Unlocking the value of practical learning
A museum conservation perspective at the National University of Singapore Museum
Practical knowledge and its acquisition can often be hampered by a lack of real-life situations to learn through the act of reiterative processes. University museums are uniquely positioned to offer opportunities that promote practical learning by being connected to a network of tertiary scholarship, on the one hand, and actual operational needs of an organization anchored in real-world experiences, on the other. This paper is an attempt to highlight the range of programs that have been undertaken through a variety of models of collaboration and funding that seek to enhance practical learning through a museum conservation practice viewpoint.
