The Museum Educator's Manual addresses the role museum educators play in today's museums from an experience-based perspective. Seasoned museum educators author each chapter, emphasizing key programs along with case studies that provide successful examples, and demonstrate a practical foundation for the daily operations of a museum education department, no matter how small. The book covers: *volunteer and docent management and training; *exhibit development; *program and event design and implementation; *working with families, seniors, and teens; *collaborating with schools and other institutions; and *funding. This second edition interweaves technology into every aspect of the manual and includes two entirely new chapters, one on Museums - An Educational Resource for Schools and another on Active Learning in Museums. With invaluable checklists, schedules, organizational charts, program examples, and other how-to documents included throughout, The Museum Educator's Manual is a 'must have' book for any museum educator.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The second edition of Museum Educator's Manual is a practical update for the evolving field. The authors address programming, staffing and funding as well as the nuances of how people learn in the museum environment. This hands-on guide featuring experienced and innovative professionals is an inspiring contribution as we address dramatic changes in how museums and audiences interact. -- Sandra Harris, Executive Director, Desert Caballeros Western Museum and Organizational Strategist, @museumlife
The inclusion of Universal Design and Technology make this second edition of The Museum Educator's Manual an even more valuable resource for museum educators. While geared towards those in the beginning and mid-level of their careers, this book will have broad appeal for a wide range of practitioners in museums of varying sizes and types. -- Keni Sturgeon, Director of Science & Education, Pacific Science Center
The Museum Educator's Manual is a complete resource for museum educators, at any point in their career trajectory. It includes practical tools for a wide range of applications, from strategic planning to program development and implementation. As a museum director, it is refreshing to see an emphasis on aligning the museum education programs with the overall mission of the larger institution. It further dives into the timely discussion of the role that current technology plays in museum education planning and implementation, both the opportunities and the potential pitfalls. I look forward to sharing it with our museum education team as a guide for creative program development. -- Kathleen Socolofsky, director, UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden Assistant Vice, Chancellor, Campus Planning
