As educational institutions, museums are stewards of the visitor learning process, responsible for encouraging individual cognitive growth by facilitating new discoveries, nurturing discussion, and offering opportunities for reflection. As a result of attending this workshop, participants will leave with a greater understanding of how visitors learn in museums as well as concrete techniques for supporting visitor learning processes.
Museum educator Lisa Marcinkowski June will begin the workshop with a brief explanation of the learning processes that all adults engage in during their visits to history museums, namely recalling, meaning making, and puzzling. Participants will learn why each process is critical to the formation of long-term learning, as well as how they relate to each other. Marcinkowski June will share data from her dissertation research that illustrates what these different processes look and sound like coming from museum visitors.
