University of British Columbia (UBC) Centre for Cultural Planning and Development, I am pleased to tell you about a new online professional development workshop we are offering this Spring: Digital Culture and Museums, starting April 2. This workshop can be taken individually, or applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning – an international professional learning program delivered 100% online.
Online Workshop: Digital Culture and Museums
Three scheduled online sessions. Thu Apr 2, 9 & 16 from 11am-1pm PDT
Instructor: Anra Kennedy, Content and Partnerships Director, Culture24.
This online workshop examines ways in which museums are responding to some key digital trends and challenges, including: How can museums make their digital collections fit for purpose? How do museums respond to user expectations around content sharing, re-use and re-purposing? How do we know what’s working? What can we learn from institutions that are ahead of the curve? We look at a range of projects that have found success through tactics such as targeted use of social media, in-gallery digital enhancing the visitor experience, striking a crowd-sourcing cord, beautiful design and thoughtful use of high quality content.
Instructor: Anra Kennedy is responsible for the development and delivery of Culture24’s partnerships, content strategy and portfolio of websites. She is currently leading Connecting Collections, an Arts Council England-funded national partnership aimed at making digital collections useful and discoverable for children.
