Museums and Education Post-Covid

19 May, 2022 @ 11:00 am 3:30 pm

Education is at the heart of all museum activity and prior to COVID-19 museums provided education activities predominantly in the form of guided tours, staff visits, school outreach, loan boxes and professional development for teachers. When the pandemic hit many took their education online, firstly by providing digital resources for use at home or in school and in time some experimented with virtual visits utilising video conferencing tech. As we emerge from the pandemic museums are looking to the future, looking to relaunch some of those in person activities which are so important while capitalising on the opportunities of digital engagement both for local and global audiences. On this day we pose the question – what does a blended education programme look like for small – medium sized museums? This day is brought to you by XpoNorth with Support from MHH.
