About the Museum Education Monitor

Museum Education Monitor (MEM) tracks and records research and resources in museum education worldwide. The aim of MEM is to help create a 'road map' to new and current learning in museum education. Its goal is to enhance the development of theory and practice in the field by both academics and museum workers. MEM evolves in response to the expressed needs and interests of its subscribers. To date there are over 500 subscribers in countries around the world, including Canada, U.S.A., U.K., Australia & New Zealand, India, China, France, Germany, Sweden, Brazil, and many other countries!
