Dear Kristin, 

We published a paper in 2017 that may be of interest to you that addresses some impacts of pre-visit lessons.  

Pecore JL, Kirchgessner, ML, Demetrikopoulos MK, Carruth LL, Frantz KJ. (2017) Formal Lessons Improve Informal Educational Experiences: The influence of prior knowledge on student engagement.  Visitor Studies. 20(1):89-104.

I would be happy to discuss this with you further off post if that is helpful.   

It is possible that you may be having trouble fining references on this subject because we had a very difficult time when trying to find a home for the paper.  The journals that focus on formal learning environments felt it should go to an informal education journal and vise versa.  When you work across these two areas, it is challenging to disseminate your findings because the work is not wholly one or the other.   

take care,
Melissa

Colleagues -

Have you seen any research on the value pre/post visit lessons? Any articles out there you can point me towards?  We all know pre/post visit lessons are important, but I’d like to be able to quote some research that shows the educational and social/emotional value of these types of lessons.

 

Thank you.

Kristin
