Museum Education Roundtable

Formed in 1969, the Museum Education Roundtable (MER) fosters professionalism among museum educators by encouraging leadership, scholarship and research in museum-based learning. MER provides leadership in professional development for a broad and diverse audience of museum practitioners and educators. We do this through the Journal of Museum Education (JME), an international, peer-reviewed publication that is devoted to the theory and practice of museum education. Written by museum and education professionals and scholars, JME articles explore innovations in the field of museum education, teaching strategies for use in museums and other informal learning environments, visitor research, and evaluation.
