JME 40 – LOOKING BACK LOOKING FORWARD

The JME40 blogging project is an initiative of the Museum Education Roundtable to commemorate the publication of the 40th volume of the Journal of Museum Education.

Blog editors Susan Spero and Lexie Carlson would love your input! Please contact us at jme40blog@gmail.com with questions, comments, or ideas.
