Some museums are organizing their staffs in new ways, distributing responsibility for what has traditionally been the work of museum educators among other staff, with other titles, in other departments.
We want to find out more about this trend and invite you to fill out a short survey. Please go to:
We will share the results at the session, "Are Museum Educators Necessary?" at the American Association of Museums Annual Conference in Chicago. The session is Wednesday, May 16th at 2:00 pm.
