Areas of Expertise
Collaboration is key to ELM's work. Partnerships include museums and other organizations
committed to the education of children and represent institutions from around the world.
Notable partnerships - Through a United Nations grant, Dr. Sharon Shaffer worked in Kuwait
over the course of a year, collaborating with educators at the Amricani Cultural Center, a
museum representing the largest collection of Islamic Art and artifacts in the world. Currently,
Shaffer has a three-year appointment as a senior advisor with Children's Museum Research
Center, at Beijing Normal University, China where her work focuses on curriculum development
and professional training for new children's museums and a museum school.
