is working in collaboration with Emily Elsworth, Learning Assistant at the Royal Armouries, to conduct a research project into museums and learning. The project has been granted support from GEM (Group for Education in Museums) Yorkshire.
Shannen and Emily said;
“We are delighted to be granted support from GEM to undertake research into the how the First World War Commemorations have impacted on formal education sessions offered by museums. We aim to identify models of best practice and provide practical solutions to the teaching and learning of conflict and resolution nationally and internationally that museums can learn from. This is also a collaboration between The Peace Museum and Royal Armouries learning teams, an endeavour that will continue our respective organisations commitment to best practice and ensuring our teaching remains relevant to our audiences.”
The research will involve undertaking site visits locally, nationally and internationally to seek out examples of best practice.
