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 are delivered in a digital format, but print on demand will be available.

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.

The next edition of the Case Studies will be focused on Reimagining Engagement and will feature the work of the Art Fund Reimagine Grant holders. If you have previously received this grant and would like to share the project you and your team developed using the funding, submit your Case Study suggestion form to Katya by 22 January 2024.

This publication builds on the guidance which the Clore Duffield Foundation has produced focusing on hybrid and blended learning, delivered in partnership with GEM & Engage.

The Covid-19 pandemic triggered a major digital transformation within the museum learning sector. Museums had to find new resilient solutions to develop relationships with existing audiences and continue delivering their learning offer. This edition of GEM Case Studies featuring impressive examples of hybrid learning in museums, galleries and heritage sites across the UK.

We thank the Clore Duffield Foundation for their input in this issue of the GEM Case Studies.
