Case Studies

GEM’s Case Studies is produced twice yearly in magazine format, during Summer and Winter. 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 a few 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!

Contribute to Case Studies

GEM produces two editions of Case Studies a year. This publication goes out to all GEM members, sharing projects and practice from across the heritage learning sector. It is a great way to shout about your work and get bitesize, inspiring updates on practice to spark ideas, solve problems and invite professional collaboration.

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

This Winter we producing a special Case Studies on Early Years.
We aim for Case Studies to be as wide-ranging as possible and are happy to accept any submissions that broadly address the theme.

We advise focusing on challenges, problem-solving, learnings and impact, rather than background and procedure. We would would be especially interested to see submissions written by or in collaboration with disabled and neurodiverse people.

The deadline to submit an article for the Winter 2020 Case Studies has now passed. 

How to submit
Case Studies are usually submitted via the Case Studies template. However, we are happy to receive submissions in a different form – free text, different headings, notes with images and diagrams, mindmap, etc. – whatever presentation style works for you!

We ask that text does not go above 900 words and that pictures are attached if possible.

If you need any support or assistance in putting a case study together, including any access requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact Devon Turner, Communications Manager, on devon@gem.org.uk.

Please send all submissions in a Word document email attachment to office@gem.org.uk.
