Museums are challenged to provide learning opportunities to a diverse audience. Visitors come to museums with varied backgrounds, motivations, interests, and prior knowledge. Based on these factors they regulate their learning experience, choosing what, where, and when to engage and learn. This pilot study was designed to investigate how learning occurs within museum exhibition spaces. The study took place in The Mind exhibition at Melbourne Museum.
The aim of this pilot study was to better understand the nature of learning that takes place in museums, through the lens of self-regulated learning theories.
