About the Webinar – Education is at the heart of most museum missions and learners of all ages represent a core part of on-site attendance. But what if you’re eager to learn and not able to make it to the museum? Whether to overcome challenges of affordability, geography, or pandemic closures, it’s time for institutions to consider how digital advancements can help them to expand opportunities for learning and engagement beyond the museum. This webinar will introduce the spectrum of distance and e-learning opportunities and will highlight various digital initiatives that museums have put in place for inspiration, with examples from the Caribbean. After the presentation, participants will have the chance to ask questions and share their own thoughts and ideas.
Sarah Hill of Lord Cultural Resources, will be leading the training segment with a 30 minute presentation. Following the presentation, Lisa Howie and Monique Barnett-Davidson will be providing the Caribbean perspective by offering examples of distance and e-learning initiatives at their institutions.
Lisa Howie is Director of Learning and Engagement at National Museum of Bermuda and is owner & curator of Black Pony Gallery
Monique Barnett-Davidson is Acting Senior Curator at National Gallery of Jamaica.
