From Museum Studies Programmes to Museum’s Hiring Pools: Evaluating Digital Literacy and Skills Taught in Higher-Education Courses

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We would like to invite participants to a roundtable discussion where we will explore the failure and successes of Museum Studies curricula in relation to the digital literacy and skills that the sector seeks to develop. Our aim is to provide a space to reexamine the existing relationship between academia and GLAM institutions for a more sustainable practice-led partnership.

Deep Dive sign-ups open Wednesday, September 9. Space is limited and advance registration is required—so mark your calendars! Once sessions are filled, there will be a waitlist and MCN will notify attendees as spots become available.
