Producing displays and exhibitions

Have you ever stood in a museum or an art gallery and watched how people interact with the displays? Very few people walk slowly from one display board, case of artefacts or painting to the next one in the line, and then the next, and so on. Some have not even come through the door, even though there may be items there that would be of interest to them. So how do you ensure as many people as possible will see your material?

  • Theories of learning
  • Styles of learning
  • Designing your display
