Forskningspodden #102: Students’ art-based exploration of science in a third space
Research shows that due to contextual differences between museums and schools, teachers often find it difficult to adapt their teaching to museum settings. Therefore, there is a need for museums to develop and improve student experiences of school trips to their institutions.
Against this backdrop, museum educator and researcher Harald Raaijmakers has developed a museum programme which aims to bridge borders between educational contexts and school disciplines. Harald’s research aims at validating the programme and to analyse students’ aesthetic experiences and imagination in art-based exploration of science issues. In our conversation, Harald explains that elaborated museum-school partnerships can create a third space where science education becomes integrated with society and students’ lived experiences.
