Workbook Launch: Practising Reflection

Earlier this year, a group of students and academic staff from Museum Gallery and Heritage studies ( Daria Bakhshalieva, Baoyi Cheng, Lindsey Calvert, Imogen Cloet, Areti Galani, Foteini Koilia, Hannah Marsden, Gayle Meikle, Olivia Yin, and Katelyn York) co-designed a workbook for students and early career practitioners to practice tools in reflection. We will launch the book alongside the final MGH Futures event on Thursday, 14 July.

The reflective process is used in many fields. However, in the Museum, Gallery and Heritage sector, it is becoming increasingly important to consider how your actions impact and frame your work, your audiences, and an organisation’s activity. The workbook introduces different ways to reflect to encourage and support students in their reflective learning and practice. The workbook contains tools and prompts the user can use to aid reflection in different situations.

The workbook was designed in three intensive co-design workshops by MGH students and staff at Newcastle University with contributions from sector specialists as part of the project:
Co-designed Reflective Practices in Museum, Gallery and Heritage Studies (2021-22) with the support of the Newcastle University Education Development Fund.
