Learning activities include support for formal learning from earlier years to a variety of different curriculum levels. Engagement activities range from provision of resources for independent use to direct engagement sessions within GLAM’s inspiring spaces.
Researchers may be able to feed in to these activities and resources by working closely with GLAM learning teams to develop new and existing content. Schools engagement can give researchers the chance to communicate with people who already have an interest in the subject.
Costs can be variable so contact the relevant team to discuss (see below for contact details).
Study days and school visits: Study days are designed to enrich and support delivery of the school curriculum across various key stages. They offer unique access to GLAM’s collections with curators and Oxford University academics. Study days could include university-style lectures and workshops, live virtual classes, exhibition visits, guided tours when linked to special exhibitions, hands-on practical sessions facilitated by academic researchers or museum staff, and collections up close.
Resources for independent use: Resources which support curriculum linked learning and play for use both at home and at school can include videos, quizzes, activities and games, which may be available as online and/or printable resources.
Please be aware that GLAM venues have full and busy programmes and it may not be possible to pick up activities that have already been fully developed or to deal with urgent requests. Ideally, activities should be co-created with GLAM from project conception and researchers should get in contact early so that we can work together to develop your ideas. Please note that while researchers may contact GLAM departments directly they are also encouraged to contact departmental/Divisional PER facilitators for interim support/guidance.
