Nicole Markland


Nicole Markland (she/her) is a museum educator with a passion for art and history. She has been facilitating sharing and learning in museums and galleries for over seven years and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Museum Education at the University of British Columbia.

Nicole began working in museums in 2013, when as a volunteer, she had a transformative learning experience which made her rethink how people learn with and from each other. From that point on, many experiences have informed her practice as an educator, including working abroad as an ESL Teacher where knowledge and learning became less transmissive and more like an exchange between collaborators. For her, learning is a social and communal process, and she enjoys using art and objects to bring together unique and diverse groups of people with differing knowledge, lived experiences, cultures, and interests. She hopes to build experiences with participants that are fun and build memories which will guide, challenge, support, and follow a person throughout their lifetime.
