    Modules

    This course consists of two modules:

      This module provides an cultural theoretical background of museums, innvolving theories about the social role of museums, concepts about the museum as a physical and virtual learning space, as well as methods of museum education. Another focus is on the educational impacts of museum exhibitions. Museums, and their relation to school curricula, are discussed as educational resources.

      The second module focuses on the pedagogical and didactical decisions that can enhance learning and Bildung in museums. Ways of creating a learning setting for a special target group are explored through design work. Different perspectives on educational museum development, such as accessibility, diversity and value base, are discussed in relation to a designed educational resource.
