Wendy Woon: "Museum Education & Progressive Values in the Digital Age"
Today’s globalized culture demands creativity and continual innovation from individuals as well as institutions. How can museum education foster creativity, both for onsite visitors in our galleries and for online audiences? Examining the history of museum education reveals that we may build upon the values of the progressive education movement to inspire our practice and reinvigorate our strategic thinking about future programming and new initiatives. This is the fifth annual Samuel H. Kress Lecture in Museum Education, which is intended to further the study, understanding, and practice of museum education in the twenty-first century.
