Case Studies

GEM’s Case Studies is produced twice yearly in magazine format, during Spring and Autumn. Case Studies allows those working in heritage education to share examples of good practice and challenges so that others may benefit from the lessons learned.

All GEM members receive our Case Studies two weeks before they are available on our website. Case Studies will now be delivered in a digital format, but print on demand will be available.

Case Studies #24 on Access and Inclusion is available here!
Case Studies #25 on Early Years is available here!

GEM Case Studies are themed with previous editions having included GEM projects, museums and schools partnerships and Access and Inclusion.

Call for Papers – “Remote learning in museums, heritage and cultural settings”

The coronavirus pandemic forced museums, heritage and cultural settings across the globe to close their doors and think differently about learning. In this Case Studies edition, we aim to feature the innovative work of learning professionals who have explored different models of remote learning, both digital and physical, especially during lockdown
