Museum Education Study Tour London 2017

September 11-13 the AEJM will organise a museum education study tour to London, in close collaboration with the education department of the Jewish Museum London. Focusing on accessibility and inclusivity, we plan to visit over the course of 2.5 days a number of renowned national museums as well as smaller local institutions that work with inspiring programmes. Through these visits, we aim at familiarizing our group with the methodology of innovative learning programmes, as well as the with the development process of these projects.
