Museum-ism

Exploring the future of museums


Audience Research Unit

http://australianmuseum.net.au/Audience-Research/
The Australian Museum Audience Research Unit undertakes a broad range of visitor research and evaluation projects. The objectives of the unit are to undertake and facilitate innovative research into visitor experiences and learning issues in museums generally; feed information into program development, policy and planning; publicise and disseminate research results and serve as a networking hub linking the Museum with other organisations, universities and research institutions that are undertaking research in complementary areas.



Personalities



Prof. Alex Halavais
New Youth City: Developing a Learning Network in New York
http://dmlcentral.net/projects/3658
Under the Digital Media and Learning initiative, Alex is working with a consortium of institutions creating mobile learning apps designed to connect to youth museum goers in new ways. The primary museums doing this are the Cooper Hewitt, Brooklyn Science, Bronx Zoo, and the AMNH. NYC Library and a number of others are in on it, as well, just not as directly. The mission of these institutions is really about education and learning. e.g. Mannahatta: The Game at http://themannahattaproject.org
