Abstract [en]

In this special symposium, an international group of researchers from informal science learning institutions and universities in the United States, Europe, and Latin America come together to host a discussion about the synergies that can result from joining learning sciences research approaches and theories with research and practice occurring in informal science learning institutions. We see this symposium, composed of two sets of panels - the first focused on concepts and the second on methodologies - as engaging practitioners, designers, and researchers in a rich dialogue about how we understand learning through learner-centered studies, designs, and research projects in informal institutions. By bringing people in the informal science education and learning sciences communities together, new theories and research methods can be brought to the fore to further what we know of STEM learning across the lifespan (pre-school, school-aged youth, families, educators, working adults, senior citizens, etc.). The majority of the eight scholars (and one alternate) that make up the panel are authors of the forthcoming Issue of the Journal of Museum Education Intersection of the Learning Sciences and Museum Education.
