About the workshop
In order to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, academic museums and institutions have been closed to students and the public. A lot of us have since been working from home. As a reaction, the recognition of the value of online collections, online exhibitions, digital online tools and social media increased significantly, and accordingly their adoption and use.
Now, some countries start to re-open museums and educational institutions, while others remain locked down. Maybe, after roughly two/three months, this is a good time to pause for a moment, look back, share our experiences and try to evaluate: What worked? What would we’d like to keep? What didn’t work? What have we learned? What are the possibilities and limitations of the digital for our work in and with academic heritage?
We would like to invite you join us for our online workshop Thursday, June 25th.
