Learning, Teaching and Curating: Situated Digital Experience in Museums and Heritage sites,
we will present the course lesson by lesson and you will be able to take an active part in an experimental learning from home.
Since the project in the actual course is a map or a game for a heritage site of the participant’s choice, we will take you step by step through the stages of this voyage.

You will also get to see projects that were created by former participants from all around the globe in cities and museums of art, archaeology and science.

Talila Yehiel graduated from the Ceramic Design Department at Bezalel Academy of Art. She also holds a Master’s degree from the History of Art Department at Tel Aviv University. She has extensive experience in teaching pupils at all levels as well as in mentoring teachers.
Her academic background, which integrates the material world, the creative process, and the world of research, furnishes her with tools that afford profound insight and a rich diversity of working strategies.
Ms Yehiel has been involved in the creation of special tailor-made sites for museum visits, a project called “Learning Based on Location – Wandering”. She has tried it out on various groups of students and adults. Wandering around an exhibition hall by means of this site gets people involved and encourages them to interact with the exhibits.
Ms Yehiel has supported students from Mexico, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Austria to create their digital experimental learning maps and games on the MuseumRun site.
