Among cultural heritage institutions, it has been known for a long time that museums and archives encourage learning and promote well-being. It is today widely accepted that learning through cultural experiences can develop and enhance creative, personal and interpersonal skills, but how can these learning activities be more adequately described? How can cultural heritage institutions be utilised and assessed by visitors, people in training at the institutions, policy makers, and other stakeholders? One way of ensuring that these organisations reach their full potential is through the use of the Heritage Learning Outcomes, a method and framework for planning and evaluation and also a way of communicating the relevance of learning experiences. This book is the result of the project “Implementing Heritage Learning Outcomes in the Nordic and Baltic Area” funded by Nordplus Adult. It describes the Heritage Learning Framework and gives ideas, inspiration and examples of how the Heritage Learning Outcomes can be used, in particular by museums and archives, in order to increase their relevance to individuals and to society.
