Education and Interpretation Recorded Webinars

Planning for Technology

(Part 1 of series, The Digital Museum)

Whether your institution is small, large or somewhere in-between, many challenges confront you as you plan for, adopt and adapt to technology. This webinar addresses the use of technology and its impact on our professional practice, our institutional operations and the pursuit of our missions. 

Technology and Museum Visitor Experiences

(Part 2 of series, The Digital Museum)

Museums have traditionally described for whom, how and why they interpret their collections or concepts. This webinar introduces you to the Context Continuum, a practical tool for better understanding the experience our institutions offer and the elements that may be lacking for many visitors. Presenters discuss a variety of options suited to different types of environments, each using technology and media to "meet the visitors where they are."

Online Learning and Education

(Part 3 of series, The Digital Museum)

Which online learning environments work for which audiences? What are good strategies for beginning and sustaining online learning programs in museums? This webinar explores how online learning has been implemented by museums, with presenters providing examples and sharing experiences regarding the use of online interactions for multiple generations and entrance narratives.

Trends in Technology

(Part 4 of series, The Digital Museum)

Adoption of open source tools, open access models, user-generated content, co-authorship, social networking and mobile technologies has affected the ways museums interpret their mission statements, articulate their strategies, encourage audience interaction and participation, reach an expanded global community and share digital collections. This webinar addresses the questions and challenges surrounding trends in technology that have changed traditional ways of thinking, creating new collaborations and renewing the museum's vision for the future.
