Object based learning
Object-based learning

  • Museums and collections help students’ to improve their employability through the object-based teaching that they support.

  • Through focusing on museum objects, students learn in a hands-on, active and experiential way, which helps them to develop important transferrable skills in areas such as communication and team-working.

Students experiences of object based learning
Students’ experiences of object-based learning

  • “Object Based Learning is more helpful than just standard textbook learning because you can actually see the shape, texture and real size of the specimens.”

  • “Object-based learning Inspired me to do more independent learning.”

  • “It is more interactive. You can discuss ideas and thoughts with other people on the group. It's fun!”
