Museum studies and museum education with particular focus on science museums/science centres.
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a full-time lecturer in museum education (Democritus University of Thrace) and I, also, teach at the postgraduate course Cultural Organisations Management at the Hellenic Open University. I have a specific research interest on the communicative and educational role of science museums/science centres and I have published on the subject internationally (see here for my research publications, https://duth.academia.edu/AnastasiaFilippoupoliti). My research approach is interdisciplinary spanning the fields of museology, informal and non-formal education, cultural history of science and science communication. Other research interests are: visitor studies, didactic transposition in museum exhibits, school-museum interactions, early childhood and children’s museums.
