Opening up Museums: how inclusive open education is transforming the museum experience

March 9, 2022 @ 00:00

Experts panel

Either as a response to the impact of the Covid-19 crisis or a strategic move towards a more participatory culture, most museums worldwide are now providing open access online to a large amount of their curated digital heritage content. In order to promote collaboration and learning through co-creation, many opened up their online collections to social tagging, or started working with communities of volunteers to transcribe manuscript archives for digital publishing projects. Some others started crowdsourcing and crowdfunding initiatives. In this new context, Museum MOOCs and OERs have become popular tools and are now used in formal and non formal learning contexts as well as for professional development. As the learning experience becomes increasingly open, hybrid, ubiquitous and personalized, museum education comes to be more engaging, participatory and transformative, as well as more accessible and inclusive.

In this webinar a panel of expert researchers will discuss how open education is contributing to the digital transformation of the museum learning experience. They will show how open education is being embraced by museum educators and explain why that is helping to address inclusion for all, but also widening participation, developing critical thinking, fostering digital citizenship, and promoting wellbeing. Speakers will share best practices and present significant experiences from such projects as INCLUSIVE MEMORY, MUSACCES and SPEKTRUM.
