Ethel Villafranca

PhD Researcher, University of Melbourne

Museums curate the learning environment to facilitate student learning. Curated learning is a pedagogical approach that involves purposeful selection, manipulation, and use of objects and spaces within a learning environment to set up conditions for students’ deep learning. In this research, two case studies were conducted to draw out strategies for curated learning. This presentation discusses results of one case study focused on what and how museum educators use use spaces and objects within the museum to
facilitate student learning.
