Product Type teaching material
Marketing Text The first time in the history of the Hungarian museum education a comprehensive handbook have been produced by 41 foreign and Hungarian authors. It provides theoretical and practical information and knowledge on planning, completing and evaluating museum activities which helps the work of school teachers. The handbook is planned to be published in 2010. There is no such handbook available either in Hungarian or Slovak languages. Besides serving the course described in R2, this handbook will be a valuable resource for museum educators in Hungarian speaking Central Europe.
The manual is the major teaching aid for our newly developed blended learning course – see R2. Blended learning methodology for this project means intensive museum practice sessions (workshops and hands-on practice at setting up and realising learning programs at exhibitions preceded / followed by e-mentoring.
The manual will contain examples of international best practice in the field. Our experienced partner, the Museum of Natural History in London and our affiliate partner, the Group for Museum Education and our Hungarian partner leading this stream, the Hungarian Museum of Natural History will showcase best projects, feature educational events from European and Hungarian museums, explains up-to-date learning methodology based on case studies of exhibitions and visitor survey results.
