We also commissioned three pieces of research into current issues and held two Museum Learning Conferences to share our work.
King’s College London evaluated the overall project and reported significant positive impact on Champions’ professional practice, students’ learning and the participating organisations.
“This has been one of my favourite experiences in teaching so far. It has expanded my enjoyment of teaching and shown me the importance of both cross-curricular projects and museum learning.”
Mark Blackford, ICT Teacher, The Langley Academy
Museum learning means how we use real things, real stories and real people to inspire teaching and learning.
The Langley Academy is the only museum learning school in the country. Our core partner museums are the River & Rowing Museum, The V&A Museum, Reading University Museums and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
Together we have pioneered moving beyond a ‘vendor’ model of education to a partnership model where museum learning projects are created together and involve using collections to inspire learning in school, at the museum and beyond.
