Informal science is a burgeoning field that operates across a broad range of venues and envisages learning outcomes for individuals, schools, families, and society. The evidence base that describes informal science, its promise, and effects is informed by a range of disciplines and perspectives, including field-based research, visitor studies, and psychological and anthropological studies of learning. Learning Science in Informal Environments draws together disparate literatures, synthesizes the state of knowledge, and articulates a common framework for the next generation of research on learning science in informal environments across a life span. Contributors include recognized experts in a range of disciplines--research and evaluation, exhibit designers, program developers, and educators. They also have experience in a range of settings--museums, after-school programs, science and technology centers, media enterprises, aquariums, zoos, state parks, and botanical gardens

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Communicating science and technology has become a priority of many research and policy institutions, a concern of many other private and public bodies, and an established subject of training and education. In the past few decades the field has developed and expanded significantly, not only in terms of professional practice, but also in terms of research and reflection. As well as introducing the main issues, arenas and professional perspectives involved, this unique volume couples an overview of the problems faced by practitioners with a thorough review of relevant literature and research." "The handbook format makes this a student-friendly resource, but its breadth of scope and expert contributors mean it is also ideal for practitioners and professionals working in the field. Combining the contributions of different disciplines and the perspectives of different geographical and cultural contexts, this original text provides an interdisciplinary as well as a global approach to public communication of science and technology."--Jacket
