cardiCast episode 85 – Ethel Villafranca

In this episode of cardiCast, Dr Ethel Villafranca, Curator and Exhibitions Manager at the Museum of Chinese Australian History, discusses her career in museums and libraries that spans more than a decade specialising in museum education, administration and curatorship.

Ethel’s career began in her home county of the Philippines, before Ethel moved to Melbourne to complete a PhD at the University of Melbourne in the ARC Linkage Project Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change Project. Ethel’s thesis is entitled Curated learning: a pedagogical approach to maximise learning environments for students’ deep learning.

Ethel discusses the benefits of starting a career in the GLAMR sector in the graduate internship program at the Lamelson’s Center’s Spark Lab at the National Museum of American History in Washington, US.

Ethel shares the challenges of her work in a community museum, and how the variety of skills and experience over the past decade have prepared her for the many hats her and her colleagues take on at the Museum of Chinese Australian History.
