Year in Reflection
Happy Holidays MER members! As another year comes to a close, check out some highlights from MER’s work in 2013 in the annual report. Amongst the highlights are significant growth in MER membership, increased participation in AAM, the Journal of Museum Education re-design, and welcoming Beth Maloney into the role of MER Board President. It’s been a phenomenal year for MER and we’d like to thank all of you for your continued support and participation. We look forward to what 2014 holds in store for museum educators across the field!
New Resource – JME Reader Guide
As you reflect back on this year, don’t forget to check out our first ever Reader Guide to accompany the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of Museum Education. The Reader Guide connects JME readers with probing questions from the author of an article to facilitate discussion and critical thought across museum education professionals. Revisit the first Reader Guide from Teri Evans-Palmer about her article, “Raising Docent Confidence in Engaging Students on School Tours.”
