Basici Page: A Focus for Our Future
As a learning organization with a public audience, the Exploratorium conducts applied research in experience development to drive innovation in our offerings, advancement in our learning, and collaboration with our colleagues and peers. The Exploratorium R&D Agenda expresses our learning intentions and provides direction to help us prioritize our activities over the next few years. It outlines four main themes and higher-order research questions in content, design, and pedagogy that we are pursuing to help focus our efforts on important and fertile areas as we inspire museum visitors, empower educators, and collaborate with partners around the world. We anticipate that sharing these higher-order research questions (with recent examples drawn from our own investigations) may spark additional conversations and fruitful collaborations with similarly curious partners.
