Register now for this free virtual event from National Lottery Heritage Fund's Digital Heritage Lab: "Using Digital to Support your In-person Learning Offer After Re-Opening".

This event is for people working or volunteering in small to medium sized heritage organisations with some digital knowledge.

What is it about?

Over the past year many heritage organisations have expanded their learning offer to deliver programmes, resources and events online to continue to engage with their audiences during lockdown.  As we start to think about re-opening and welcoming back our visitors - what elements of online learning will we take with us?

In this online workshop, Amy Todd and Liam Cunningham from Dig Yourself will explore the key learning points of the past year and consider how digital can support live sessions going forward.  From expanding audiences, increasing accessibility and engaging with new communities - there are many ways in which you and your heritage organisation can blend your in-person engagement with digital offers.

Using case study examples, Amy and Liam will look at what's possible when it comes to online learning for different audiences, budgets, skill-sets and staff/volunteer resources. They will take a closer look at the different ways to undertake heritage learning through digital including:

  • Live vs recorded sessions
  • Online resources
  • Virtual assemblies for schools
  • One-off competitions
  • Virtual work experience
  • In-person interpretation
  • Blended learning
  • Community educations
  • Online events

What will I gain?

  • Ideas for developing online learning for your heritage organisation
  • Understanding of how digital can support your in-person learning offer after re-opening
  • Confidence to plan a hybrid heritage learning offer that works best for your organisation

Time: Monday 17th May, 10.30-12.00 BST
