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.┬áThe 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).
