After more than two decades of teaching, Jan joined Museum Victoria in 2006 and she coordinates humanities programs at the Immigration Museum. Over the years, Jan's passionate belief in the power of education to build strong communities has driven several innovative programs for teachers and students, including:

Narratives Across Cultures: a partnership program with both Deakin University and VUT leading to an ALTC research project 'Teaching and Learning in Public Spaces'

Cultural Diversity Quest: a partnership program with DEECD celebrating cultural diversity in our secondary schools, culminating in an exhibition at the Immigration Museum for Cultural Diversity Week 2010

Small Object Big Story: A program in which participants learn research techniques, explore their personal histories, uncover the stories embedded in familiar objects, and learn how to share their discoveries through exhibitions and publications. This program formed the basis for Making History.

Congratulations Jan Molloy!
