Learning and Teaching in Public Spaces

This is a national collaborative exchange project between universities and museums to engage post-secondary Humanities and Education students in experiential learning and citizenship 2011 – 2013. The project was initiated by PPI member Dr. Karen Charman.

This ambitious project partnered with a number of universities and museums/libraries across Victoria, NSW and Queensland.

Each site is working with a curriculum designed to embed post-secondary students in a museum and or library space.

The exciting challenge of this curriculum model is the capacity for adaptation from tertiary preparation programs at Victoria University and Deakin University to pre-service teacher education courses at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Charles Sturt University (CSU).

Welcome to the Public Pedagogies Institute

Welcome to the  new  website for the Public Pedagogies Institute.

We hope that this site will provide a platform for engagement and exchange between people and organisations working in the areas of learning and teaching in the community or outside traditional education contexts.

On this site you can learn more about the Institute,  meet our researchers, discover some of the projects our members are involved in, and find out how you can be part of our conference coming up in November 2015.

We are open to new members and participants, so please contact us if you would like to find out more or become involved in the project.
