History lesson in the Horniman Museum, London 1908
Learning is an active process. It can result in increased knowledge, skills and understanding, and can change perceptions and values. It can be social, playful, serious or solitary. Good learning is effortless and enjoyable, it inspires us to learn more and to share our learning with others.
I can work with you to create meaningful, memorable learning provision for all audiences, harnessing your organisation’s unique themes, collections and stories to create dialogue, feed curiosity and fire imaginations. I have a particular specialism in creating curriculum-linked provision across all age ranges and using collections to build skills in enquiry, creativity and critical thinking.
Whether it’s cross audience strategic programming or family workshops, participation projects or online resource for teachers, I can work with you to create provision which will engage and enthuse your learners.
