Christine Healey is a PhD whose research focuses on the delivery of education programs at select art museums and galleries. The purpose of this research “Education in art museums today: An exploration into pedagogies and practice” is two-fold:
- Firstly, to understand, describe and document the roles of art museum educators involved in the delivery of education programming through interviews, fieldwork observation, analysis of program goals and delivery practices including exemplar programming.
- Secondly, to reflect and engage with these subjectivities in Christine’s own practice as a museum educator at the Shrine of Remembrance.
Conducted from an Australian perspective, this project contributes to a field in which little Australian research has previously been conducted. Secretary of Museums Australia Education and committee member of Education Network Victoria, in 2013 Christine was awarded a Hugh Rogers Fellowship by the Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association.
