Is your doctoral work about learning in museums and how to analyse such learning? The field of research in museum education has considerable momentum both in Europe and in North America. Because these two regions are characterised by different and perhaps complementary approaches to research in museum education, this Nordic doctoral course is an ideal setting to contrast and discuss these differences and complementarities with experts and peers.


Day 1: Plenary addresses by Dr. Lynn Dierking and Dr. François Mairesse, followed by workshops that discuss the papers and presentations by the speakers
Day 2: Nordic early-stage researchers present and discuss their recent research with the participants
Day 3: Doctoral students discuss their own projects in smaller workgroups arranged by theme. The keynote speakers act as discussants for the students.

The keynote speakers and early-stage researchers will be present throughout the programme to respond to the doctoral students’ questions and comments. They will have read/viewed the presentations of the participants in the thematic group they will be coaching, and they will serve as discussants and constructive coaches on the final day of the course.

The European Science Education Research Association Special Interest Group on Science Education in Out-of-School Contexts will award two travels grants of €100 for doctoral students who are accepted on to the course and who are ESERA members. See further information on this at
