Prepare to be transported into the visitor experience! For more than two decades, visitors’ behaviors in museums have been examined. Studies have shown that some visitors enjoy reading the history of different exhibits, while others prefer the interactive hands-on exhibits.
On March 5, join Dr. James Schreiber, Duquesne University professor, as he dives into the discussion of the visitor experience through his work in psychology, social psychology, and neuroscience. During his presentation, Schreiber will talk about how visitors have different personalities and how those personalities fit into different categories or “modes” of behavior, and if they can be “flipped” into thinking about an exhibit in a new light.
Schreiber has published more than 65 articles in journals, and has given more than 120 national and international presentations. He has been an Advisory Board member for the Lemelson Center for the Study of Innovation and Invention, Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network within the NICHD, and a panel reviewer with the IES and NSF.
Schreiber is also the former Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Educational Research, The Journal of Experimental Education, and Genetic, Social, and General Psychology Monographs. He received his doctorate in Learning and Cognition from Indiana University Bloomington in 2000.
