Research is undertaken in all areas of museum practice as it is fundamental to the museum's purpose and programs. Participants will explore the kinds of research conducted in museums and will learn practical guidelines for planning and conducting research projects. Topics covered will include discipline-based research, collections-based research, research relating to museum functions and activities (such as exhibit and interpretation research), and research methodologies such as field research, audience research, and oral history interviews. All participants are registered on a first-come, first-served basis when course registration opens. Spaces are limited, so register early! To obtain credit for the Certificate in Museum Studies, all participants will need to register in the Program and pay all applicable fees associated with the Program application and textbook costs. For information about the CMS Program, please contact Karli Kendall, Program Lead at learning@museums.ab.ca or 780.424.2626.
