(Museology in the Curriculum of University and Non-university Education of Museum Pedagogues)
Abstract: The declared necessity to professionalize the museum work in what is now the Czech Republic can already be traced back to the first half of the 19th century. The gradual development of professionalization efforts, which were mainly connected with key figures of museums and museology, professional associations and later also with academic education centres, has also led to stratification of professional job positions in museums. Along with this, we can follow up increased demands for erudition of professional museum workers. Together with gradual development of museum pedagogy as a discipline and changes in the spectrum and quality of museum practice in the field of education, this general evolution trend also concerns one of the recently emerged museum professions – museum pedagogues (educators). Hand in hand with dynamic transformations, which in the past five years modelled this profession (particularly with regard to its factual establishment, legislative implementation and competence and qualification standards), various teaching models are evolving in the field of university and non-university education. The study categorizes these key models (according to the current education concept) and brings examples, reflecting the graduate’s profile and contentual construction of the study curriculum. The models show different views on the importance of museology education for future museum pedagogues and its position in their professional training.
