The first dozen years of the twenty-first century has seen tremendous change in every aspect of museum work, especially in the ways staff members communicate about collections with the public. The increasing proliferation of digital tools and platforms has enabled much of this change, but there are other forces inspiring educators to rethink their methods and roles. Among these are new research about cognition, evaluation studies on museum learning behaviours, growing preference for inclusive dialogue over authoritative voice, and institutional desire to be a relevant and innovative resource for lifelong learning.
Informed by her 30-year experience teaching with technology in art museums, Deborah will share important lessons learned and promising pedagogical strategies for the digital-minded museum.
