This research is jointly funded by University College London and the Institute of Education, London. It is a collaboration between the Institute of Archaeology and the London Knowledge Lab.  The research seeks to expand and develop new interdisciplinary methodologies to better understand interaction and meaning making around digital museum exhibits. The objectives of the research project are to:

1. Identify how visitors use space and interact with digital exhibits and one another to make sense of them;

2. Explore the relationship between motivation to visit a digital exhibit and the interactive experience itself;

3. Critically interrogate and expand the methodological and analytical frameworks (e.g. embodied interaction and multimodal perspectives) available to study visitor interaction, meaning making and learning with digitally mediated museum exhibits;

4. Generate empirically based insights to inform museum exhibition design, visitor research and evaluation
