Please join us for a free public lecture with Professor Ross Parry, University of Leicester, and a chance to find out more about our Museum Studies postgraduate degree run jointly with Leicester and Hong Kong University’s School of Professional and Continuing Education.
Today, our museums can offer digitised collections and interactive exhibits. Their channels for communication can be multiple, and their technical infrastructure sophisticated. And yet, whatever the level of connectivity we may have in our museums, and whatever prevalence of technology there may be, everything always comes down to the skills of the staff at the heart of the organisation.
That is why for the last two years the ‘One by One’ national research project in the UK has been attempting to understand the conditions that need to be in place in any museum to allow digital skills to thrive in the workforce. This lecture will share the findings of the six action research projects each exploring a different condition needed for successful museum digital transformation.
All Welcome, however you must register to attend this event. We particularly welcome museum professional, friends and Alumni from the University of Leicester and there will be an opportunity to meet and talk at the end of the lecture.
