What does the ideal syllabus for museum technology work look like?

We’re crowdsourcing an ideal syllabus of the top ten literacies needed for technology work at galleries, libraries, archives and museums. Tell us what you think in this one-question survey –> https://goo.gl/forms/9D9JyLmsj6HJ4yxB3

We’ll be sharing the collaborative results first at MCN in November, and with more to follow.

  1. What a wonderful thought-provoking crowd sourcing idea. I am very interested in what others have to say, contribute and are doing in terms of teaching on the subject. For the past 3 years I’ve taught a course on Museums in the Digital Age and one thing is glaringly needed: more literature and research. Happy to share my syllabus if you’re interested in it, just email me. Best, Adrienne D’Angelo
